  • Report Description
  • Summary

Polyolefin foams are composed of several materials that have been kneaded together. Typically it involves an organic blowing agent and a cross-linking agent. These come together to make the Polyolefin resin. It is created by thermally decomposing the foaming in a closed system. The major characteristic of these products is that they consist of nearly 100 percent closed-cell foam. They are lightweight and flexible, and offer excellent characteristics such as thermal insulation, impact resistance, thermal resistance, and flame resistance.

Compared to other materials, they are easier to cut, punch and press mold, and can also be processed in other ways. They also have a wide range of applications: automotive interior materials, medical, information technology related, construction underlayment materials, insulation and piping for air conditioning, materials for packaging or distribution, industrial insulation products, sports and leisure products, consumer goods, and medical care.
