What is IXPE foam sheet?


IXPE (Irradiation crosslinked polyethylene foam): radiation crosslinked polyethylene foam sheet. This product is extruded polyethylene or modified polyethylene and various fillers, crosslinked by electron accelerator radiation. By high temperature foaming to obtain high Molecular foam material.

It has smooth surface, closed cells, fine and uniform, non-absorbent, environmentally friendly. Also it has good mechanical properties, excellent thermal insulation and sound insulation properties. 

It's easy secondary processing and molding, and can give it good flame retardant properties. 

The flexible foam is widely used in daily department stores such as automotive interiors, sports and leisure, travel supplies, children's toys, health care and packaging, refrigeration, construction, and decoration.



Advantages of IXPE foam


XPE has good performance of waterproof, moisture-proof, insulation, buffering, resilience, heat preservation, heat insulation, weather resistance, aging resistance, corrosion resistance, light weight, easy processing and molding.


Applications of IXPE foam


1.Car soft interior :

IXPE Foam (Radiation cross-linked polyethylene foam) has the characteristics of light weight, moisture resistance, sound insulation, heat insulation, etc.

At present, it has been widely used in the vehicle and ship manufacturing industry. Mainly used as lining decoration of vehicles and ships, cushions, foot pads, truck sleeping pads and other buffer materials and instrument thermal insulation and shock absorption materials.


2.Building materials

IXPE Foam (Radiation cross-linked polyethylene foam) has the characteristics of low thermal conductivity, low water absorption, good waterproof and sound insulation performance, etc.

 It can be used as sound insulation, shock absorption, heat insulation and anti-seepage material for roofs, walls, foundations, etc.; As a floor underlay, foam plastic can greatly reduce the mutual transmission of sound on the upper and lower floors of a multi-storey building. 

Its soft texture, aging resistance, impermeability and other properties can also be used to fill the joints of two uneven surfaces. 

It can also be used as a light-weight structural material for subway tunnels, house walls, and a sealing filling material for joints of doors and windows.

Covering the cured cement with polyethylene foam sheets can prevent the loss of heat and moisture and promote the curing of the cement. The pipe network of the central air conditioner can be managed with polyethylene foam as a thermal insulation material.


3.Thermal insulation field

IXPE Foam (Radiation cross-linked polyethylene foam) has the characteristics of insulation, heat preservation, corrosion resistance and weather resistance, so it can be used in many equipment with high sealing requirements, used for thermal insulation, anticorrosion, air conditioning, refrigerators of oil and gas pipelines such as petroleum and chemical industries. , cold storage thermal insulation materials and various adhesive tape projects.


4.Sports and leisure

IXPE has the characteristics of light texture, low water absorption, good floatability, etc. It is especially suitable for making water sports equipment, such as wakeboards, surfboards, swimming mats, anti-sinking mats, life-saving vests, lifebuoys and other water sports products. It can be used to make fighting protective clothing, boxing gloves, protective caps, sports shoes and camping pads by using its characteristics of absorbing impact energy.

IXPE has a smooth surface and different densities, and can be cut, formed, printed, compounded, and pasted. It can be used to make children's intellectual toys, sports cushions and many soft toys.


5.Buffer packaging

IXPE has physical properties such as light weight, soft texture, easy separation, molding, and can be made into various shapes, and has functions such as shock absorption and anti-static. It can be used as an anti-static packaging lining material for household appliances, precision instruments, and valuables. , and can also be used as preservative packaging for fruits.

 

Processing Methods of IXPE  FOAM


  • Hot press molding: place the baked material in a mold of a certain shape, hot press, and cool to shape.

  • Blister molding: heat the mold, then put the sheet or coil material into the mold, evacuate the air, and cool to shape.

  • Thermal bonding process: The materials of different materials are heated and compounded with IXPE.

  • Punching process: punch the material into the shape required by the customer through hydraulic punching machine, CNC engraving machine, etc.

  • Lamination process: use PE (polyethylene) as the medium to compound different materials with IXPE

  • Embossing process: the IXPE is pressed out of the pattern through the roller


Who we are ?


Parkway Foam is a leading foam production and processing factory, we can provide a variety of foam products, such as EVA foam, PE foam, neoprene foam, EPDM foam and NBR foam.

At the same time, we have advanced processing capabilities to convert foam into the products you need.



What kinds of foam materials we can supply ?

We can supply :EVA foam, PE foam, XPE foam, IXPE foam, CR foam, EPDM foam, Neoprene foam, SBR foam, NBR foam, Micro-cell soft PVC foam. All of them we can supply in sheet and roll.



What's the processing capacity we have ?


1. Cutting - cutting the size as per client’s request

2. Slicing - Slicing the thickness as per client’s request

3. Lamination - hot melt film lamination, flame lamination, and pressure-sensitive adhesive lamination

4. Laser Vibrator - New type cutting machine, can cut the foam drawing without open molds

5. Die cutting - Open molds as per your design then at first, use die cutting machine to produce, it’s quicker than laser vibrator.

6. Compression Molding - Compression molding is a process we utilizes for the manufacturing of three-dimensional molded foam and foam composite parts. It is an ideal process for making parts that have intricate features, require very defined part geometry, have varying wall thicknesses or need to be held to critical dimensional tolerances.

7. Engraving machine - Usually to make tool box insert and packing insert as per client’s requests.

8. Silk-screen printing - Print logos and patterns on the surface of foam products

9. Adhesive backing - Gluing on the surface of the foam with liners. Usually produce foam tapes and other products need to stick on.
