Cross-Linked Polyethylene Foam

Non-Cross-Linked Polyethylene Foam

Cross-Linked Polyethylene Foam

Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets Limited, we maintain a close relationship with a variety of suppliers, allowing us to provide a wide variety of materials that can be tailored to meet the requirements of our customers. One such material is our cross-linked polyethylene foam. Cross-linked polyethylene foam is a lightweight, closed-cell material that exhibits a variety of resistance and insulation properties. Our cross-linked polyethylene foam is manufactured in blocks 2 meters by 1 meter with skin on both sides. It can be produced in thicknesses from 3mm to 100mm (thicker using lamination), and can be manufactured plain, with self-adhesive backing, or with a peel-able liner on one or both sides.

Whether we manufacture as a one-off or in large quantities, we work closely with our customers throughout the manufacturing process to provide a completely bespoke service. In addition, we perform all conversions on site, providing complete quality control at all stages of the process. Utilizing state-of-the-art machinery and a highly trained workforce, we produce top quality products to meet a wide range of specifications.  

Cross-linked polyethylene foam is available from us in many forms including:

    What is Cross-Linked Polyethylene Foam?

    Cross-linked Polyethylene foam is a popular foam available in many grades and thicknesses. Sometimes referred to as just PE foam, it is a durable, water resistant, flexible, and lightweight material used in a range of applications. In cross-linked polyethylene foam, the molecules are joined by chemical bonds, forming a three-dimensional structure. To create a durable bond, the polymers are chained together and heated to form the "cross-linked" structure.


    Benefits of Cross-Linked Polyethylene Foam?
