Polyethylene Foams, often referred to as EVA Micro-cellular cross-linked Polyethylene Foam, PEX chemically cross-linked Polyethylene Foam, cross-linked Polyethylene Foam, are strong resilient closed-cell foams.
Polyethylene foam tapes have a high immediate bond strength along with a low compression set and are considered easy to die-cut. There are various grades of Polyethylene foam tapes with rubber, acrylic, and removable adhesive systems available in various thicknesses and release liners [i.e. paper or film].
Polyethylene foam tapes are recommended for irregular surfaces that require conformability to uneven surfaces, cushioning, and vibration dampening. Typical applications are for mounting, signage, extrusions, wire mounts, gaskets, window fabrication, and appliances.
