The EPP forum welcomes a new member! The EPP forum is pleased about the new member Jacob Formschaumtechnik GmbH. The 1996 founded business specialized in the fabrication of mouldings made of EPS, EPP and EPE. The track record of the innovative materials is also reflected in the development of the company in Cadolzburg. Due to a disproportionate accretion, "Jacob Formschaumtechnik" belongs to the leading providers in the domain of EPP moldings.
These days, mainly carriers, pallets for small parts, high-quality wrapping and insulated containers, e.g. the so-called "Jacobox", as well as technical fragments, energy absorbing mouldings and frame components are manufactured. For a short time, EPP parts have been produced in combination with other substances, for example thermoformed parts, too. These are mainly applied more and more in the field of decoration. Especially the automotive, components suppliers and electronic industries are served. For the popular Jacoboxes the outstanding material property of EPP was turned to account. That way, the boxes are extremely resistant to chemical products on the one hand and notably fracture-proof on the other hand. The shock strength and a long service life are further advantages of the convenient boxes.

The innovative substance EPP also ensures durability subject to extreme temperature conditions. In their capacity of insulation, the Jacoboxes withstand e.g. heat as well as low temperature from +100 down to -40 degree Celsius. Furthermore, EPP is a guarantor for hygienic transport since it is not only tasteless and odourless, but also does not have deep pores in which germs and bacteria could conglomerate.

As much dedication in the area of EPP, EPE and EPS of course has to be appreciated adequately. And that is why the company, which not only has an own development department but also an own tool construction at its command, has been DIN-certified according to EN ISO 9001 since 1999.

The EPP forum now welcomes Jacob Formschaumtechnik GmbH as a further, innovative and ambitious member, which will make the application areas of the substance EPP more public by its successful products and which wants to take part actively in the forming of the "EPP future" in the forum. Welcome!
