Physically Crosslinked Polyethylene Foam

Physically crosslinked polyethylene foam, also named IXPE foam. Physically crosslinked polyethylene foam that can be produced with advanced technology, have superior mechanical properties and an advanced dimensional stability.

The product is extruded with the help of additives which is followed by the electron beam process. After the electron beam process with hot oven operation the physical characteristic of the product increases by means of dilatation, and a product with a very closed-cell structure and a smooth surface is obtained. It can be produced for different sectors in cut plate, roll, tube, extra-laminated or non-laminated forms.
