Material Description:
Polyethylene has long been considered the work horse of thermoplastics. Its chemical inertness coupled with the ease of fabrication and low cost make it an ideal solution for a variety of applications ranging from harsh chemical environments to notebook covers. Polyethylene, the largest volume thermoplastic polymer used today, is available in a wide variety of grades and formulations that have an equally wide range of properties. Some polyethylenes are flexible, others are rigid; some have poor impact strength, others are virtually unbreakable; some have good clarity; others are opaque. Service temperatures can range from -40 to +200°F. In general, however, polyethylenes are characterized by toughness, excellent chemical resistance and electrical properties, low coefficient of friction, near-zero moisture absorption, light weight (approximately one-eighth that of steel) and ease of processing.
Polyethylenes are classified into three main categories, according to density: Low, Medium and High. A fourth type, ultra-high-molecular-weight-polyethylene (UHMWPE), is beyond the high-density range. In some cases, properties of this high-performance plastic are similar to other polyethyenes, but in others cases can be dramatically different. Also available is crosslinked polyethylene, a special grade which, by chemical or irradiation treatment, becomes essentially a thermoset material with outstanding heat resistance and strength.

Polyethylene is classified into several different categories based mostly on its density and branching. The mechanical properties of PE depend significantly on variables such as the
extent and type of branching, the crystal structure, and the molecular weight. UHMWPE(ultra high molecular weight PE) HMWPE (high molecular weight polyethylene) HDPE (high density PE) HDXLPE (high density cross-linked PE) PEX (cross-linked PE) MDPE (medium density PE) LDPE (low density PE) LLDPE (linear low density PE) VLDPE (very low density PE).

LDPE is noted for its low temperature flexibility, toughness and corrosion resistance. It is not suited for applications where stiffness, high temperature resistance and structural strength are required. The ease of fabrication and a low cost factor make this material the choice for many applications.
HDPE is well suited for applications where a greater tensile and compression strength is needed. HDPE possesses excellent impact strength and corrosion resistance. It meets FDA requirements for direct food contact and can be sterilized easily in boiling water.
Polyethylene Foam Sheet
Polyethylene Foam Sheet Supplier (PE) - Fullchance Industrial Co.,Ltd is a leading supplier of all expanded closed cell polyethylene foam sheet. Furthermore, a self adhesive backing can be applied to one or both faces to aid in the application process. Various densities including LD18 PE Foam, LD24 PE Foam, LD45 PE Foam, and LD60 PE Foam are readily available. Polyethylene sheets are available in different thicknesses starting from 1mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 20mm, 25mm right up to 30mm thick.
We are fast becoming a market leader in the supply of all polyethylene foam sheeting requirements.
Due to the very strong and resilient qualities of polyethylene foam it makes it an ideal material for uses including shock absorbing, vibration deadening, acoustic and thermal insulation, and cushioning PE Foam strips in packaging applications.
We supply our polyethylene foam sheeting in a whole host of colours including the most common white and dark grey. If you have a specific colour in mind we are normally able to supply it so please ask a member of our sales team for more information.
Polyethylene Foam Cut Parts...
We offer a full in house cutting service of our polyethylene foam sheeting meaning goods can be supplied in cut shapes, sizes, strips or any other variation required. We supply Polyethylene foam sheets and strips to many organisations as well as private individuals. A peel away paper self adhesive backing can be added to any Polyethylene foam sheet or strip. Polyethylene foam strips provide excellent seals in a whole host of applications. Fullchance Industrial Co.,Ltd frequently supply a range of plain or self adhesive backed expanded Polyethylene foam strip to solve issues such as air flow control, cushioning, water leakage and anti vibration problems. Furthermore, due to the relative cheapness of closed cell Polyethylene foam it means that requirements can be tailored around a tight budget.
