    What's the length of the reticulated foam in the box and how many 5-foot towers can I make from a box?

    DavId, is the reticulated foam considered food safe? Another question is……will the foam rot and breakdown quickly over time? In other words can it be repeatedly re-used? Is it as durable as the matala mat fiber?

    What is the product name of this foam on the hibco website?

  • 3Hdon 1 year ago

    Isn't the filter foam made from Polyurethane? Do you have an MSDS? I haven't found Polyurethane to be considered food safe in most cases.

    I have two questions about this foam.
    Is it healthy or will it rot and dissolve in time?
    Is it durable enough to be able to use it as many times as fiber based media?

    The gutter guard foam from Home Depot looks very similar. I tried a gutter guard a few years ago from another company the only problem I had was cutting it and then making sure my wicking strip was deep enough in the gutter to reach the water, and the company said it was treated with a UV chemical to keep it from the sunlight damage, so I stopped using it not knowing if that chemical was getting into my plants. HIBCO the company I get the foam from makes a gutter guard and does private labeling, if you want to sell the stuff under your own label.
