Cross-Linked Polyolefin Foam – XLPE

XLPE is chemically crosslinked Polyolefin foam is extremely fine closed cells foam and smooth skins on both sides. It is light in weight, flexible, soft in touch, strong and tough in physical properties, resilient and resistant to moisture, chemicals and extreme temperature. It typically offers superior thermal stability and insulating properties improved dimensional consistency and stability over a wide range of fabrication methods and end-user’s conditions. It is easy to work in fabricating and thermoforming. XLPE foams work well in the building and construction industry where thermal insulation, sound and vibration are critical, due to its low moisture permeability and high buoyancy.
