Polyethylene

Strong and Resilient

Polyethylene foam is a strong and resilient closed-cell foam that is extruded in plank or profile shapes. It is ideally suited as the material or a component material in shock absorbing products, this closed-cell padding is also a great way to dampen the effects of vibration. This makes it an excellent packaging material for items that are fragile or require long distance transportation.

Cost Effective and Versitile

PE is also very solvent resistant and highly buoyant. It is easy to fabricate, CFC/HCFC free and odorless. PE is non-abrasive and does not create dust when fabricating. It is a very cost effective solution available in several densities, firmness, colors, and anti-static. PE is available is planks, sheets or it can be extruded into custom profiles.

Cross-Linked Polyethylene

Compression molding and thermoforming are common fabricating methods used when creating components, packaging and products from cross-linked polyethylene foams. These fabrication methods provide a unique finish that is aesthetically pleasing while still providing the necessary cushioning and support required.

Cross-linked polyethylene foam is a closed-cell foam characterized by a compact feel and resistance to water. It has many of the same properties as polyethylene foam but also has the ability to protect class “A” surfaces and is consequently used extensively in the packaging of medical products and equipment.
