Closed Cell Foams for Industrial Applications

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 that are commonly used for industrial safety components, protective packaging, case inserts 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.
