At Worldcell® Extrusions, we are dedicated to producing high-quality polypropylene foam sheets. Being a customer service oriented company, we constantly strive to produce the best and most innovative products for our customers. Below is a list of the current materials offered at Worldcell Extrusions:
Worldcell® 3x is a blend that has been expanded 3 times by foam extrusion giving it durable, yet lightweight characteristics. This blend makes fabrication a cinch thanks to the superior cutting quality of the material. Common fabrication techniques include die cutting, water jet cutting, thermoforming, ultrasonic welding, and CNC routing. This material provides:
- Class "A" friendly surface protection
- Good strength consistency
- Easy fabrication
- No flutes and an easy to clean exterior
Compared to traditional plastic corrugated or other materials widely used in handheld tote applications, Worldcell provides a durable, low abrasion surface without the need of lamination. This material is perfect for packaging abrasion sensitive parts. Unlike corrugated plastic, Worldcell does not contain flutes, which can trap dirt or moisture causing contamination.
Worldcell® 2x expansion is a denser blend than the 3x expansion that has been expanded 2 times by foam extrusion. While this blend is heavier than 3x, it still has a lightweight feel to it as opposed to HDPE. This 2x expansion material provides a stiff, rigid surface while still being a low abrasion material. Many applications include tote dunnage and HDPE replacements. This material provides:
- Smooth surface with excellent "Class A" friendly impact resistance
-Easy to clean surface
- No flutes to trap dirt or contaminates
- Easy fabrication
- Excellent strength consistency
This material is commonly used as a replacement for heavy duty plastic corrugated and even HDPE in some cases. Being half the weight of an HDPE sheet, Worldcell® offers a lightweight and cost effective alternative in some cases.
