Cross linked PE Foam
Cross linked PE Foam
Cross linked PE Foam is a cross-linked polyethylene sheet of closed cell structure.
Its unique high density profile offers the multiple benefits of exceptional resilience, compression strength and impact resistance...besides excellent elasticity, elongation at break and tear resistance.
Cross linked PE Foam is also hygienic, non-toxic, non-polluting and CFC-free. It is resistant to moisture, fungi and chemicals. Vibration absorbent. And abrasion proof.
Cross linked PE Foam closed cell structure simultaneously ensures extremely low thermal conductivity, virtually negligible water absorption and transmission, and a high level of buoyancy.
Though a cross-linked material, Cross linked PE Foam can be easily thermoformed: by either vacuum or compression techniques. In addition, it can be conveniently sliced, slit, perforated, die-cut, laminated and embossed.
Thanks to such diverse advantages, Cross linked PE Foam can be put to a whole range of uses.
★ For example, its exceptional toughness and impact resistance makes it the ideal material for protective sports gear like pads and gloves, life jackets and trekking rolls.
★ For the same reasons, Cross linked PE Foam is already being used extensively in the footwear industry, for components like insoles, socks and collars. For gaskets and helmet lining in the automobile industry. And for foot mats, bathroom mats, double - sided adhesive tapes and other such consumer items.
★ Its combination of resilience, abrasion resistance, thermal insulation, elasticity and shock absorption also qualifies Cross linked PE Foam for demanding military applications. It is suited to such diverse uses as packing of ammunition, missiles and radar equipment, helmet lining, and materials for protection against extreme temperatures.
Cross linked PE Foam has the unique capability of supporting up to 18 times its own weight. This gives it exceptional buoyancy, and makes it ideal for different marine-linked applications: fishing net floats, boat fenders, floating hose, even swimming pool floating mats.
★ Cross linked PE Foam has also made a mark in the medical equipment industry, with uses like :
- shock-proof packing of ECG machines, orthopaedic too & vaccines.
- manufacture of hygienic, non-toxic artificial limb components requiring prolonged touch of the human skin; and - production of highly sensitive, vibration absorbing ECG sensor knobs.
