Materials

LD15

Plastazote LD15 is a black closed-cell, cross-linked polyethylene foam and has a nominal density of 0.9 PCF / 15 kg/m³, making it the lightest Plastazote material available. It is manufactured with Zotefoams’ unique chemical-free nitrogen infusion process, producing an environmentally friendly product with low VOCs. It is available in sheet form and can be thermoformed into different shapes. It has a cell size of 0.38 mm and a thermal conductivity of 0.0387 W/m.K.
