Apollo Foam convert and process materials suitable for the variety of uses in the building and construction industry, the drive for increased performance in acoustic and thermal insulation properties of modern buildings requires the use of flexible , lightweight, eco-friendly and technically advanced materials.
Polyethylene and Polyurethane foam are the versatile materials of choice in the building and construction industry.
Polyethylene foam is used extensively in construction, it fills gaps, acts as a barrier to water, oil, and fuel, eliminates draughts, seals eaves and roofing flashing, it’s consistent durable and insulating. It’s ideal for expansion joints and provides sound proofing and noise control for floor joists and sports flooring.
Sports floors especially require a degree of elasticity to lesson jarring of athletes limbs and joints upon impact. Polyethylene foam with an EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) are ideal for this application due to their fantastic resistance, durability, and compression stress capabilities.
Polyethylene foam is a great movement control material, and is ideal for eaves and ridge fillers, movement joints, and frost blankets due to their lightweight, long life expectancy, sealing properties, and thermal values.
Dependant upon the application polyethylene foam can be mixed with an additive to meet more stringent test requirements such as FR (Flame Retardant), UV resistance, compression & tension characteristics, thermal absorption, sound absorption, EVA (Ethylene Vinyl acetate).
Open cell polyurethane foam provides soundproofing as it is processed and engineered to provide effective noise reduction which can be tailored to suit your specific domestic or industrial environment.
Open cell foams effectively work due to their open cells trapping sound waves to provide noise reduction.
Typical applications for Polyethylene and Polyurethane foam would be:
