Cross Linked Polyethylene - 2LB - Colors
Crosslinked Polyethylene foam is ideal for a variety of projects and applications that require thicker foam. It is a fine-celled foam that is smooth to the touch. As a closed-cell material, our 2lb Crosslinked Polyethylene foam is great for commercial applications, such as thermal insulation, construction expansion joints, and industrial gaskets. Low moisture permeability and high buoyancy also make this foam an exemplary option for packaging to protect products and as flotation equipment.
Since white and charcoal colors are more common choices, they are available in all sheet sizes. Our other colors, light green, light purple, light red, and yellow, are available in full sheets only.
Custom Cutting is Available!
If the size you are looking for varies from the standard sheets that we offer, we can also cut custom sized Crosslinked Polyethylene foam for any project. Please Contact Us for details.
