Closed Cell Foams for Consumer Packaging, Components & Products
UFP Technologies is one of the largest fabricators of foams in North America. We have access to an array of closed-cell foams such as polyethylene and cross-linked polyethylene foams are commonly used for sports & leisure components, protective packaging and more.
Polyethylene foam is a durable, lightweight, resilient, closed-cell material. It is often used for packaging fragile goods due to its excellent vibration dampening and insulation properties. It also offers high resistance to chemicals and moisture.
Cross-linked polyethylene foam is characterized by a compact feel and resistance to water. It has many of the same properties as polyethylene foam but also has the ability to protect class "A" surfaces. UFP Technologies utilizes cross-linked polyethylene foams that are impregnated with nitrogen providing a non-toxic, hypoallergenic, latex-free solution that can come in direct contact with skin. These materials are used extensively when creating padding and other components sports & leisure equipment.
