PE (Polyethylene) Foam is very resilient and used extensively in packaging. In the sheet form, it is available in varying densities, widths, thicknesses, and colors.
Polyfoam underlay is an environmentally friendly product made of polyethylene and is ideal for those who want to install a floating floor (laminate or engineered wood flooring) over any type of subfloor that is relatively even, dry and firm. More specifically, such sub-floors can be existing floorboards, plywood, hardboard and chipboard.
Even though many articles that you'll read on the internet will tell you that poly foam underlay is not suitable for concrete applications, it can be still used, but then a damp proof membrane must first be laid over the sub-floor. This can either be in the form of sheets, or a 2 part damp proof membrane which is a liquid resin that sets to seal the concrete sub-floor.
In general, poly foam is a very cheap and basic underlay but this doesn't mean that it is a poor option. It benefits from a 100% closed-sell structure and is much thicker than the typical foam underlay, so it can absorb minor irregularities of the sub-floor. In addition to that, it has an integrated vapour barrier to protect your new floor against moisture, making it also suitable for underfloor heating.
The only thing you need to ensure prior to its installation, is that your sub-floor is clean and dry. Once you have laid your underlay, remember to secure each section to its neighbour with masking tape, in order to prevent moisture penetration through any gaps.
Another benefit of poly foam underlay, is its excellent sound impact reduction (6 dB). If you want to reduce the noise travelling from an upper room to the room below, then that's the right underlay for your floating floor.
Moreover it is lightweight and flexible, making it easy for everyone to handle and install.
- ideal soft cushioning protection gentle and non-abrasive
- flexible and easy to cut to size
Main Uses and Applications:
Scratch and cushioning protection for sensitive and polished surfaces including; tiles, marble, PC items, glass, timber, and benchtops.
Also used as an underlay style buffer under heavier impact sheets such as MDF-Board

How is polyethylene foam made?
This foam is made with monomers, known as ethylene, chained together and bonded to create a stable, solid plastic-like material. It is long-lasting and resistant to moisture and chemicals, and great for dampening vibrations. Polyethylene tends to be toxic in liquid or vapor foam, which is used only during manufacturing. Polyethylene is one of the most versatile foam types on the market.

What is polyethylene foam?
-Polyethylene sheet is, also known as PE foam, most commonly used in packaging applications. PE foam is designed to provide maximum protection, reducing the amount of packaging required. This sheet is generally used in packing products that need more security while transporting and shipping. It also provides safer and more secure packing for products like TVs, VCRs, stereos, computers, typewriters, cameras, electronic products, IC products and many more.
It is also known as high-density polyethylene and low-density polyethylene. Its low-density polyethylene material provides non-abrasive protection for delicate items prone to scuffs and scratches. It fulfills your requirements of packaging, damage-free transportation and scratch-proof transportation.
In recent years there has been much advancement in the method of appropriately recycling polyethylene foam. Certain companies will accept polyethylene foam for recycling. Then extra pieces melted down and formed new material for use. similar to most other plastic materials.
