The difference between XPE/IXPE foam and PVC foam

    What is PVC foam?
    PVC foam, English name Polyvinyl Chloride Foam, is a foam material made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride).

    PVC foam has the characteristics of flame retardant, waterproof and moistureproof, heat preservation, shockproof buffer, acid and alkali resistance, oil resistance, etc. It is mainly used in rail transit, tape and other industries.

    What is XPE foam material?
    XPE foam and IXPE foam are new environmentally friendly polymer materials. Compared with PVC foam, XPE and IXPE foam materials are more environmentally friendly, safer, odorless, and have better mechanical properties, stronger, more durable, and moisture-proof. , Good heat preservation and sound insulation effect. XPE foam is commonly used in construction, automobile, sports, packaging and air conditioning industries, such as car mats, floor mats, moisture-proof mats, archery targets, baby crawling mats, etc.

    Which is better, PVC foam or XPE foam?
    The main raw material of PVC foam is oligovinyl chloride. The foam contains chlorine, which is halogen-containing foam, which is not environmentally friendly. Many countries have banned the application of halogen-containing foam, so the application range of PVC foam is limited. PVC foam has good flame-retardant properties and can meet the FMVSS 302 standard, which is the combustion test standard for interior materials of vehicle compartments. Therefore, PVC foam can be used in transportation rail related products.

    XPE foam has better environmental performance and is recognized as an environmentally friendly foam material. It has been widely used in construction, automobile, packaging, sports, air conditioning and heat preservation industries.
