EPP hvac – thermohydraulics

Expanded polypropylene is an excellent insulating material and therefore it can be used to improve the performances of heaters and air-conditioners.

MPE Polypropylene Division places its twenty-years  experience in moulding and producing EPP products at its customer’s disposal, especially in the thermohydraulic industry.

Thanks to its mechanical versatility, expanded polypropylene can be used in producing and moulding components and articles that are at the same time light and resistant, suitable for various applications.

Its lightness, its excellent strength-to-flexibility ratio and its thermal insulation property make it the ideal material for every kind of applications in the thermohydraulic industry: heating, air-conditioning, waterworks.

EPP details

EPP is a plastic material with a wide range of applications and high engineering performances. Thanks to its specific properties, it can be used in various areas to improve technical performances and the absolute value of the end product.

Resistant and non-deformable
EPP has a very high strength-to-weight ratio, with exceptional load bearing quality, reducing weight and volumes. Its high energy absorbing property makes it the ideal material to build, for instance, protection components in the automotive and logistic industry.
Lightness
EPP is an ultra light material. It allows a significant weight reduction of the end product, with a substantial increase of resistance and efficiency.
Acoustic insulation
Porous EPP guarantees acoustic insulation, with excellent performances in the automotive industry.
Thermal insulation
When temperature resistance is required, EPP provides thermal insulation: food, medical supplies and temperature sensitive products. EPP thermal insulation makes it the ideal material to be used in thermohydraulics.
Recyclable
EPP is 100% recyclable.

EPP in thermohydraulics

EPP has various applications in thermohydraulics, thanks to its heat insulation property: it is the ideal material to be used in areas such as heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and insulation. Other characteristics like strength, lightness, design flexibility and elasticity make EPP the best solution for a wide range of applications in thermohydraulics. Among other products you can find heat-exchangers, valves, control mechanisms, boilers and pumps. They are housed in EPP casings to improve the thermal insulation of the entire system.

In short, in the thermohydraulic industry EPP lightness, thermal insulation property and its easiness to mould make it the ideal material for important applications, as it allows  to considerably reduce, for instance, the weight of the finished product, increasing its resistance at the same time
