Ethafoam is a resilient and flexible closed-cell polyethylene foam with a durability that makes it ideal for protecting just about any object as it can handle repeated shocks and impacts. In order to cushion and protect fragile items, Ethafoam is machined to the required shape and size to provide cushioning furniture for the level of protection needed during shipping or storage. Whatever the weight of the items to be transported or stored, from a kilo to a hundred kilos and more, Ethafoam materials are available in a variety of strengths and densities to allow for all situations.
A low-density plastic foam made by expanding polyethylene approximately 30 times in volume, it has excellent chemical resistant and energy absorption under impact, low water absorption and water-vapour transmission, good insulation value, no odour, and is easily fabricated. Ethafoam is a true cushioning medium, able to sustain its resilience under repeated impact. Its high load bearing characteristics, means it can be reused several times thus making it a very economical material. Being non-crosslinked polyethylene, it can be recycled as can the scrap, waste and offcuts.
- Suited for applications that need shock absorption, vibration dampening, insulation, barrier or buoyancy components, and damage protection.
- Properties include flame-resistant, anti-static, military-grade, and recycled-content foam.
- Chemical and water-resistant
