Cross Linked Polyethylene - 2LB
- Chemically Cross Linked Foam is an extremely fine-celled foam, ideal for projects and applications that require thicker foam. With a smooth, pleasant feel combined with superior physical and chemical properties, Cross Linked Polyethylene Foam is the solution for an array of applications that demand thicker sections of closed-cell foam. With its closed-cell density, Cross Linked Polyethylene Foam works well commercially as thermal insulation, construction expansion joints and industrial gaskets. It is also used as packaging and in flotation equipment, with its low moisture permeability and high buoyancy.
Cross Linked Polyethylene Foam 2LB Density is accepted for use in U.S. Coast Guard* approved devices. This acceptance is for materials 1/2 to 3 inches thick.
White and black are available in all sheet sizes. The colors blue, green, purple, red and yellow are available in full sheets only.
