1)Irrdiated Crosslinked polyethylene foam (IXPE foam)is very fine celled microcellular foam. Irradiated Crosslinked foam is used for medical applications, heart forming, and high end protective Packaging and consumer products. This foam can actually be printed on very clearly.
2) Chemically crosslinked foam(XPE foam) also has good physical properties, but has a larger more random cell structure. Chemically crosslinked foam can also be used for packaging, heat forming and a large variety of applications. These foams are available in a wide variety of formulations including EVA modified to make the foams more pliable, as well as with fire retardants. Crosslinked foams are available in both rolls and sheets form, and in a variety of colors, as well as natural, white and black
The properties of PE foam
1) Light weight, good elasticity 2) Weatherproof and waterproof 3) Flame retardant 4) Sound absorption 5) Heat insulation 6) Elastic and flexibility 7) Shock absorption 8) High reflection 9) Closed cell foam
1) Heat Insulation: Singlefoaming structure can reduce the loss of heat between air convections, suitable for making heat preservation pipes and boards. Good anti-dew capability, suitable for humid environments like refrigerators, air-conditioners and ice houses, etc.
2)Cushion Capability: Semi-hard quality foams have good rebound capabilities after strong impact, suitable for the packing of instruments, semi-conductors and electronics, etc.
3) Sound Absorption: Good sound and noise absorption capability, suitable for sound absorption and insulation parts of automobiles, electro-motors and other equipment and environments with loud noises.
4) Shaping Capability: Good heat endurance and ductility capability with even density, suitable for making deep interior parts like shaping in vacuum and hot environments, like the air conditioning vaporizing tank of automobiles, hot-shaped peak canopy of vehicles and shoes, etc.
5) Good chemical, oil, acid and alkali durability capabilities. It is safe and odorless, easy for machining and casting, and can be mixed with many other materials. It has a wide developing area as a new environmentally-safe material.
