expanded polypropylene

As a high performance plastic foam material, EPP provides a range of benefits for both the manufacturer and end-user. Design Engineers frequently use EPP (ARPRO®) for replacement of materials such as metals, wood and a variety of other plastics.

Expanded polypropylene (EPP) is an engineered plastic foam material. By combining polypropylene resin with magic dust, and applying heat, pressure and CO2 in an autoclave, the material is formed into small plastic beads. These small, closed-cell foam beads are injected into a steam chest to create parts custom moulded into complex shapes using steam heat & pressure.
