What is polyethylene foam?

Polyethylene foam is a lightweight, resilient closed-cell foam that is made from polymers derived from ethylene gas. It is often referred to as PE or poly, and it’s known for its durability and versatility. Unlike other foams, polyethylene foam does not easily absorb water, making it an ideal material for applications exposed to moisture or humidity. It has excellent insulation properties, making it perfect for use in packaging and construction projects.

What are the benefits of using polyethylene foam?

Now that you know a bit more about our business and what exactly polyethylene foam is, let’s explore some of polyethylene foam's core benefits. The advantages of using polyethylene foam are numerous; below are just a few:


Polyethylene foam offers superior strength and resilience, which makes it much more durable than other materials like styrofoam or paperboard. This means that your products will stay safe and secure during shipping, even if they experience impact or shock.

Environmentally friendly:

Polyethylene is recyclable and reusable, so you don’t have to worry about producing waste when using this material. In addition, since PE doesn’t absorb water or retain moisture, it won’t contribute to mold growth or damage from humidity. This makes it much safer for the environment than traditional materials like styrofoam or cardboard.

Easy to work with:

Because of its light weight and flexibility, polyethylene foam can be molded into virtually any shape you need for your product packaging or construction project. It’s also easy to cut and shape into whatever size you need without compromising its strength or integrity.


Not only does PE foam have superior strength compared to other materials like styrofoam or cardboard, but it also costs less in the long run because you don’t have to replace damaged components as often as with other materials. Additionally, since it’s lightweight yet strong enough to hold products securely in place during shipping and storage, you save money on fuel costs associated with transporting goods over long distances.
