Expanded Polypropylene (EPP)
EXPANDED POLYPROPYLENE (EPP) is a closed-cell flexible foam with excellent cushioning and load bearing characteristics. Benefits of using EPP include:
- Low water absorption
- Chemical resistance
- High strength and durability
- Used in automotive for bumpers and crash pads
- Perfect for reusable applications
EPP beads produce a low-density closed-cell foam with excellent energy absorption characteristics. The material has excellent recoverability from repeated shocks and deformations. Foams molded from these beads also retain their high degree of dimensional stability when exposed to temperature extremes.
