The Difference Between XPE Foam And IXPE Foam

Apr 23, 2020

XPE foam: short for chemically cross-linked polyethylene foam. XPE foam uses the principle of chemical bridging to cross-link polyethylene; compared to IXPE foam, the surface of XPE foam is relatively rougher and the cells are larger. The production cost of XPE foam is lower. In the general application fields of sound insulation, shock absorption and thermal insulation requirements, XPE foam has a high cost performance. It is widely used in packaging lining, sports cushioning, shock absorption materials, and in building insulation , Building sound insulation and shock absorption, air conditioning and heat insulation are also widely used.
IXPE foam: short for radiation cross-linked polyethylene foam material. IXPE foam uses high-energy electrons to induce polyethylene cross-linking. The surface is smooth and smooth, and the cells are fine. The IXPE foam material with the same magnification has better mechanical properties than XPE foam material!
