Plastazote foams are a type of closed-cell, cross-linked polythene foam that is known for its high performance and versatility. They are commonly used in a variety of applications, including cushioning, insulation, and packaging, due to their ability to withstand extreme temperatures, high compression, and repeated impacts. Plastazote foams are also known for their low water absorption, making them well-suited for use in damp or humid environments. They are often used in the automotive, aerospace, and medical industries, as well as in consumer products. Plastazote foams are available in a range of densities and colours and can be customized to meet the specific needs of different applications. They are also resistant to a wide range of chemicals, making them suitable for use in many industrial applications.
Plastazote is the most common closed-cell, polyethylene foam used in the foot orthotic industry. It will adhere to most materials, it is readily washable, discourages bacteria growth and has good thermal properties.
Plastazote foams have widespread uses in orthotics, prosthetic linings and foot care appliances. A thermoplastic polyethylene foam, Plastazote is easily heat moulded (85-140°C) and will adhere to most materials.
Its unique cross linked construction and non toxicity have established Plastazote as standard for orthotic linings. It is readily washable, discourages bacteria growth and has good thermal properties.
Medical application areas include: orthotics, splinting, seating, collars, prosthetic padding & protective equipment.
