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.
Polyethylene Foam Material Characteristics :
PE foam rolls are widely used for its property of providing commendable protection against damage caused while delivery.
They are highly recyclable, convenient and can be reused as kitchen catchers
ADVANTAGES OF LDPE
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.
