What is ETHAFOAM 220?

What is ETHAFOAM 220?

ETHAFOAM™ 220 polyethylene foam is a durable, lightweight, flexible, solid extruded product. This process technology incorporates a patented CFC- and HCFC-free blowing agent system and an accelerated curing system that reduces residual blowing agents in ETHAFOAM products to trace amounts.

What is ETHAFOAM used for?

Sealed Air Ethafoam is a cushioning foam available in a wide variety of densities and thicknesses, designed to be used in packaging a wide range of fragile or sensitive equipment and objects.


Ethafoam® is a durable, flexible, closed-cell foam that is waterproof and chemical resistant with an excellent memory. It performs consistently through a wide range of temperatures. It is easily cut with knives, hot knives, band saws, powered foam rubber cutters, and table saws.

What is Ethafoam made of?

ETHAFOAM 180 is also reusable and completely recyclable because it is made of non-crosslinked polyethylene. ETHAFOAM™ 180 polyethylene foam has successfully passed FMVSS 302 flammability testing, conducted according to the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, CFR 49.

Is Ethafoam fire resistant?

It is a strong, resilient, medium-density 2.2 pcf (35.2 kg/m3), closed-cell foam that contains flame-retardant additives designed to meet the U.S. Federal Standard FAR 25.853 (a) and Airbus Directives ABD 0031. …

Is Ethafoam waterproof?

The closed-cell structure of Ethafoam makes it moisture resistant and impervious to most types of chemical, however, the density of the foam will affect whether it is waterproof or not. Higher density Ethafoam will achieve improved waterproof properties.

Is polyethylene foam fire retardant?

In fact, fire retardant crosslinked polyethylene foam are used in many seating and soft trim areas. Owing to the low-density closed cell nature of these foams. There are two grade fire retardant crosslinked polyethylene foam. The one is common fire retardant foam, another one is high fire retardant foam.

Is polyethylene foam flammable?

“Rigid polyurethane and polyisocyanurate foams will, when ignited, burn rapidly and produce intense heat, dense smoke and gases which are irritating, flammable and/or toxic. But the flammable polyurethane foam has been identified as a major contributory factor behind the scale of the disaster.”

What is the density of ethafoam 220 foam?

ETHAFOAM 220 is a strong, resilient, medium-density 2.2 pcf (35.2 kg/m3), closed-cell foam. It is ideally suited as a component material in products requiring a shock-absorbing, vibration-dampening, insulating and/or buoyancy component, and as a material for cushioning components in packaging applications for loadings up to 2.5 psi (17.5 kPa).

What’s the difference between Ethafoam 600 and 700?

Ethafoam 700 = 7.0 pcf. (Formally 6.0 pcf from Dow, known as Ethafoam 600). Ethafoam 900 = 9.0 pcf. Sheets and planks are not quite flat on the faces, tapering slightly at the two long edges.

What kind of material is Ethafoam rubber sheet made of?

ETHAFOAM 220 is a medium density, non cross linked Polyethylene (PE) closed cell foam that is capable of withstanding significant impacts and loadings. It is light weight, yet strong and resilient. Ideally suited as a component material in projects requiring some or all of these characteristics;

Who is the manufacturer of ethafoam foam planks?

Ethafoam is the brand name of polyethylene foam plank manufactured by Sealed Air Corporation (formally by Dow Chemical Company). It is a durable, flexible, closed-cell foam with excellent memory when used in an appropriate coverage and density for the load.
