Expanded Polyethylene Foam (EPE) Expanded polyethylene foam, also known as EPE, is a molded semi-rigid, non-cross linked and closed-cell type of polyethylene foam that has a near-infinite amount of applications due to the following characteristics: Non-abrasive.
EPE Foam Sheets are a special sound-proof, heat insulated cushion material. Its surface is smooth and has the functions of shock-proof, water resistance and antisepsis, non-toxic and with no peculiar smell. It is widely used in mattresses in large quantity, construction, food packaging, industrial and electrical packaging.
Our company is engaged in the manufacturing and supplying of premium quality Extruded Foam Profiles. The advantage of foam profiles is lower weight and good sound insulation. The extrusion of foam profiles and cross-linked or non-cross-linked sheet material is one of our specialties.
We are also specialized in providing solution with Cross Linked Polyethylene. With its rigidness it will enhance the cushioning effect for the safety of the product during transit.
Following are some of the specific features of our EPE Form:
- Cushioning and shock absorption property.
- as numerous tiny closed cells.
- Have very fine and uniform structure available from 1 to 8 mm extruded thickness.
- Thermal insulation.
- Unique heat lamination process is used to build up the thickness from 5 mm to 100 mm.
- Easy to fabricate.
- Water / moisture resistance.
- CFC free.
- Non toxic, hygienic and fungal resistant.
- Light weight
