Our closed cell Polyolefin foam like Polyethylene (PE) and its blends has been used for artistic purposes for many years and the ability to manipulate them is seen as a commercial skill in creative circles.
PE foams and its blends are simple to manipulate by hand. They can be cut with scissors, sawn, carved with a craft knife, drilled, sanded and glued. Being cross-linked they can also be thermoformed easily (and at relatively low temperatures) and are also suitable for ‘direct to body’ molding. Their applications include models, puppetry and toy making, costumes and props and artwork technology.
