Foam Sales' Polyethylene (PE) Foam Sheets are available in three types - Soft, Firm, and Hard. In each case the sheet hardness is a function of the PE product density - so the Soft sheet is the lightest, and the Hard sheet the heaviest.
For most industrial and construction uses (eg., expansion joint foam) the Soft PE sheet is suitable. The Firm and Hard sheets are generally for specialist purposes.
All Foam Sales' Polyethylene Sheets are nominally 2m x 1m in size (usually just slightly bigger). Each hardness is available in sheets cut to thickness as listed. Blocks of up to 100mm and more in thickness (eg. for marine buoyancy), are available in medium firm and firm densities on request.
The chemically cross linked and closed cell structure of PE foam makes it stable, impermeable to water and moisture-intrusion, to fungi, bacteria, and to air. Featuring high thermal resistance, it is light in weight, flexible and compressible, and has moderate to good recovery after long-term compression.
Polyethylene is an industrial foam used commercially, in construction, and also in domestic applications. PE's uses include impact absorption and protection, vibration dampening, load deflection, expansion joints in concrete, seals and gaskets, thermal and sound insulation, and marine buoyancy and flotation.
PE sheet is also used in spa covers, camping mats, sports and exercise mats, yoga blocks, boat fenders and high impact, waterproof seating.
It is competitive with rubber and vinyl in many applications. Polyethylene can be moulded for use in sandals and shoes, gloves, helmets and sports products for comfort and protection.

If you don't require a full sheet, we can Cut-to-Size to suit your requirements.
