When you need a foam solution that is shaped the way you need it for the project or purpose, our Polyethylene Cylinders are the ideal solution. Made to be durable and easy to implement, these foam solutions are a high-quality option for a range of projects.

Closed-cell polyethylene cylinders come in a range of diameters and lengths appropriate for applications from insulating and weather stripping to "noodle" swimming toys at the pool or beach. These cylinders are widely used in masonry and concrete work as a backer rod to fill gaps between slabs before applying filler, saving time and materials. In larger sizes, they can also be used in crafts or as padding or cushioning in unique pillows. Since polyethylene foam is a smooth, closed-cell foam, these cylinders are resistant to moisture or water retention. The larger cylinders are excellent for buoyancy applications as well.

Custom Cutting is Available!
We can cut custom sizes of polyethylene cylinders to meet the exact needs of your application or project. Our team would be happy to custom create the right outcome for you today. Please Contact Us for details.

5 inch diameter cylinder

Exactly the foam I needed for my bobbin lace pillows! Holds its shape when squished and dense enough to keep all the straight pins from moving.
great item
