Closed Cell Chemical Cross-linked Polyethlene Foam (XPE or XLPE) has many good properties:
• Acoustic insulation
• Corrosion resistance
• Cushion, buffer
• Light weight
• Rebound elasticity
• Shock absorption
• Thermal insulation
• Waterproof, moisture-proof
• Weather resistance
XPE / XLPE Foam is chemically crosslinked PE foam. It is produced in continuous rolls resulting in a foam product with uniform, closed cells and smooth skins on both sides. It is light weight, flexible and soft to touch, yet strong, tough, resilient and resistant to moisture, many chemicals and temperature extremes.
The PE polymer experience high temperature foaming after extrusion, cross-linked and foaming at the same time. It is the ideal foam for applications where support and durability are crucial.
XPE foam is available in densities ranging from 25ks/m3- 200kgs/m3, thickness, width, length etc foam dimentions and color all can be customized by clients.
* Extremely low water absorption (closed cell structure)
* good thermal insulation, acoustic insulation
* energy saving, cold resistance without brittle (low Tg)
* hydrolysis-resistant suitable for extensive temperature UV and chemical resistance
* double fine surface, light weight, shock-absorbing and cushion, laminated layers.
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.
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.
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.
