The platen sizes of our machines range from 600 × 800 mm to 1200 × 1400 mm.

Expanded Polypropylene is a closed cell foam which is flexible and lightweight. Its high energy absorbent properties combined with characteristic lightness make it a vital material in various industries. It also has a high capacity of energy absorption which is unchangeable after multiple impact loading and repetitive shocks, and recovers remarkably after dynamic and static loading.  EPP’s distinct properties of high sound absorption, low water absorption and excellent chemical resistance have further fuelled its use in various fields. High thermal resistance allows EPP to provide optimum heat insulation. EPP does not support microbial growth and can be made sterile with steam cleaning, making it appropriate for use in containers for food and beverages. However, the most distinctive features of EPP are its ecological properties. An environmentally-friendly product, it can be recycled easily and is 100% non-toxic, containing no CFC or any other blowing agents.

Applications of Expanded Polypropylene in the Auto Industry

Expanded Polypropylene is widely utilised by automotive manufacturers because of its performance benefits for energy management, lightweight, enhanced functionality, durability and recyclability.  These properties make EPP an ideal choice for the automotive industry to manufacture various parts such as bumper systems, battery covers, sun visors, head rests, seats, door panels and side impact protection panels.

Other Applications of EPP

EPP is durable, lightweight, and recyclable. It is resistant to water, chemicals, and most oils and can withstand multiple impacts without significant damage making its applications almost limitless. Reusable industrial packaging, known as dunnage, is frequently made from EPP due to its durability and its inherent ability to absorb energy in transit. EPP’s thermal insulation properties and structural strength make it ideal for packaging and transporting hot/cold food and beverages. This property also makes it useful in the production of heat exchanger parts. EPP’s ability to absorb impact makes it the perfect choice as packaging for computers, printers, peripherals and as protection corners for various cubic articles. It is even used extensively in the manufacture of computer housings. The defense industry uses EPP extensively as a reusable packaging for various items in India and various countries.
