Lamination is the technique of manufacturing a material in multiple layers, so that the composite material achieves improved strength, stability, acoustic insulation, appearance or other properties from the use of differing materials. A laminate is a permanently assembled object by heat, pressure, welding, or adhesives. Composite foam is base on XPE (XLPE) & IXPE foam, laminated with different materials to meet customers’ requests for better properties.
There are different lamination processes, depending on the type of materials to be laminated. The materials used in laminates can be the same or different, depending on the processes and the object to be laminated. An example of the type of laminate using different materials would be the application of a layer of plastic film—the "laminate"—on either side of a sheet of glass—the laminated subject.

Insulation foam is always laminated with aluminium foil to reach better heat reflection and thermal insulation. XPE & IXPE insulation foams are widely used in roofing wall and structure, it is Eco-friendly and easy to install, also can greatly save the energy.
Irradiated cross-linked polyethylene foam (IXPE foam) is very fine celled microcellular foam. IXPE foam is used for medical applications, heart forming, high-end protective packaging pads or materials for various products. The surface is more smooth and flat. It has more excellent mechanical performance. Good thermal insulation, waterproof, sound insulation, shock absorption, thermal forming, anti static foam, foam tape etc.
ESD / Conductive PE Foam is polyethylene foam filled with carbon (black ESD foams), to get electronic grade foams for ESD protection. The IXPE foam has conductive, static dissipative properties offer protection for critical electronic devices, assemblies and equipment.
The min thickness can do 0.5-1mm, max width 1.2 meter, supplied in sheet or roll.
Reflective Foam is made by chemical / physical cross-linked closed cell polyethylene foam and aluminum foil, the aluminium foil plays the role of reflecting radiation heat from sunshine with reflectivity of 96-97%. And the XPE foam has the function of trapping air so as to stop convection heat.
Super Thin IXPE Foam is irradiation cross-linked polyethylene foam with polyethylene as the main raw materials, by adding foaming agents and other additives, through Irradiation to change the molecular structure of polyethylene into a tight stereo network structure, high-grade, super thin closed-cell foam materials.
