CUSHIONING MATERIALS - EVA & EVA PLUS

EVA foams are in high demand and first choice in foot orthotic treatment today because of their exceptional properties - compared to Polyethylene, PUR foams, and a number of other cushioning materials or substances. EVA is the abbreviation for “Ethylene Vinyl Acetate” and features a fine and uniform foam structure with tiny air bubbles trapped in closed cells. EVA has remarkable benefits and is therefore suitable for use in a wide variety of applications, some of which are:

  • available in various durometers / densities and colors
  • good durability and sturdiness, good recovery characteristics after compression
  • tear resistant (ability to withstand stress without obtaining cracks or breaking)
  • water- and solvent resistant attributes
  • resilient, depending on the durometer and material composition
  • easy to cut, glue and grind in a lab environment
  • thermal moldability


As known, we at Perpedes believe in the outstanding supporting qualities of our self-produced glass and carbon fiber composite orthotic shells and blanks. However, the combination with high quality EVA foams made in Europe makes your foot orthotic treatment truly exceptional.

We are happy to invite you to discover the hidden but precious attributes of the Perpedes EVA and unique EVA PLUS foams as part of our state-of-the-art, bi-laminated DRYFEET+ top covers.
