IXPE foam is cross linked by electron beam technology. The polyethylene is heated and foamed to 5 to 40 times to form a high-performance foam.
IXPE foam has a nearly 100% closed cell structure and it is light weight.
Various processes such as cutting, stamping, and pressure forming can be easily realized. It is widely used in various fields such as automotive interior materials, building base materials, air-conditioning insulation materials to pipeline materials, packaging/logistics industry, insulation industry, sports/daily goods, medical, etc.,
☆ Excellent properties
☆ heat insulation
☆ moisture proof
☆ eco friendly
☆ heat resistance
☆ flame retardant
☆ Soft surface
☆ Shock absorption
IXPE foam has many of the same characteristics as polyethylene foam, and can improve its profile by protecting the surface of Class A, so it is the ideal material in the packaging & cushion products and medical & care products.
Cross-linked polyethylene foam and some of its most common applications:
IXPE foam performs well commercially as industrial gaskets, thermal insulation materials, construction expansion joints, floor underlay and automotive interior.
As mentioned earlier, due to its high buoyancy and low moisture permeability, cross-linked polyethylene foam is also commonly used in the packaging industry and water floating mats.
Common applications of cross-linked polyethylene foam include:
☆ Construction and engineering industry of water pipe cover, floor underlayment
☆ Thermal insulation industry of roof insulation, air conditioner insulation pipe, pipe insulation
☆ Packaging and cushion industry of fruit foam tray, packaging foam insert, protective pads and artifacts protective packaging solutions.
☆ Medical and care industry of dental disposable foam tray, ECG pad, wound dressing, prosthetic pads, orthopedic pads, suture counters and wheelchair pads
☆ Automotive interior industry of automobile shockproof pads, waterproof door panel, headrest, car door handrail, car sun visor, sealing tape and marine bumpers and buoys, and gaskets.
☆ Sports and leisure industry of body armor, personal boat seats, backpack & shoulder straps, yoga mat, outdoor mat, baby play mat, foam decoy for hunting.
The main characteristics of cross-linked polyethylene foam
Cross-linked polyethylene foam is also called Volara, Microcell, Zotefoam, XLPE foam, PE foam, LDPE foam, IXPE foam and XPE foam.
