Ideal for a range of projects which require a thicker foam, Minicel L200 foam is an extremely fine-celled material that offers incredible durability thanks to this fact. Minicel L200 is similar to our general crosslinked polyethylene foam, but this product has a higher physical consistency and more uniform appearance thanks to the Minicel brand. Made to create an end result of a foam that is smooth and consistent in surface while offering superior physical and chemical properties, Minicel L200 is the answer for a range of tasks that place considerable demands on foam. With a durable nature thanks to the closed cell design and overall density, Minicel L200 foam is exceptionally suited to commercial applications such as thermal insulation, industrial gaskets, or organizational inserts for tool chests and carrying cases. Another great benefit of this durable and reliable foam is that it has low moisture permeability and high buoyancy. This means Minicel L200 can be used in multiple marine applications as well, from flotation equipment, to custom seating and padding in kayaks.
Minicel Type L's technical name is chemically crosslinked polyethylene.
