Innovations based on expanded polypropylene (EPP)
Expanded polypropylene (EPP) is an ultra lightweight polymer foam based on polypropylene. It is a multifunctional foam, which, in addition to the best specific mechanical ...
EPP-Forum e.V. represents an interdisciplinary and active network with actors from industry and research along the entire value chain for expanded polypropylene (EPP). The EPP Forum stimulates the transfer of knowledge about EPP. It supports research in the areas of material development and manufacturing techniques.EPP is one of the featherweights of polymer foams. This is the very property for which the multifunctional foam beads are so popular, since their enormous potential for lightweight construction comes with ideal mechanical properties and impressive thermal insulation performance.The EPP Forum is a federation of several renowned companies of the domains raw material, machine suppliers, manufacture and R&D. The idea behind the forum is to create a platform which covers the whole value-added chain of the product. At the same time, the EPP forum speaks for the implementation of the material in industrial sectors which have not taken EPP into consideration for themselves yet.
