    best product for custom tool organisation

    Awesome product. came with 2 sheets, each 2' x 4'. I found that 30 mm was perfect for my tool drawers. take your time. Buy the long nose marker (silver) and hot knife with adjustable thermostat from fastcap. I used the hot knife "stamp" accessory to make finger holes to pick up the tools out of the foam and to smoothen out height transitions underneath the tools in the white. the hot stamp does not discolor the white foam as long as you keep it at the medium/low temp. Also remove any black residue on the stamp before pressing into the white foam. that will help keep the white clean and crisp.

    Great stuff

    I use it to protect my model trains while traveling to train shows in my area. I don't have to worry about the fine detail parts being damaged or knocked off. I will be getting more soon, adding more cars and locomotives to my collection. No trouble cutting it and it seems to hold up very well over time.

    Response: What a fun application!

  3. Perfect!

    Super easy to cut and peel. I was able to easily mark the tool outline using the long tip marker. I think its awesome how you can cut to different depth for different parts of each tool for an absolute custom fit!

    I love Kaizen Foam

    I love Kaizen Foam it works great... especially in my truck "moving" tool shop! Everything stays in place.

  5. Kaizen Foam

    works fine if your cutting all the way thru, but if your wanted nice separation of the layers its not going to happen, which was the main reason i got this product

    Response: Bob, Sorry you are having trouble. Did you watch any of our videos on specifically how to do this? If you need additional assistance, please call and we can talk you through this! 888-443-3748

  6. Kaizen foam

    It cuts easy and seems to be pretty resistant to quite a few things. I haven't been able to really in depthly try it out the resistances. But I'm very pleased with this product. Only flaw is you can't put as much stuff in the drawers but everything is completely organized makes it easier to find stuff and know if something is missing. I'm quite happy. Very happy with customer support from this company. Great company to deal with I definitely recommend this product if you want nicely organized drawers and I highly recommend dealing with fastcap. Thank you again for a great product.

    Your home workshop video inspired

    HI Paul; your home workshop video inspired. This kitchen drawer has been driving me crazy for years. Perhaps you have a new market for your product?! It also bought some good bonus points with my Greek wife;). Best, Patrick

    I LOVE IT!

    Hey Paul!

    I received my first piece of Kaizen Foam today and I LOVE IT!

    I convinced my boss to let me put together a prototype to show him the benefits of Kaizen Foam (Everything has a place and everything is in its place). It looks amazing and the before and after comparison is night and day!

    I just wanted to extend a thank you for the knowledge that you share and the fires that you ignite inside people's minds. You have changed the way I look at EVERYTHING.

    almost Kaizened my wife

    Love this stuff. I've used it in my van, my shop and in the house. I told the wife "You sit still too long and I'll cut a place out in your shape so I know where to find you". Great stuff.

    Kaizen Foam is a hit!

    My client is loving this kaizen foam! They're starting to realize work is more enjoyable, more fun when there is orderliness. It’s less tiring… just like living in a beautifully clean home vs. living in a pig sty.

    Love it

    All my office supplies are cut in, in easy reach, and easy to put away. However the layers on the 1 1/8” product are a little thicker than advertised, there are only six layers including the black ones. I don’t know if this matters. The layers in the thick foam in the FLEX backpack look quite a bit thinner. I just wonder if your supplier is not giving you what you’ve ordered.

    Great product, never had a single problem using it. Works as advertised.

    Check out my video!

    Shadow Box

    This is a great product. The layers do not peel quite as easily as shown. I used it for shadow box display.

    easy way to organize your tools

    I love Kaizen Foam

    Kaizen foam is a great organizational product. I've converted half of the drawers in my toolbox to Kaizen foam and I find it so much more convenient and organized. I know instantly when something is not where it belongs, and I find myself putting it back more often than leaving a tool out. I'll be doing my wood working tool drawers next. I've also got an idea to use the scrap pieces to make an improved ammo can. I wish I had this stuff 25 years ago when I got my first toolbox.

What are the dimensions?

Kaizen Foam Dimensions are 24"x48" plus/minus 1". Tolerances are unavoidable in foam products due to shrinkage and compression during storage and shipping.

Do you have MSDS information on Kaizen Foam?

For MSDS information press here (PDF).

Can I get different colors?

We have the black and white, black and red, and black and yellow foam available for high contrast. If you are interested in another color please let us know. We are currently looking at offering a green foam in the future but do not have a release date at this time.

Didn't you used to have white?

Yes. It was discontinued in 2017.

Can I get custom-sized Kaizen Foam pieces?

Unfortunately, we do not offer any custom cutting for Kaizen Foam. Kaizen Inserts, our dealer in CT does offer custom cuttings, for more information please check out their website:


Why is Kaizen Foam so expensive to ship?

The Kaizen Foam sheets are considered an oversized item by UPS and are charged a dimensional shipping rate charge because of how much space they take up for the shipper. To offset this we offer free shipping on orders of $100 or more, or we recommend checking out one of our dealers in your area to get this product for the lowest cost.

Can I order Kaizen Foam online if I am not in the United States?

We do not do online sales for Kaizen Foam to overseas customers. This product is very expensive to ship. Please contact us to discuss shipping rates and dealers in your area. Please email us at or call us at 888-443-3748.

Is this good for packing to ship heavy items?


Will spraying the tools with oil to prevent rust hurt the foam at all?

Other than leaving some oil on the surface of the foam it will not damage the foam at all. It is a closed-cell foam, meaning that liquids will not absorb into it, but rather just stay on the surface. 

Has anyone tried gluing Kaizen Foam into a plastic toolbox? I would like to use something I already have like Liquid Nail.

That mostly depends on what material of plastic toolbox and if Liquid Nail will stick well to the plastic. The liquid nail will work great with the foam! – The foam is closed cell polyethylene, but is fairly porous so it bonds well, the main concern in adhesive choices is heat, as some glues create a heat reaction when curing which could melt the foam.
