Polyethylene Foam Sheets

PE foam is closed cell foam made from Polyethylene and blended copolymers. It has a high level of chemical cross linking. The result is semi-rigid product with a fine uniform cell structure that is suitable for use in a wide variety of situations and applications. Benefits of Polyethylene Foam include;

  • Impact and vibration absorption
  • Weather and chemical resistance including splash resistance to oils and fuels
  • Acoustic and thermal insulation properties
  • Buoyancy with low water absorption
  • Suitability for thermo-forming and thermo-moulding


More about Polyethylene Foam

Polyethylene and EVA Foam are similar, however Polyethylene is firmer and more resistant to heat and more cost effective than EVA Foam. It also offers a better compression set. We stock PE Foam in a range of densities from 30 to 250 kg/m3 and in a variety of different colours.

Polyethylene Foam is formed in a mould, resulting in a sheet of foam known as a bun. The maximum length, width and thickness of the bun varies depending upon the foam's density. We can cut the bun into sheets of the required thickness or fabricate the material into a particular shape, piece or profile


Popular Uses for Polyethene Foam

Polyethylene Foam is a versatile Closed Cell Foam suiting a broad range of different uses and applications. It is an effective replacement for many materials including felt, neoprene, natural rubber, polyurethane foam, pvc foam, wood composites, mineral wool and fibreglass.
