Areas of application for EPP
Already well-known in the automotive industry for many years, expanded polypropylene is now conquering other sectors as well. Thanks to its impressive properties, moulded parts made of EPP are used in a wide variety of fields.
The excellent insulation properties make EPP particularly attractive for heat and ventilation engineering. The low weight qualifies EPP is suitable for use in lightweight construction. Variable design and formation options are a big plus, especially for the furniture and design industries. Stability and food-safe properties also make expanded polypropylene a sought-after material for logistics and packaging as well as sports and leisure applications.
EPP: Contaminant-free, reusable and sustainable
During the production of expanded polypropylene, no phthalates or other health-harming substances are added. Because of this, at the end of their life, EPP moulded parts can be shredded and made into new parts. The robustness of the material ensures that components made of EPP are very durable. Reusable packaging can therefore be used time and time again over many years. This conserves resources and thus helps to protect our environment.
What’s more, the lightweight nature of components made of EPP, which are used in the automotive industry among others, means that less fuel is consumed and emissions are reduced.
Order a sample case
To give you an understanding of the wide range of possibilities offered by EPP, we have put together a sample case for you. It contains 21 sample plates in various colours and finishes – a real eye-catcher in itself. The case also shows how EPP components can be joined to each other or to other materials. Order a sample case of expanded polypropylene to take home and let yourself be inspired.
Members of the EPP Forum
The members of the EPP Forum form a representative cross-section of the EPP industry and work together to promote the proliferation and further development of innovative products made of expanded polypropylene.
Our members include well-known companies from the fields of raw material production, tooling and mechanical engineering for EPP processing, moulded parts production, joining technology and design as well as a research institute.
