What is Cross-Linked Polyethylene Foam?

Cross-linked Polyethylene foam is a water resistant, closed cell foam that has a smooth feel. Its ability to be thermoformed or compression molded allow it to be an ideal material for a wide variety of products.  Cross-linked polyethylene is resilient, extremely buoyant and is great for shock absorption.  Common uses of cross-linked polyethylene include medical device packaging, padding, and insulators with a need for water resistance.
