Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) is an engineering plastic foam and has been widely used in various applications like packaging, automotive and other end-use industries, owing to its unique combination of material properties such as toughness, thermal insulation, chemical and water resistance, etc. Expanded polypropylene foam (EPP) was developed by JSP Company and is one of the highly produced foamed polymers globally. EPP also has good mechanical properties, and a homogeneous and closed-cell structure due to a stable thermal conductivity, even in moist environments. Thus, EPP can act as a senior heat preservation material. It is a moderately oil-resistant material with good general chemical resistance, and burns in the absence of non-toxic gas release compared to PS foams. It can recover and use, and the degradation performance is better than PS foams and PE foams.
Growing environmental concerns and the growing demand for light weight and fuel efficient cars are the key factors that anticipate the expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam market growth. Many industries such as packaging, aerospace, consumer products and others have an enormous demand for the EPP foam because to its properties such as recyclability and light weight. Rising demand for light weight, recyclable, and shock absorption properties in the packaging application is fuelling the demand for expanded polypropylene foam worldwide. However, volatility in raw material prices is the major restraint in the market growth.
