Floam is made of special, tiny micro beads that
stick to one another to form anything you want.
Its safe, non toxic, and can be used over and over
again. Floam sticks to most anything for
decoration but can be easily removed if desired.
Floam is essentially clay + polystyrene (aka
styrofoam). A company called EdiZONE invented and
developed an ultra-light fluid called FLOAM
(somewhat like shaving cream but durable), and
used it to devise an improved design for
wheelchair cushions helping to relieve pressure
hot spots for users. Then, EdiZONE licensed its
wheelchair cushioning material, FLOAM, to a number
of other companies. Nike acquired FLOAM for
footwear, sports, and fitness applications. They
call EdiZONE's unique cushioning material "NIKE
FORM". A new child's molding compound which is
ultra-light and bouncy was created and licensed by
EdiZONE to Hasbro Toys. FLOAM has also been
successfully implemented in knee pads for aircraft
construction workers, carpet layers, and others
