What is EVA Foam?

EVA Foam is a soft, yet durable polymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate commonly used in flooring, but also in sports equipment, crafts, and set design. The material is commonly used to manufacture flip-flops as it is soft without being sponge like. EVA foam is easy to work with and comes in a variety of colors and thicknesses.

EVA foam flooring is perfect for exercise rooms, gyms, weight rooms, trade shows, martial arts studios, and more. Foam mats easily interlock for quick installation and removal. They can be transported, stored, and reinstalled without hassle or difficulty. Customers report that the material is comfortable, providing just the right amount of cushioning for safe and comfortable exercise, play, and work. The material's softness means it lessens fatigue from long periods of standing. EVA foam also absorbs noise - an added bonus for a weight room or work room. Mats have good grip, so they won't slide across slick floors. EVA foam is easy to clean and is resistant to chemicals, making it ideal for sweaty gyms or play rooms. It is highly weather resilient and has low water absorption, so it can withstand spills, wet feet, and messy pets. Parents like that the material is nontoxic, and BPA free, as well as soft for falls.

Not only is EVA foam flooring comfortable and easy to use, it is also sturdy and durable. The material can withhold heavy use and rough conditions for years, making the choice of EVA foam flooring a good investment for the future, whether for a child's room, a work room, or a martial arts studio. It doesn't easily rip or show wear, so it will look new and fresh for a long time to come.

EVA foam comes in just about every variety you can imagine! Because the material is so easy to work with, it can be produced in many fun colors, textures, and thicknesses. Designs range from letters for children's rooms to wood grain and it even serves as a great base for carpet. This material is the perfect choice for a bright,colorful room or for a simpler, muted palate.

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. As always, we've got several great mats in mind which can provide the perfect flooring solution for your home and we're always happy to answer any questions you may have about which mat is the best fit for you.

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

      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.
