Pactiv Polyplank: Soft Foam Plank Alternative
November 17, 2003
Pactiv Corp. has announced its PolyPlank SFT "soft" foam plank product. The product offers a cost-effective protection solution for surfaces sensitive to marring. The foam's softness properties are derived from a marriage of polyethylene plank and additives. It is a non cross-linked foam made via extrusion. More expensive cross-linked foams rely on a batch process. The end result of the product's extrusion process is a fine cell structure, which comes close to equaling the properties found in the more expensive cross-linked version. Packagers and fabricators can now experience the protection benefits of a "soft" foam product, while still achieving cost savings of approximately 10 to 20 percent over cross-linked foams.
