Expanded Polypropylene

Advantages of EPP

  • It is a relatively lightweight material
  • It has insulating properties
  • It is extremely resilient
  • It has increased chemical resistance in comparison to EPS products

Typical Applications of EPP

EPP is very versatile for use in a growing number of applications. EPP is also an excellent replacement for metals and other plastic materials.


Used in moulded parts such as seat cores, bumpers, knee pads and door fillers. EPP can significantly reduce weight, save fuel and increase durability


For both moulded and fabricated packaging, EPP is stiffer and more energy absorbent than other plastics

Consumer Products

EPP presents endless opportunities for industrial and product designers looking to create and innovate

Heating, ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC)

Used for housing water pumps, heat-exchangers and more, EPP delivers thermal and noise insulation with an optimal lambda coefficient.


Polypropylene is recyclable and has the number "5" as its resin identification code: RIC
