CLOSED CELL CROSS LINKED POLYETHYLENE FOAM
In addition to our full range of open cell polyurethane foams, Foam Engineers is unique in the UK in offering from stock an equally full range of closed cell foam materials too. Polyethylene Foam, also known as PE foam or LDPE foam, is a thermoplastic which is blown into a foam format. The most widely available PE foam is known as non-cross-linked foam.
Other types of closed cell foam include cross linked PE foam. The cross-linking process enhances many of the performance characteristics of the foam. The foams can be made with fine and regular cells, with a wide working temperature range and excellent thermal insulation properties, they are chemically inert. These foams have excellent physical properties and display good thermo and pressforming characteristics. They can be obtained in a range of vivid colours too.
