XPE is a chemically cross-linked polyethylene foam material, which is made of low-density polyethylene resin plus cross-linking agent and foaming agent through high-temperature continuous foaming. Compared with EPE (physical foamed polyethylene, commonly known as pearl cotton), The tensile strength is higher and the cells are finer. Compared with other PE or non-PE materials, XPE material has excellent performance in durability, resistance to light, and resistance to physical impact. XPE itself is chemically stable, not easy to decompose, odorless, and has good elasticity. It is a preferred material for manufacturing crawling mats, sound insulation layers, heat insulation layers, and car mats.
XPE is an ideal material for heat preservation of automobiles and air conditioners. In recent years, it has developed rapidly in the sports and leisure goods market, such as surfboards, moisture-proof mats, and yoga mats. It also has certain uses in construction, and it has a wider range of applications in flame retardant materials. It has been widely used in the automotive and packaging industries recently.
