Polyethylene Foam Sheet

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd are proud to be one of the UK’s leading suppliers of  Polyethylene materials. We have a huge storage facility enabling us to stock blocks ‘buns’ of polyethylene, in a range of densities and colours all ready for conversion. Other names sometimes used to describe this material are block foam, PE foam, polyethylene sponge or LDPE (low density Polyethylene) foam.  Sheets of Polyethylene foam are split from 2 metre x 1 metre sized blocks of material using our state of the art splitting machines, which can quickly and accurately produce sheets m from which we can split sheets and rolls of various thicknesses starting from as little as 1.5mm and supplied in 1 metre or 2 metre lengths.

Alternatively the blocks can be joined and split down into rolls of 10 metres or more , which can then be cut down into the desired sized sheet by the customer or end user as required. As we offer in-house conversion and lamination services, we can not only split materials down, we can also laminate layers together to produce non-standard thicknesses or composite sheets using layers of different materials, as well as being able to apply self adhesives or foil facings. Our facilities house a number of presses, log cutters, strippers, bandsaws, CNC machines and coaters, which can be used to produce a number of Polyethylene foam products including gaskets, washers, strips, pads and fabrications, all of which can be cut from sheets.

    What are Polyethylene Foam Sheets?

    Polyethylene foam is a chemically cross-linked foam, part of the thermoplastic foam family, which has small, uniform, closed-cell structure, creating a  high quality, lightweight material, it is a great material with a number of resistances and insulation properties as well as being available in a variety of grades, densities, colours.

    Densities in which Polyethylene foam are produced include 25kg, 30kg, 45kg, 60kg, 100kg, EEV, EVA, Conduction, Anti-static and Flame Retardant.  All of these grades are manufactured in 2meter x 1meter sized blocks, which can easily split into sheets. Polyethylene can be taken in full sheets, or cut into finished usable parts such as strips, gaskets, washers or pads.  


    Why use Polyethylene Foam Sheets?

    Polyethylene foams  are manufactured in a range of grades and densities offering various properties for use in different applications, with many available in a choice of colours.  Polyethylene foam materials have a low compression set, are resistant to water, oils, chemicals and weather. Being a closed cell material, it has good tear resistance and doesn’t support mold or fungus growth.

    Polyethylene foam has a number of desirable properties including resistance to wear and tear, Ozone, UV and a working temperature range of -60°C - +90°C. It also offers excellent mechanical characteristics including noise and vibration control and can be used for thermal insulation. Sheets of material are often preferred where only a small amount of material is required, which saves the customer money and reduces waste, it is also easier to transport and store.

    Types of Polyethylene Available

    Having a network of manufacturers and suppliers, allows ASG to offer a full range of polyethylene materials, many of which are readily available from stock for a quick turnaround. Below is just a selection of some of our popular polyethylene material types we can offer:

    • Polyethylene (BLock foam)

    • Chemically cross linked
    • Plastazote
    • Stratocell

    Benefits of Using Polyethylene Foam

    • Lightweight, strong & durable
    • Good impact and shock-absorbing properties
    • Water-repellent and buoyant
    • Excellent chemical, solvent, grease and fluid resistance
    • Good thermal and acoustic insulation
    • Easy to cut, convert & shape

    Advantages of Using Polyethylene Foam

    As Polyethylene foam is manufactured in various grades, customers benefit from a number of advantages and a choice of properties allowing the material to be utilised in numerous industries and applications from dust seals and flame retardant gaskets to theatre and production props. Polyethylene foam is a man-made material, with a closed cell structure  which can be used in sealing applications against liquid, gases and particles.

    Polyethylene foam also has a number of desirable properties including a high resistance to wear and tear, Ozone, UV, resilience to repeated impact and a working temperature range of -60°C to +90°C. It also offers excellent mechanical characteristics including noise and vibration control, for shock absorption and can be used for thermal insulation.Polyethylene foams are aesthetically pleasing, with a nice texture which is easy to fabricate, laminate and cut into parts using a range of techniques and processes for use within the theatrics, building and construction, HVAC, automotive, packaging and sports industries.
