  • Report Description
  • Summary

Expanded Polypropylene is a highly versatile closed-cell bead foam that provides a unique range of properties, including outstanding energy absorption, multiple impact resistance, thermal insulation, buoyancy, water and chemical resistance, exceptionally high strength to weight ratio and 100% recyclability. EPP can be made in a wide range of densities, from 15 to 200 grams per litre, which are transformed by moulding into densities ranging from 18 to 260 grams per litre. 

Moreover, porous EPP is comprised of cylinder-shaped polypropylene beads, which adds air space between the beads in the final moulded form, which enhances beneficial acoustical insulating effects and reduces weight. EPP is commonly colored black for automotive applications, though is often found in white for packaging products. EPP is available from some suppliers in vibrant colors suitable for presentation-grade textured surface.
