Reasons Why Polyethylene Products Always Win

November 28, 2016

Polyethylene foam is the best known material when it comes to increased flexibility and resilience to rapid wear and tear. This makes it more useful in crafting products with improved flexibility such as screening splines as well as backer rods. Foam products are also known for high versatility derived from the use of highly stable chemical formulation in the polyethylene monomers. Some of the definite benefits of polyethylene foam include:

Light weight: There are specific applications where the weight of the materials is critical in defining their ability to serve the interest of the consumers. For example, window shutters need to be light in weight to avoid breaking the hinges. As a result, the use of high density foam products in sealing the gaps between the screen and the metallic frame is advised. These features come together in polyethylene foam.

Non-dusting and superior shock absorption: Polyethylene is best known to offer high resistance to dust. Compared to regular rubber and plastics, polyethylene foam offers a superior service as well as shock abruption. As a result, its use in areas likely to experience high shock is advised. 

Excellent buoyancy: In addition to being lightweight and highly durable, polyethylene products are also highly buoyant. They easily float on water and with the support of the right media can be used in a diversity of industries where buoyancy is a necessity.    

Resistance to corrosion and rotting: Polyethylene products are also best known for their high resistance to corrosion and rotting. With their chemical structure being impervious to air, mildew and mold, they do not rot easily, even when left in stagnant water.

Alcot-crafted polyethylene products are highly stable and confer excellent chemical and physical formulations. Our technicians always ensure that the processing of the end products is done within a highly controlled framework. As a result, we craft high quality products that meet and even exceed the industry standards.
