Closed-Cell Polyethylene Foam

Arrow right

A unique range

Expertly developed

Our innovative ZOUCH eFoam range features some of the most diverse, high-quality foams available today – low-cost, lightweight, high-performance materials we’re proud to produce. They’re robust, closed-cell polyethylene foams made using physical manufacture (IXPE) and chemical cross linking (XLPE), all available in extruded rolls or blocks (buns).

Our eFoams are used in a growing range of sectors, including high-contact sports, protective packaging, automotive components, construction, healthcare, military and marine. They offer real advantages over traditional rubber or sponge materials like EPDM and neoprene, with a high strength-to- weight ratio, attractive aesthetics and low odour.

The range includes ethylene co-polymer, conductive and static dissipative foams, as well as flame retardant and antibacterial grades, in a range of densities, colours and sizes. Each one is non-toxic, thermally insulating and resistant to UV, moisture and chemicals. We also produce bespoke grades for demanding conditions, from aerospace to electronics storage.

Whatever you’d like to achieve, our expert team can work with you to design and develop products and components, choosing and using the very best materials for the job. We can split, saw, rout, die cut, water-jet cut, butt-weld, laminate, adhere, thermoform or compression mould all of our foams to create even the most complex shapes and sizes, so talk to us about your latest challenge.
