What is EVA Foam?

You may have heard of EVA Foam used for multiple different flooring types or even Cosplay costumes, sports equipment, crafts and set design. It is a soft, yet durable polymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate.

EVA foam is easy to work with and comes in a variety of colors and thicknesses. With such variety, EVA foam flooring is perfect for exercise rooms, gyms, weight rooms, trade shows, martial arts studios and more.

The (many) Benefits of EVA Foam:

  • Noise Absorbent: EVA foam also absorbs noise – an added bonus for a weight room or work room
  • Anti-Fatigue: The material’s softness means it lessens fatigue from long periods of standing
  • No-Slip: Our mats have remarkable grip, so they won’t slide across slick floors
  • Easy-to-Clean: EVA foam is easy to clean and is resistant to chemicals, making it ideal for sweaty gyms or playrooms
  • Water-Resistant: It is highly weather resilient and has low water absorption, so it can withstand spills, wet feet, and messy pets
  • Safe Material: Parents like that the material is nontoxic, and BPA free, as well as soft for falls
  • Comfortable Cushion: Customers report that the material is comfortable, providing just the right amount of cushioning for safe and comfortable exercise, play and work
  • Ease of Installation: Foam mats easily interlock for quick installation and removal
  • Lightweight: They can be transported, stored and reinstalled without hassle or difficulty.
  • Sturdy and Durable: EVA foam doesn’t easily rip or show wear, so it will look new and fresh for a long time to come.

EVA foam floors offer a great combination of durability, comfort, usability and customization. They are an attractive and affordable choice for any surface that demands cushioning, transportation, easy cleaning or safety.

  1. Can EVA mats be glued down on an exterior application and what would the cost per piece for addition edging?

    1. Hi Loren! EVA Foam mats like those found on our website are generally intended for interior use without an adhesive. That being said, we aren’t saying they can’t be used outside, just that they were primarily designed for indoor use. Depending on your goals you might want to check out our commercial rubber or PVC tiles, which are much more durable outdoors. There is adhesive available for use with the PVC tiles. As far as the edging for EVA foam is concerned, we do not sell the edging individually as it is pre-packaged with the mats right at our manufacturing facility. If you just need a few extra, call customer service at 704-929-8945 and they can check the warehouse for any available extra stock.
