PE FOAM

PE FOAM

PE stands for Polyethylene and has similar polymers of ethylene. It is a common form of plastic and its usage is abundant in our lives. PE 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 foam is easy to process and fabricate. It has high load bearing characteristics that help manufacturers reduce packaging costs as they can use thinner and smaller amounts of foam yet still protect their products.
UFP Technologies can recommend the proper polyethylene foam material for your unique packaging, component, or product. Our engineering team will work with you to design your solution and manufacture the final parts.

PROPERTIES

Polyethylene Foam Material Characteristics :

  • Low strength, low friction and low hardness
  • Temperature tolerance vary with type of polyethylene
  • Very lightweight
  • Non-abrasive
  • Good electrical insulator
  • Easy to
  • Non-Dusting
  • Superb strength and tear resistance
  • Excellent shock absorption & vibration dampening properties
  • Flexibility
  • Impervious to mildew, mold, rot, and bacteria
  • Resistant to water, chemicals, solvents & grease
  • CFC free
  • Odourless
  • Excellent buoyancy
  • Very cost-effective
  • Excellent thermal insulation properties
  • APPLICATIONS

  • Polyethylene Foam Rolls:
    PE foam rolls are widely used for its property of providing commendable protection against damage caused while delivery.
  • Polyethylene Foam Sheets: Used in manufacturing of mats, transporting delicate items.
  • Polyethylene recyclable plastic bags: polyethylene is made of recycled polymers; this form of packaging is much cheaper and readily available. Low density Polyethylene Reusable Bags (LDPE) are thick gauged and these heavy duty plastic bags often referred to as "Bags-for-Life"
  • They are highly recyclable, convenient and can be reused as kitchen catchers

    ADVANTAGES OF LDPE

  • Recyclable (with the exception of the bag with some prodegradant additives)
  • High reuse
  • Does not biodegrade (excepting bags with the additive), making it useful for landfill
  • ADVANTAGES OF LDPE

    Closed cell PE:

    This is a popular packaging material used widely round the globe and has relatively low weight. If there is a suitable recycling system it has no limits how many times you can use packaging made of this kind of PE. It has only two types- blown and laminated

    Cross Linked PE:

    Cross Linked PE is a chemically cross linked, closed-cell structure plastic foam; all of its types have excellent and very delicate cell structures. This type of PE foam can be easily thermoformed and its water absorption is low also the thermal insulation values are very good, and it has high vibration damping, small water vapour permeability, resists bad weather conditions and is generally resistant to chemicals. This foam of PE is widely used in automotive industry, acoustics, aircraft industry, houseware, building industry, electronics, packaging, sport industry.
