polyfoam® Polyethylene (PE)

polyfoam® extruded polyethylene is outstanding for use as a packaging material.  Its shock absorption, elasticity and thermal insulating properties combined with chemical resistance and antistatic qualities make it an ideal product.  Additionally, it features high-level acoustic dampening and anti-vibration qualities.

Standard polyfoam® is white, however it can be coloured at your request.  Laminating techniques can be used to apply various decorative and functional materials to its surface.  It boasts a smooth and elegant finish that is pleasant to handle, and will not cling, peel, pill, pop or crack.  This enhances its suitability as both a lining and a finishing material.

polyfoam® features some outstanding properties.  It is durable and dynamically stable with a high tear strength and chemical resistance.  It is suitable for repeated and continual use under a wide range of conditions.

Essentially, polyfoam® is 98% air, in the form of bubbles that have been thermo-chemically welded.  Each bubble is fully sealed, attaining a highly buoyant, lightweight and waterproof product.  These individual air cells also make this product excellent for preserving cold and hot energy.

polyfoam® Rolls have many uses, from packaging to carpet underlay.  Standard thicknesses are from 0.8mm to 5mm.  Standard roll width is 1.2m, custom width can be obtained by slitting the product to your requirement, we can also perforate rolls for easy separation into sheets, rolls are available in lengths from 100m, up to 600m.
