Chemically Cross-Linked Polyethylene Foam is a polyethylene foam material. And that is expanded in heat oven after extruded with the help of chemical inflators and cross linking agents that are put inside. It has advanced chemical and mechanical features thanks to its cross-linked structure Compared to physically Cross-Linked Polyethylene Foam the cell structure is larger and the surface is not as smooth. It can be used in many areas that sound, heat, humidity insulation and shock protection is intended. As well as for different sectors as cut plate, roll, tube, extra-laminated or non-laminated.
Physically cross-linked polyethylene foam that can be produced with advanced technology. And it have superior mechanical properties and an advanced dimensional stability. The product is extruded with the help of additives and lasteners 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. In fact, it can be produced for different sectors in cut plate, roll, tube, extra-laminated or non-laminated forms.
What Is the Difference in XLPE Foam & IXPE Foam
In a comparison of “like-for-like” foam densities, chemically cross-linked foams generally have larger cells and significantly rougher surfaces than do physically cross-linked foams.
