Polyethylene foam is an industrial foam typically used for nautical applications. This material is very strong, shock absorbent and resilient to wear.
Polyethylene foam is lightweight, flexible, non-abrasive, offers superb strength and tear resistance as well as excellent shock absorption and vibration dampening properties.
Polyethylene is a closed-cell foam. It is first blown into a foam format from a thermoplastic base. The material is very adaptable and quite durable.
The high compression ratio of Polyethylene foam allow it to preserve its resilience even when subjected to extremely high pressure. Additionally, it provides the material superior load bearing properties.
Polyethylene foam has extraordinary adaptability which allows you to utilize it in practically all applications. But our clients frequently utilize it for things like packaging, case fillers, buoyancy, carpeting, etc.
The material’s suppleness makes it especially helpful for packaging applications because it can withstand impacts without endangering the contents of the package.
