    What is Low Density Polyethylene Foam?

    Low density polyethylene is a high-quality polyethylene foam composed of microscopic sealed cells that interlock to prevent water or air passage, making it an ideal foam for a wide variety of applications.

    This closed-cell foam is a thermoplastic created using a high-pressure process via free radical polymerization. As a result, low-density polyethylene foam is neither completely solid nor completely flexible, forming a semi-rigid material.



    Why use Low Density Polyethylene Foam?

    Low density polyethylene foam is a UV resistant, lightweight and water-proof material commonly used to manufacture products including containers, dispensing bottles, tubing, and plastic bags.

    There are many advantages to using low density polyethylene foam such as its non-toxic, water resistant and non-corrosive properties.
