This premium quality pinning material is crosslinked polyethylene foam, imported from England. Plastazote foam is very fine grained, closed cell construction, and is more dense, white and opaque than standard 1028N polyethylene foam which is of an open cell construction.
Foam is 3/8″ (9.5mm) thick, and is extremely firm. It holds an insect pin more securely than 1028N foam, actually resisting the pin and holding it with a secure grip even before being inserted completely. Material has the same chemical characteristics as 1028N foam, and is cut to size and installed in the same manner.
When ordering 1028PT special cut foam, note that the minimum order is 10 pieces of the same size. Price is $4.14per square foot or fraction thereof.
The density of our Plastazote foam sheet is 2.1 lbs./cu.ft. is a closed cell cross-linked polyethylene foam.
Due to adverse effects of chlorinated hydrocarbons on polyethylene foam and many adhesives, use of #1196 or #1196F DDVP fumigants in drawers, trays or boxes with foam pinning bottoms is recommended.
Note: 10s8PS Plastazote foam sheets cannot be sent via postal/mail service out of the U.S. due to length limitation (36″).
White polyethylene foam #1028N is also available as a pinning material. It is not as dense as plastazote foam, but is less expensive.
