Our polyethylene foam roll is a chemically cross-linked material that offers aesthetic appeal in addition to an outstanding range of performance characteristics. The smooth surface of this closed-cell foam offers excellent consistency, gauge control, superior physical and chemical properties and low water absorption and vapor transmission.

This versatile polyethylene foam can be used extensively in several applications. It functions as thermal insulation, pressure sensitive mounting tape, acoustic backing, package inserts, and grounding. It's also used in specialty products like table pads, running shoes, prosthetic devices, and EKG pads. It can also be used as a sound barrier in or on walls, ceilings or floors and is most effective when used as one component of a multi-layered construction scheme.

Closed cell foam sheet
Ted | March 19th, 2024
I was having issue with warm air going through the HVAC return then into my A/C ducts causing condensation and water puddling in the duct. Fearful of mold and other issues with standing water, I cut the 1/2” closed cell foam board slightly over the filter dimension and ‘sealed’ the opening till I start the system. So far it has done the trick. Fair price and good delivery options will make me a return customer
Very Happy
Gary | December 27th, 2022
I'm using the foam to cover a cracked dashboard, still working on the project, it appears to be exactly what I hoped for, firm, easy to work with. Would be good to warn customers to not use large spring clamps, they leave dents.
car cover
Bruce | November 25th, 2022
I've used this to make car seat cushions. Now, I'm making a hail proof car cover from this using 1/8inch thickness. Will cut into wide strips and weave thereby increasing effective thickness to greater than 1/4inch. Further I am taking the 1" thick cushions I previously bought and converting them for extra protection on car windows. joining with loops of parachute cord.. All will be painted with acrylic latex paint and sewn at seams with a embroidery needle. Then, I can get a cheap standard car cover for normal use and just put this on when storms come through.

Awesome product
Matthew Marinelli | December 28th, 2019
I was looking for a foam to insulate my boat compartment lids with. This foam is budget friendly and looks great. It's a bit more dense than you might suspect but nonetheless it does its job. This company is great. I will continue to do business with them
Great Price-Better Product
Trinity | December 26th, 2019
I was looking for foam to line my new tool box and do cutouts for tools. If you look online, the price for foam that is marketed for tool boxes is as such is 5 times this price! I ordered just what I needed, cut out the sizes I needed for each drawer and saved hundreds of dollars on this. It's a no brainer solution. On top of that shipping was crazy fast, the product cuts extremely well. I couldn't be more satisfied.
