Rely on Our PE Foam Sheets for Insulation, Packaging and More
Well-made PE foam sheets are in demand all around the globe, and for good reason. PE (polyethylene) foam offers a variety of properties that make it extremely versatile. It is durable but also soft and lightweight. These properties collectively give PE foam a wide range of applications across many industries and markets — needs that our team at Gardiner Australia is here to help our clients meet.
Here are just a few of the applications of PE foam sheets:
Water resistance. PE foam has a closed-cell structure, which essentially means that each sheet consists of millions of minuscule bubbles (or cells) that are all closed off from one another. At Gardiner, our PE foam is particularly popular for use as roof infill strips, which will not absorb ambient moisture from the atmosphere that ultimately could cause your roof to rust.
Thermal insulation. The closed-cell design of our PE foam sheets also makes them ideal for thermal insulation applications. For instance, they can be used in building designs, wrapped around a pipe, implemented as carpet underlay or used in other ways to provide thermal protection and insulation.
Packaging. For packaging, shipping or other transport applications, a PE foam sheet can provide insulation and shock absorption that protect whatever is being shipped or transported. Polyethylene foam is particularly popular for packaging or moving fragile goods.
The foam is thin and lightweight but still offers strength and rigidity, which is ideal for reducing package weight and shipping costs while still providing enough protection.
What Sets Gardiner Australia Apart Regarding PE Foam Sheets?
What makes a PE foam sheet from Gardiner Australia more reliable than what you can find elsewhere? Here are a few key differentiators of us and our product:
Our polyethylene foam is always closed-cell. The closed-cell nature of our polyethylene foam is the secret to its success for insulation, moisture protection and other applications. However, some companies sell PE foam products that use open-cell foam rather than closed-cell.
We never use fillers. Not all PE foam sheets or products are made the same way. Some companies manufacture or import polyethylene foam that uses what are called ‘fillers’ in the industry. The use of filler in the manufacturing process can affect the foam’s durability, leading to faster degradation, pest attacks, or even shrinkage.
We have a wide variety of products. Whether you are looking for foam sheets or PE roof infill strips, you will have no problem finding what you need from Gardiner Australia. Our PE foam sheets, in particular, are available in a few foam densities (PE 33, PE 45 and PE 65), as well as in different sheet sizes and thickness, different colours and with the option of self-adhesive backing.
