Polyethylene foam (PE)

Polyethylene foam is a closed-cell material with good mechanical properties. It is resistant to ageing and weather while providing good heat insulation at the same time. It is highly resistant to acids and alkalines, semi-crystalline and does not absorb any water.

A differentiation is made between non cross-linked and cross-linked foams, whereby in cross-linked foam a differentiation is made between chemical and physical cross-linking.

We can process polyethylene foam for you in a variety of ways and in accordance with your design e.g. through punching, splitting, thermoforming, milling, laminating etc.
The material is extremely well-suited to seals and sealing strips, for insulations, as transport protection or for footfall sound insulation and heat insulation.
