Crosslinked Polyethylene Automotive Dunnage
Product Announcement from Merryweather Foam, Inc.
Merryweather's Crosslinked Polyethylene products are the perfect solution for automotive dunnage applications, providing high temperature resistance, enhanced vacuum formability, high performance pressure forming properties, stiffness, and toughness.
Crosslinked Polyethylene is a closed cell material and a fine celled polyethylene with a smooth surface. It is created through an irradiation process that forces molecular bonds to link that would not normally link during the normal development process of polyethylene. The increased bond strength is what gives the material its fine celled smooth surface, makes it more durable, more chemically resistant, gives it better mechanical properties and makes it more aesthetically pleasing.
Merryweather Foam has over 50 years experience as a fabricator and distributor of flexible foam products.
