Cross-linked polyethylene foam is a closed-cell foam characterized by a compact feel and resistance to water. There are two ways of cross linking, one is by linking agent, the other is by irradiation. Cross linking by irradiation has better surface than linking agent. Insulation pipe is consequently used extensively in air- conditioner, to decrease the heat transmission.
Compression molding , embossing , lamination and thermoforming are common fabricating methods used when creating components, packaging and products from closed-cell cross-linked polyethylene foams.These fabrication methods provide a unique finish that is aesthetically pleasing while still providing the necessary cushioning and support required.
If shape it into pipe, the foam need to be coiled by the machine.
CYG Technologies designs and fabricates custom packaging, components, and products utilizing closed-cell cross-linked polyethylene foams.
Closed-cell cross-linked polyethylene foams are commonly used in the following applications:
Construction-roof , flooring
Medical device packaging
Military grade tool control
Orthopedic soft goods
Athletic padding/helmet lining
Protective case inserts
Air conditioning insulating pipe,T-branch pipe
XPE/IXPE FOAM, with 33kg/m3, 3-10mm,
Thermal compounding with PE film
And post process by coiling
