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.

In Europe, made out of 30% recycled material to form an end product that is 100% recyclable.

PRODUCT PERFORMANCE

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.

Dynamic Cushioning

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.

Compression Creep

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 30% 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. Based on the European Commission decision  97/129/EC ARPLANK is designated as low-density polyethylene (LDPE) as recycling category 4.
