High Strength & Impact Protection

Expanded polypropylene (EPP) foams are a lightweight and highly durable packaging and component solution. They have high static compression, meet high drop-test requirements, and have high service temperatures (up to 212°F). They are ideal for shipping, crating, and applications that require extended stacking strength and impact, shock, and vibration mitigation such as insulated thermal bulkheads, automotive components, light-weighting, EV battery liners, and 3D compression molded parts. EPP foam is isotropic in nature, has been stringently tested, and can manage impacts from 25MPH to 10 G’s.

Expanded polypropylene foam is nearly double the stiffness of equivalent polyethylene foam. EPP foams can be fabricated into custom sizes and shapes and now offers new, more flexible formulations for easier part fabrication.

EPP is available in a variety of densities including 1.3, 1.9, 2.8 and 3.7 pcf, 6″ thickness.

new, more flexible formulations for easier part fabrication!


Lightweight and Cost-Efficient

  • Unique because it can withstand repeated blows and return to its original shape after absorbing impact energy
  • Manages shock from any impact angle or direction
  • Stiffer and wider static loading ranges that provide more protection than traditional closed-cell packaging foams

Thermal Insulation

  • Maintains thermal properties over a wide range of temperatures from -20°F to 212°F
  • Provides excellent thermal insulation and can be used to ship temperature-sensitive products used to prevent heat transfer from occurring
  • Offers excellent high-temperature cushioning performance

Chemical Resistance

  • As a chemically inert substance, EPP foams are virtually unaffected when exposed to most chemicals, oil and grease, petroleum, water and moisture
  • Anti-microbial material will not harbor mold and bacterial growth

Environmentally Friendly

  • 100% recyclable and environmentally sound
  • “Ozone Safe,” meet RoHS requirements, NAFTA compliant
  • Made with CO2 and will not emit any harmful CFC or HCFC gasses back into the environment
