EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) : Polypropylene Foam Material
It is a kind of high crystalline polymer/gas composite material with excellent performance. With its unique and superior performance, it has become the fastest growing new environmental protection anti-compression buffer heat insulation material.EPP products have excellent seismic and energy absorption performance, high recovery rate after deformation, good heat resistance, chemical resistance, oil resistance and insulation, in addition, its light weight, can greatly reduce the weight of goods.
EPP is applied more and more widely. IT products, electronic communication equipment, liquid crystal display, plasma color TV, precision electronic components, precision instruments and meters have begun to use EPP as packaging materials in large quantities.Another very important application field is a large number of application in automobile industry, car bumper, car side shockproof shockproof, car door core, advanced safety car seat, car seat, tool box, trunk, armrest, bottom plate, visor and dashboard (according to the statistics data, the current average per car, and 100 ~ 130 kg in plastic EPP plastic used in it about 4 ~ 6 kg).
In addition, EPP is also a good material for making aviation models, but the price is also an important reason to limit the homemade EPP model.
