Polyether PU foams are available in a range of densities, widths and thicknesses. Thicknesses starting from 1.2 mm, width of upto 1100 mm and densities ranging from 10 to 65 Kg/m3 are available. These foams have exceptional mechanical strength, flexibility and allow free airflow through them. They can be used in flame or adhesive lamination, thermal insulation, shoes, protective packaging, noise reduction and vibration absorption products, etc. The foam can also be customised to required hardness.

EPE Foam (Expanded polyethylene foam):
Fortune EPE foam is a non cross-linked, extruded, semi-rigid, type of polyethylene foam. The base material used for its fabrication is low-density polyethylene (LDPE), processed with LPG as a blowing agent. The minute closed cells have a uniform structure available from 1 to 8 mm extruded thickness. A one-of-a-kind heat lamination process is used to build up on thickness ranging from 5 mm to 100 mm. The foam is moisture-resistant and CFC free.
EPE foam is used in a number of functions and products like exercise mats, carpet underlays, lining of shoes, leather jackets, life saving jackets, sun visors for cars, upholstery, insulation of windows, etc. It serves as an excellent substitute for coir and is used in mattresses. It is also commonly used as a replacement for thermocol packaging for electronic equipment, glassware, and other fragile products. Fortune EPE is available in the form of standard rolls and sheets.
