Cross-Linked PE Foam
Chemically or Physically Cross-linked Polyethylene Rubber
Chemically or Physically Cross-Linked PE foam is a modified foam developed by mixing PE foam with multiple substances in the boiling phase or recompressing it under controlled heat and force in order to create a more dense and strong foam though with the same thickness as the primary PE.

Cross-Linked PE Foam Comprehensive Guide and Applications
The Making Procedure and comprehensive information regarding Cross-Linked PE Foam:
It starts with the manufacturing process of PE foam. The procedure splits into two different cross-linking methods based on the needs of the costumers that whether they have preference of implementing non-toxic but lower density foam product (still higher than the normal PE), or the chemically cross-linked foam which offers the highest densities possible among all foam or rubber types though at the cost of the product being unhealthy and noxious for almost all living beings.
In the physically cross-linking procedure, the finalized PE foam sheet is pressurized again before cooling under heat and constant pressing which causes foam molecules to be compressed closer to each other. The procedure reduces the thickness of the product though it is becoming denser than the normal manufactured PE foam with the same dimensions.
The chemically cross-linking procedure does not affect the thickness of the product. Instead, it will fill the gaps between the molecules of polyethylene making it denser than ever but keeping the weight and dimensions the same. The additive for cross-linking process is Vinyl Acetate. This substance is highly relatable and makes the product softer, stronger and denser.
In comparison with many other foams, Cross-Linked PE is less affordable. The reason is firstly the difficult and highly professional manufacturing process and secondly the density of the products that is higher than the same ranks in the other foam types like EVA, NBR or EPDM.
Most effective applications and Implementations of cross-linked PE foam:
• Office or Home Appliances
• Military and Defense
• Electronics Devices (Chemically Cross-Linked)
• Sports and Protective Pads
• Potting and Packaging (Chemically Cross-Linked)
• Medical Purposes
• Oil and Petroleum Industry (Chemically Cross-Linked)
The diversity in the applications of cross-linked PE foam makes it favorable by many industries including military, mechanical and civil engineering, electrical purposes, healthcare and medical intentions and the oil industry where the origin of foam products roots there.
