Building and Construction

The construction industry relies heavily on the numerous benefits that Polyethylene foam offers. In the fields of Insulation, Sealing and Cushioning, we supply products in roll, tape, gasket or seal formats.

Additives to standard grades of polyethylene foam in order to meet more stringent test requirements are available in areas of:

  • Flammability (DIN 4102 B1/B2)
  • High UV Resistance
  • Superior Compression/Tension characteristics
  • Thermal absorption
  • Sound absorption

Whether you require an expansion joint for a car park, a gap filler for concrete, a ridge filler for the roof, a sprung floor foam loader or a curing blanket, polyethylene foam is the versatile material of choice.

We supply foams with or without self adhesive and they can easily be used as a substrate for combining and laminating with other materials to offer enhanced properties.

Globally you will find from a basic application through to a composite part of a technical construction solution our foams have assisted in the development of new and innovative technologies within the construction industry.
