What is Cross-linked polyethylene foam?
It is a closed-cell foam featured by shock absorption, thermal insulation and resistance to water.
As it is foamed by polyethylene, so cross-linked polyethylene foam has many of the same properties as polyethylene foam but also has the ability to protect class "A" surfaces and is consequently used extensively in the packaging of medical products and equipment.
Closed-cell cross-linked polyethylene foams are commonly used in the following applications:
Medical device packaging
Military-grade tool control
Orthopedic soft goods
Athletic padding/helmet lining
Protective case inserts
