Large Ethafoam blocks are used to protect the umbilicals so they do not get cut or damaged during packaging for transport. They also act as spacers to compress the Umbilical into the coil shape as it is loaded on to a ship for transport. Umbilicals like this are used in underwater oil exploration providing all of the life support services needed for underwater exploration. Ethafoam is considered a flexible foam and is available in a variety of densities from medium flexible to semi rigid.
