Characteristics of Polyethylene Foam

Polyethylene foam, also known as PE, PEF, Ethafoam & Polyfoam, is a semi-rigid, closed-cell type of foam with a near-infinite amount of applications due to the following characteristics:

Polyethylene Foam

Polyethylene foam is renowned for its ability to withstand great amounts of pressure without losing its original cushioning properties making it the ideal foam for applications where support & durability are crucial. Polyethylene foam products are durable, reusable & 100% recyclable.

In addition to fabricating polyethylene foam products to custom designed specifications, New England Foam stocks polyethylene foam bun, block, cube, pad, plank, profile, roll & sheet forms, in densities ranging from 0.9 to 9 pounds per cubic foot (PCF) & those colors most requested: white, green, pink, blue, gray & black.

Additional 14 anti-static, conductive &/or electrostatic dissipative (ESD) types of polyethylene foam are also available upon request.

Manufacturing Polyethylene Foam

The structure of polyethylene foam is neither entirely solid nor entirely empty. Produced via a three-step extrusion process (mixing, expansion & cooling), polyethylene foam can be manufactured to satisfy a specific range of desired performance benchmarks such as comfort, support and durability.

It is during this manufacturing process that flame retardant additives can be introduced to meet various fire code standards, as well as anti-static, conductive and electrostatic dissipative (ESD) additives.
