More about ETHAFOAM 220
We supply ETHAFOAM in long sheets cut to thickness as required. It can be fabricated into a vast range of shapes, profiles and component pieces.
ETHAFOAM 220 has excellent water resistance characteristics, is impervious to most chemicals and is non-abrasive. It performs consistently over a wide range of temperatures.
ETHAFOAM 220 is manufactured in a semi-rigid extruded plank in a single solid thickness up to 100mm. It is not made by laminating thin sections of material together. The result is a much stronger product than many others.
