Strong and Resilient
Polyethylene foam is a strong and resilient closed-cell foam that is extruded in plank or profile shapes. It is ideally suited as the material or a component material in shock absorbing products, this closed-cell padding is also a great way to dampen the effects of vibration. This makes it an excellent packaging material for items that are fragile or require long distance transportation.

It is a very cost effective solution available in several densities, firmness, colors, and anti-static. PE is available is planks, sheets or it can be extruded into custom profiles.
