Salzburg, June 26th of 2008. At the euroLite 2008, in the exhibition centre of Salzburg/Austria, the EPP forum has presented the versatile fields of operation of EPP.
From June 24th up to the 26th, at the 20 sqm tall booth, draughtsmen, engineers and designers informed themselves about the possible application areas for expanded polypropylene, in short EPP. Additionally, the opportunity arose for Christian Traßl, executive director of the EPP forum, to socialize with salesmen and managers of the diverse industrial sectors.

The numerous visitors from the automotive industry, aerospace industry, machine construction, boat and yacht building, recreational equipment industry and other domains showed broad interest in the innovative substance. After all, EPP enjoys many advantages: Being a lightweight and rugged material, it is optimally qualified for the vehicle manufacturing, naval architecture and aircraft construction. Thanks to its insulating attributes, EPP is perfect for the transport of foods. Since the foam is mouldable freely, it also finds favour with designers.

After the three days in Salzburg, Christian Traßl drew a positive balance: ?At the trade fair, we met an audience in search of new ideas of light construction and innovative substances. The ideal target group for EPP.? Successfully, the executive director presented the attributes and applications of the foam to the numerous visitors of the EPP booth. Christian Traßl could elate new businesses for the versatile material. The immediate contact to economy and research paid off: Ideas were initiated, addresses exchanged. The result: euroLite 2008 took the EPP forum another step forward and increased the degree of popularity of EPP.

euroLite is pan-European the only trade fair for lightweight constructions. Launched in 2007, the exhibition attracted even more prospects and entrepreneurs in 2008: The second euroLite fair with 188 exhibitors from nine countries, posted a growth rate of almost 47 percent compared to the first event. Here, small just like large businesses provided an intersectoral and technology independent overview of newest developments of construction methods, material grades and manufacturing technologies.
