Volara Type 2A
For industrial and commercial applications, look no further than our Volara Type 2A foam. It is a general purpose cross-linked LDPE foam with an excellent chemical resistance. Foam of this variety is often used in construction gap filler, industrial gaskets, custom packaging, flooring underlay, and bottle cap liners, as it contains FDA compliant materials acceptable for food contact. Because of its fine cellular structure, Type 2A foam can be compression molded and will thermoform. Finally, Type 2A is an option for double and single coated PSA foam systems.
Volara Type 2A's technical name is irradiation cross-linked polyolefin polyethylene foam.
