Polyethylene Foam

 

Polyethylene foam is a closed cell, lightweight, durable foam material. Based on its excellent vibration dampening and insulation qualities, it is often used in fragile goods packaging. Additionally, it is very resilient to chemicals and moisture.

 

Polyethylene foam allows manufacturers the ability to reduce costs by using smaller amounts and thinner pieces of foam, while still maintaining a high level of protection on their products. This ability of the polyethylene foam comes from its high load bearing characteristics.
