Polyethylene Foam Sheets Capabilities

PE foams are easy to convert into products as they are easy to cut and are adhesive friendly. The polythene foam material has many advantages and is excellent for the lamination of pressure sensitive adhesives or for liquid glue application. Read about the advantages of Polythene here.

There are many benefits to using polythene closed cell foam and with these advantages comes the potential for many different applications. From non-toxic children's toys to food environment cleanliness, PE foam offers a waterproof wipe clean surface that has many different applications and uses.

Closed cell high density polyethylene foam has proven excellent for the packaging and transport industry. The two main benefits for these industries is that, due to the heavy duty lightweight material qualities of the high density polyethylene foam, products can be safely packaged and transported without adding too much extra weight to the package.

PE foam, also referred to as LDPE foam, has also been tested for use in health applications such as dermatology and limb supports and castings.

Polyethylene Foam Applications

Waterproofing Qualities of PE foam

Polyethylene closed cell foam sheets and rolls are used in applications where the material is required to provide sealing properties to prevent ingress of air, dust, moisture and water. As the material is of closed cell construction, it requires minimal compression to provide a seal.

Closed cell polyethylene foam is suitable for use in a wide range of applications, in a variety of industries – some of which include:

• Construction
• Glass and Glazing
• Shipbuilding
• Railways
• Aircraft and Aerospace
• Electrical
• Engineering
• Transport
• Automotive

The most common use of the PE foam material is in applications such as air conditioning systems, hot and cold water transmission units, freezer and chiller systems and numerous ducting systems.

They can be adapted for use in applications including flexographic printing processes, mechanical fixation and high-performance sealing tapes. Polyethylene closed cell foams are extensively used in numerous areas in the automotive industry for sealing, noise reduction, vibration dampening and interior trims.

PE foam can be used in a variety of applications and in many different sectors. Find out how you can use this durable water-resistant material for domestic appliances here.
