There is a wide range of polyethylene foams on the market and we stock a number of these different grades to give our customers a wide choice and to be able to use the right foam for the right purpose. Polyethylene foams are typically about 28kg in density and therefore lend themselves very well to be used to provide good protection for all types of items especially larger & heavier items.
These types of foam come in varying thicknesses ie 25mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, 100mm & 120mm. From these nominal thicknesses we are able to cut down or laminate up to infinite thicknesses….within reason! All of these foams are supplied in sheet form for example 2m x 1m or 2m x 1.2m.
Polyethylene foams are very good to work with and can be die cut, welded, glued or even routed.
We stock pink anti-static Stratocell, Jiffy foam, Polylam, Ethafoam & Plastazote. Plastazote is available in a wide range of grades and we are able to supply any of these, but typically we have plentiful stocks of LD18, LD29, LD45 & LD24FR. We are also the appointed UK distributor for Neopolen, which is an excellent beaded polyethylene foam made by BASF in Germany.
Here at Wessex Packaging we are continually focusing on producing innovative products without compromising on functionality and quality.
Our latest packaging idea demonstrates this, using an industry leading technique for lining a carton with foam. The foam’s flexibility ensures the product is protected and insulated to the highest standard.
The foam is efficient to produce and can be cut to fit various sizes and shapes.
Since it only involves one piece of die cut foam waste materials are significantly reduced in comparison to other packaging methods. Better yet, this makes it extremely easy to assemble and install, helping to save both time and money during the manufacturing process; savings which are passed on to you.
