Crosslinked polyethylene foam
Polyethylene foams are semi-rigid, closed-cell materials .
Physically and chemically crosslinked foams are available in densities ranging from 25 to 45kg/m³. Their fine cell structure, smooth appearance and soft touch are particularly appreciated for the design and production of presentation packaging. Their water tightness is ideal for sports articles and their light weight is an asset for creating large 3D objects. A beautiful range of colours will add a touch of originality to your creations. At Sipla this range of polyethylene is 100% recycled and are certified EN71 (standard for the safety requirements for toys).
Polyethylene foams can be layered in thin thicknesses, combined with other softer materials and finished with a four-colour print (see printing page).
