Frequently Asked Questions

PE foam refers to foams made from polyethylene. Typically it is made from expanded pellets made with use of a blowing agent, followed by expansion into a mold in a steam chest – the process is similar to that used to make expanded polystyrene foam

Polyethylene foam is a durable, lightweight, resilient, closed-cell material. It is often used for packaging fragile goods due to its excellent vibration dampening and insulation properties. It also offers high resistance to chemicals and moisture

Polyethylene, being the closed cell foam that it is, makes for a foam with a very low water absorption. This means that unlike polyurethane, it can be wiped clean with a wet rag or towel with minimal absorption

This material is combustible and therefore should be properly used or installed. During shipment, storage, installation and use this material should not be exposed to flame or other ignition sources.

Polyethylene foam is excellent for insulating objects. Its flexibility allows for it to bend and insulate at the same time. Straight or flexible pipe insulation is a great example of PE insulating a product

Polyethylene is melted until molten, then mixed with a kind of halogenated hydrocarbon which serves as a foaming agent. The mixing is conducted under high pressure, and then fed into a controlled, heated screw extruder, and forced out a die opening

Polyethylene foam is durable as it has no abrasiveness, dimensional stability and good compression creep properties, so it has a wide use in a lot of fields, and it is also a recycling material which could be reused. In addition, polyethylene foam products are 100% recyclable and durable

Polyethylene, or PE foam is also CFC-free, recyclable and odourless, therefore providing an environmentally friendly solution for foam and packaging needs. Environmentally friendly choices are becoming increasingly important, even for large scale industrial processes such as foam fabrication

There are three different widths available, namely: 1.1m, 1.4m and 1.8m
The thickness starts from 4mm to 12mm. Other custom thicknesses can be produced on demand
