About Closed-Cell Foam
Polyethylene closed cell foams are solid (rather
than liquid) that are manufactured from a variety of plastic
compounds to which foaming agents have been added. During manufacture,
the foaming agents cause bubbles of gas to form inside the foam.
In open-celled foams, such as sponges or mattress foam, these
bubbles (or cells) of air are open, allowing liquids and air
to be freely taken up into the foam. In contrast, closed-cell
foams have closed bubbles which do not allow air or liquids
to be taken up.
This allows closed cell foams to have excellent insulated and
cushioning properties. As well as outstanding strength, buoyancy,
chemical and UV resistance qualities. Making closed cell foam
ideal for applications requiring padding, floatation, insulation,
space filling, cushioning, anti-vibration and noise dampening.
3H foams are supplied as rolls, sheets or blocks
in various sizes and colours. There are two main formulations:
N-series, a plain polyethylene (PE) compound; and WB a (PE/EVA)
Blend. Both types of foam can be supplied in a range of densities
from 25 kg/m3 (soft) to 100 kg/m3 (hard).
