Cross-Linked 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.
