Sustainable PE foam materials

We can now offer sustainable PE foam materials as well as conventional PE foam materials. On account of their closed cellular structure, sustainable and conventional PE foam materials are used in exactly the same way for absorbing sound, insulating, and sealing as well as in packaging applications.

The sustainable alternatives likewise boast properties such as low density, outstanding resistance to ageing and weathering, good sound and heat insulation, plus very good resistance to commercially available acids, alkalis, and other chemicals.

Sustainable PE foam materials are primarily used in packaging and to protect goods in transport as well as in industrial and technical applications, where they serve as seals or sound and thermal insulation. In automotive engineering, for example, they are found in door interiors, engines, and headlining.

Please take a look at the following product examples for an initial overview of the possibilities when it comes to sustainable PE foam materials.

Sustainable PE foam based on recycled material

• Highly elastic, closed-cell foam made of expanded polyethylene (EPE)
• Produced responsibly using 25% recycled material
• Can be disposed of sustainably: the material is 100% recyclable
• Free of chemicals and volatile organic compounds

Sustainable PE foam based on organic material

Green PE foam:
• Closed-cell, cross-linked PE foam
• Density of 37 kg/cbm
• Based on 100% renewable raw materials

Anthracite-coloured PE foam:
• Non-cross-linked PE foam
• Density of 28 kg/cbm
