This category lists organizations that primarily manufacture polyolefin based foam and copolymers. Popular types of foam included here are polyethylene, polypropylene and ethylene vinyl acetate. Manufacturers may additionally be involved in processing, converting and fabricating foam or in other activities, although none of these are the primary activity. A polyolefin is a polymer produced from a simple olefin as a monomer. Examples are polyethylene and polypropylene. A copolymer is a polymer derived from two (or more) monomeric species. An example of a popular copolymer is ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), which is the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate.
