Molding of expanded polypropylene

Among the various leading companies active in expanded polypropylene molding there is MPE Polypropylene Division, which won Arpro Award in 2011, for molding acoustic insulation elements in P-EPP (porous expanded polypropylene) for the building industry.

Polypropylene molding

Polypropylene molding, that is what MPE Polypropylene Division does. Expanded polypropylene, known also as EPP, is a plastic material that can be used in various industries for a wide range of applications, thanks to its specific characteristics.

Various functions and high engineering performances make EPP ideal to improve the absolute value and the technical performances of the finished products.

Polypropylene molding can be useful also in the logistic and automotive industries, thanks to its strength-to-weight ratio, with an exceptional load bearing quality combined with a practical optimization of volumes and absorbing property.

Thanks to its exceptional thermal insulation property, polypropylene is the ideal material to be used for various applications such as: ventilation, heating, refrigeration and air-conditioning.

This property and its unique lightness make EPP the right solution for boilers, valves and pumps. Control mechanisms and heat-exchangers are often housed in EPP casings to improve the thermal insulation of the entire system, reducing weight and costs.

You should not forget its aesthetic qualities, making EPP ideal to be used for interior design

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.
