T Foam – Our Chemically Cross-Linked Polyethylene Foam
We use the letter T to designate our chemically cross-linked polyethylene foam. Our T foam is produced in continuous rolls resulting in a finished product with uniform closed cells. T is also available in sheets.
T foam is lightweight, flexible, and soft to the touch. However, it is strong, resilient, and resistant to moisture, many chemicals, and temperature extremes.
Compared to non-cross-linked polyethylene foam, T foam typically offers superior thermal stability and insulating properties. It also offers improved dimensional consistency and stability over a wide range of fabrication methods and end-use conditions.
The following additives are available: PE film, EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate – to enhance softness or elongation), flame retardants, and fine cell structure.
Before placing an order, please consider the following specifications for our T foam:
- Densities range from 2.0 lbs pcf (pounds per cubic feet) and extends to 30.0 lbs pcf. We designate 2.0 lbs pcf as T-20; 3.0 lbs pcf as T-30, etc..
- Thicknesses of rolls/sheets range from 1/8″ to 4″ laminated.
- Widths of rolls/sheets vary from our standard 60″ to as wide as 78″.
- Lengths of rolls/sheets range from 10 ft to 2,000 ft.
- Colors are classified into two categories: standard and custom. The standard colors are natural (the color of vanilla ice cream), gray and black. Custom colors are available for an additional fee.
- Additives such as PE film are designated by the letter F which follows the T foam name to be called TF. The letter E is designated for EVA (i.e., TE). The additive for flame retardant is designated as FR (i.e., TFR) and fine cell structure is called FIN (i.e., TFIN).
- For smooth surfaces, we call a single-sided smooth surface, SM (i.e., TSM), and a double-sided smooth surface, SSM (i.e., TSSM).
