Expanded Polyethylene (EPE) Foam Insert

Custom molded polyethylene (EPE) foam inserts provide excellent protection against damage due to their high shock-absorbent characteristics. EPE, a thermoplastic material, is fully recyclable and can be easily reheated and reshaped.

Why use it

  • Lightweight and recyclable.
  • Shock absorbent material.
  • Low compression creep
  • Fairly non-abrasive
  • High resistance to heat
  • Resistant to moisture, mold, and mildew

Why not use it

  • Susceptible to degradation from continuous exposure to UV rays

Polyethylene foam, also known as expanded polyethylene (EPE), is a thermoplastic material that is both lightweight and durable. It is made up of millions of tiny bubbles that provide high strength and rigidity, making it ideal for packaging a wide range of products. EPE is highly effective in absorbing shocks and can hold different kinds of items, ranging from heavy industrial materials to small and fragile items. Additionally, EPE is fully recyclable and can be melted and reshaped for other purposes beyond product packaging. Our polyethylene foam inserts are available in various densities and colors to suit your needs.
