Polyethylene Foams (PE)

Designed for the needs of shoe, sports equipment, vehicle, boat and construction industries. Used as heat, condensation and sound insulation. The product gathers no water, which makes it also suitable for bathrooms. PE foams are mechanically and elastically stable and resistant to wear.

Polyethylene foams are also widely used as seals, packaging materials and seat padding. Also used as frost mats to protect concrete from freezing during the hardening process.

Meluton was founded in a barn on the outskirts of Helsinki back in 1977. The first flame lamination solutions were designed to reduce noise, so the company was named Meluton, meaning Noiseless in Finnish. And that’s still our soundproof promise of our noise cancellation solutions.
