Evazote – As with other closed cell foams, Evazote is equipped with a range of remarkable properties suited to various industries. Properties include:

Impact resilience – Due to its cross-linked, closed cell structure and it’s unique chain repeating molecular units, Evazote has exceptional impact resilience, making it ideal for a range of items, such as knee and shin pads, footwear and electromagnetic shielding.

Chemical resistance – With the availability of two different grades and four densities (30,35,45 and 50kg/m3 ), Evazote provides excellent resistance to acids, alkalis, oils and solvents, making it perfect for electrical, plumbing and gas industries.

Stratocell – As another widely-used polyethylene based, closed cell foam, Stratocell also has various beneficial properties, including:

Cost-effectiveness – Stratocell can be reused a number of times without degradation, helping businesses to keep to budgets and meet environmental obligations.
