With a focus on durability and longevity to last, our cross-linked polyethylene 6LB charcoal foam is a great solution for your next project. Made with a closed cell nature which makes it exceptionally high performing, this solution can be used for a wide range of applications.

As a chemically cross-linked foam, this solution is ideal for a wide range of projects or applications requiring a thicker, more durable foam. This cross-linked polyethylene 6LB charcoal is an extremely fine-celled foam with a smooth, pleasant feel combined with superior physical and chemical properties for an overall quality and performance that is unmatched. The higher density also means extra durability and protection against wear and tear. The color of the foam also helps to present a clean appearance that hides dirt. This foam can be used in several areas and applications which adds to its versatility and value. For instance, this solution can be used in commercial needs such as thermal insulation, construction expansion joints, and industrial gaskets, as well as for packaging and flotation equipment thanks to the low moisture permeability and high buoyancy of the material. Add this foam solution to your project today!

I use this primarily for theater props and costuming, and being able to select my thickness and/or density while still knowing what quality to expect is a huge plus! My one-stop-shop for foam supplies!
Great purchase

I use this foam primarily for costuming. It's great to work with, fairly durable and is a great price for the amount you get. Has virtually no imperfections and fast service with good clarity on the materials. Keep up the good work!
