Once the model is chosen, there are other criteria to take into account to choose the foam film corresponding to your needs.
Criterion 1: the thickness of the foam
One of the most important criteria is the thickness of the polyethylene foam . It can vary from 1 mm to 10 mm. This gap of a few millimeters may seem trivial for a human but wide polyethylene foam, it changes a lot of things: the higher the foam film is thicker, it is protective.
For example, a foam film with a thickness of less than 2 mm serves only to prevent the appearance of scratches on the fragile surface while a foam film of more than 2 mm thick can be used to absorb shocks and therefore to protect the packaged product or furniture.
Criterion 2: Conditioning
Our range of foam film is exclusively packaged in rolls ranging from 50 to 500 meters long and from 50 cm to 1.2 m in width (or width). Roll packaging is ideal for wrapping objects and furniture of any size with its large dimensions.
