Expanded Polyethylene (EPE)

Expanded Polyethylene (EPE) is a closed cell flexible foam well known for:

  • Smooth appearance
  • Chemical resistance
  • Strength and flexibility with excellent cushioning properties
  • Low permanent set
  • Non abrasive and minimal water absorption

EPE is commonly used for sports equipment, water sports floatation, packaging and automotive applications.

EPE beads produce a very flexible closed-cell foam which offers a high degree of resiliency. This material can withstand repetitive deformations and still maintain its dimensions and cushioning ability.
