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 a three dimensional sphere or bead that absorbs and dissipates energy. The beads are then moulded into isotropic blocks creating a highly qualitative and protective packaging option.
Made out of 25% recycled material to form an end product that is 100% recyclable.
In Europe, made out of 25% recycled material to form an end product that is 100% recyclable.
ARPLANK is chemically inert; no chemicals used during production and no VOC. It is resistant to water and oils.
Density optimization making ARPLANK 30-40% smaller, lighter and a safer packaging option.
Multi-directional compression, unaffected by the direction of impact.
HIGH SHOCK ABSORPTION
Isotropic Blocks meaning that there is the same impact performance from all 3 axes.
High temperature range from -60 to 100°C.
WIDE TEMPERATURE RANGE
ARPLANK Blocks have an outstanding compression strength and return to nearly 100% of their original shape.
Due to the lower density, ARPLANK Blocks are also highly resistant to heavy loads over long periods of time.
ARPLANK is a highly resilient packaging option that resists repetitive impacts with only minimal performance decline.
High Shock Absorption
Due to its density properties, ARPLANK can protect heavier fragile goods/items using less packaging material.
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.

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 restricted heavy 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. They are designated by the SPI (Society of the Plastics Industry) recycling standard as recycling category 4.
Do more with less material.
150 mm Blocks
ARPLANK are some of the largest EPE blocks on the market.
Due to larger block, less manpower operations is required.
Less Gluing/ Lamination Steps
Compared to similar materials, ARPLANK only has minimal concavity.
ARPLANK returns to nearly 100% of its original shape even after repeated impacts.
