Lightweight, durable & …stylish! – the surface structure of EPP
In recent years, a lot has happened in development and research work: In the past, the surface structure of particle foam components made of EPP was characterised by visible bead boundaries as well as imprints created during processing. However, modern manufacturing technologies in toolmaking mean fine, high-quality surface textures can be designed. Vapor-permeable structures can be created through the precision laser structuring of the mould inner surface or via subtractive processes, which also allow visual applications for EPP parts.
