EPE Foam- Advanced Properties, Wide Applications & Environment-friendly

EPE Foam Backer Rods

It is extremely important to choose reliable, efficient and sustainable EPE foam solutions that protect your products from atmospheric, shock and magnetic damage. There are various solutions which may include packaging types like liners, boxes, materials, etc. EPE foam is one of them.

What is EPE foam & its properties?

The Expanded Polyethylene Foam, also known as EPE Foam, is one of the popular packaging materials used. The primary objectives of EPE foam is to provide good cushioning to delicate products. The manufacturing process of EPE foam involves the use of high temperatures and pressure. Typically, EPE is processed by different methods such as hot forming, laminating, trimming and butting. The unique method of processing is determined after studying the application so that customers can be provided customized EPE foam solutions that contribute to their uninterrupted day to day operations.

It overcomes the limitations and deficiencies associated with other ordinary, fragile alternatives. This plastic is flexible, harmless and light in weight. However, it can allow companies to take up more volume of goods and products. EPE foam is actually a thermoplastic resin. It is possible to melt it by cooling it or heating it and thus reshaping the same into newer objects. It is the properties of EPE foam which make it desirable and unique. EPE foam, available in different densities, is equipped with properties such as water and moisture barrier, heat preservation, and resistance to several chemicals, making it an ideal substitute to traditional materials. Notably, the chemical makeup of EPE foam is mostly similar to many plastics.

Key advantages of EPE foam

  • Flexibility
  • Shock absorbency
  • Ability to regain original shape
  • Resistance to chemicals
  • Resistance to static
  • The best insulation against heat
  • Food safe
  • Non-toxic
  • Easy handling
  • Possibility of color coding and more aesthetics

EPE foam uses

It has a variety of applications across multiple industries. From EPE foam tubes, EPE foam profiles, sheets, to backer rod, a packing form is considered to be one of the most viable, efficient, safe and healthy options. EPE foam is widely used in packaging of products such as food, lighting, appliances, etc. Industries that use EPE foam packaging are food and beverage packaging, healthcare, construction, automotive, etc.

Is it possible to recycle EPE foam?

EPE is an environmentally-safe material. It can be recycled due to its versatile physical properties. Today, companies need to make their choice of the products and practices they employ partially based on the impact they can have on the environment. In this regard, EPE foam wins. As mentioned, foam can be reshaped into different shapes for several times because it is equipped with high thermal resistance properties. EPE foam is capable of maintaining its chemical structure under high temperatures, which allows itself to be reused or recycled. Some common methods of recycling can include bonding, grinding, carpeting in big areas, etc. The recycling process can be very simple – heat it until it melts and then reshape it.
