The Rubber Company supply and manufacture polyethylene in a variety of colours and formats. Polyethylene is a closed cell foam, also referred to as a PE foam or LDPE foam. The material starts off as a thermoplastic which is then blown into a foam format. This is a highly durable as well as versatile product.
The high compression rates that polyethylene offers enable it to maintain its resilience under repeated impact. It also gives the material excellent load bearing characteristics. The incredible versatility of this product enables you to use it in almost all applications. However, our customers often use it as; packaging, case inserts, flotation, flooring and acoustic underlay, camping mats to name but a few. The soft nature of the material makes it particularly useful in packaging applications as it is able to absorb impacts without damaging the contents of the package.
The Rubber Companies production facilities are able to convert polyethylene into a variety of formats to suit your specific requirements. We commonly get requests for polyethylene in: sheets, rolls, strips, gaskets as well as seals. We can also produce this material either plain or adhesive backed for easy installation. The polyethylene we offer is available in four densities, 18, 24, 33 and 45kg/m3. Each density has its own values so be sure to check our material spec sheet in order to ensure you get the right density for your specific requirements.
