Building and Construction

The construction industry relies heavily on the numerous benefits offered by polyethylene foam. In the fields of insulation, sealing and cushioning, we supply products in roll, tape, gasket or seal formats. Additives added to standard grades of polyethylene foam allow them to meet more stringent test requirements, which are available in areas of:

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

From 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.

Ramfoam supplies 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, our foams have assisted in the development of multiple technologies within the construction industry.
