By conveyor belt or push bike, car or delivery van – however goods are transported, the same high demands are placed on the wrapping.
Properties of the ideal wrapping:
Low material weight
Strong, impact-resistant material
Reliable protection of the transported goods
Optimum eco-friendliness and recyclability
Excellent insulating properties
Expanded polypropylene fits this exact profile of requirements perfectly. Despite its sturdy structure, which protects the transported goods all round, EPP foam is not a gram too heavy: feather-light moulded parts made from particle foam therefore reduce emissions – a paragon of eco-friendliness in the plastics industry!
Given the high temperature resistance of EPP, wrappings made of this particle foam can be thoroughly cleaned and even sterilized – an essential requirement for packaging materials that come into contact with foods or medical products.
So many advantages! – It is no surprise that expanded polypropylene’s trail of success started in the wrapping sector, and specifically with the Thermobox.
