At its core, a material's strength is derived from the bonds that hold it together on a molecular level. In the world of plastics and foams, it's polymers chains of repeating molecular units that are bonded together to form the material. The strength of these bonds, known as a cross-link, is reflected in the strength of the material itself, with its ability to stretch, bear loads or return to shape after pressure is applied. Polymer is also where the names of many foam types are derived from, such as polyurethane and polyethylene.
This is closed cell polyethylene foam has been chemically cross linked. It combines a smooth aesthetic feel with superior physical and chemical properties than standard polyethylene foam. This foam is available in a wide range of densities and is available in over 40 different colors. It is available in anti-static, conductive, and fire retardant formulations.
This foam can be water-jet cut, cnc routed, laminated, thermoformed, and pressure-formed.
