XL EXTRALIGHT is a closed cell foam material made with polyolefin resins. The patented process starts with the formulation of the foam, continues with the engineering of the moulding equipment and culminates in the moulding of the product. The lightweight foam can be used in any manufacturing and design department.
The material is light, flexible, colourful, soft and anti-microbial. It is a mouldable material, and can be used in anything from footwear to fashion, from automotive to pillow manufacturing, from plastic homeware and interior design to everyday objects. The key feature of this plastic foam is that it combines low density and good physical and mechanical properties with a distinctive “soft touch” tactility.
