The EPE Foam Difference

Resilience, Impact, and Energy Management—Air in Our Beads Solve Your Packaging Needs.

EPE foams withstand repeated dynamic impact, resulting in very little change to the material’s original shape. The foam absorbs energy and handles significant static loads before returning to nearly 100% of its original shape. Since the foam is isotropic, it can withstand hundreds of impacts from all angles while protecting the product it is cushioning.

EPE is available in a variety of densities including 1.3, 1.5, 1.9, 2.3, 2.8, and 4.6 pcf, 6″ thickness.

EPE closed-cell polyethylene foam is tough, very flexible, and resilient when twisting and bending!


Lightweight and Cost-Efficient

  • LLDPE resin base and spherical bead shape is ideal for managing shock, impact, and vibration
  • High strength-to-weight ratio allows less of the material to be used in design, packaging, and shipping
  • Lower cube size shipping costs saves on energy and fuel consumption while also maximizing storage space

Thermal Insulation

  • Maintains properties over a wide range of temperatures
  • Provides durable and re-usable thermal insulation without losing R-value over time
  • Offers excellent cold weather impact performance
  • Service temperature range from -76°F (-60°C) to 160°F (70°C)

Chemical Resistance

  • As a chemically inert substance, EPE foams are virtually unaffected when exposed to most chemicals, oil and grease, petroleum, water and moisture
  • Anti-microbial material will not harbor mold and bacterial growth

Environmentally Friendly

  • 100% recyclable and up to 15% recycled content
  • “Ozone Safe,” meet RoHS requirements, NAFTA compliant
  • Can be made into other industrial products
  • Much lower carbon footprint when compared to other foams such as crosslink PE which cannot be recycled
