EPP can also be found, where it would not be suspected at all at first glance: in football stadiums. Expanded polypropylene represents a perfect basis for artificial turf. The EPP ground plates excel not only in their cushioning effect, they are ultra lightweight as well and can be transported everywhere low-cost and eco-friendly.
Another advantage: The EPP ground plates can be assembled like tesseras without problems. In no time, a large basis for artificial turf is arising.
Due to these attributes of EPP, the football fan wonders: Is the feathery EPP material really able to bear current and future football giants without difficulty? Of course. Using tremendous heat, the small evacuated plastic beads smelt into an extremely stable and solid material, which sustains every size of footballer without problems.
