If you need a product manufacturing that can take a beating, absorb sound, or keep the heat in or out, laminated PE foam is the perfect material for you.
Laminated polyethylene foam takes anything you throw at it. Polyethylene, or closed cell, is a strong and resilient material with excellent shock absorption abilities. Its chemical cross lining makes it rigid enough to be used in many ways without showing any wear or tear over time. Laminating the PE foam together creates endless options for thickness, colour, and density.
What is laminated polyethylene foam used for?
Laminated PE foam is used in a variety of applications, including packaging, construction, and automotive. It is prized for its durability, strength, and resistance to moisture. Laminated foam can also be printed on and die-cut into shapes, making it a versatile material for a wide range of projects.

How thick is PE foam?
Our PE foam ranges from 5mm to 50mm, depending on its use. Our foam pool covers between 5-8mm, whereas you can find gym flooring from 10mm – 50mm. Our R&D team works with you to find the right thickness. You wouldn’t want to watch your pool cover sink.
Is PE Foam waterproof?
All PE foam is moisture resistant and non-absorbent. However, to fully waterproof PE foam, we use higher-density sheets and laminate them.

What is the difference between polyethene and polyurethane foam?
The main difference is shock absorption and crash protection.
If you want to land on your feet or hands, choose polyethylene. Being thrown to the floor? Choose polyurethane.
- Firm, closed-cell foam
- Rebounds to original shape quickly
- Repels shock energy with a “bounce”
- Great for landing on your feet or hands (like dancing)
- Soft, open-cell foam
- Not as quick to rebound
- Distributes shock energy broadly
- Great for landing on your body (like wrestling)
In some cases, both foam types are mixed into one product. It’s great for martial arts venues that want users to stay on their feet but may be thrown to the ground every now and again.
