ARPLANK is a highly resilient closed cell bead foam product made out of expanded polyethylene (EPE). During the fusion process, the polyethylene’s outer shells are thermally bonded creating at hree dimensional sphere or bead that absorb sand dissipates energy.The beads are then moulded into isotropic blocks creating a highly qualitative and protective packaging option.
ARPLANK is 100% recyclable
25% recycled content
30-50% material savings with the same cushioning properties
ARPLANK is ideally suited as an energy absorbing cushioning material for products requiring shock absorption, vibration dampening, insulation and chemical resistance. It withstands multiple impacts without damage, is very lightweight and is non-abrasive for Class A surfaces. It is also multidirectional in nature.
Unlike traditional foams, which yield different properties along the extrusion, vertical and horizontal axes, the properties of ARPLANK are the same regardless of orientation, thus, making it an ideal and versatile product for protective packaging applications.
High shock absorption
Wide temperature range -60 to 100°C
ARPLANK is one of the few EPE products (made from expanded ARPAK, using 25% recycled content) which is produced without VOC blowing agents.
All ARPLANK products are free of CFCs, HCFCs and other ozone depleting compounds. ARPLANK is free of any restrictedheavy metals, such as lead (Pb) or lead compounds, mercury (Hg) or mercury compounds and chromium VI (Cr-VI) or chromium compounds and do not contain halogen compounds or brominated (Br) compounds. Moreover, all ARPLANK products are fully reusable and recyclable.
Based on the European Commission decision97/129/EC ARPLANK is designated as low-density polyethylene (LDPE) as recycling category 4.
