Expanded Polyethylene Foam abbreviated as EPE has excellent cushioning characteristics and cushioning absorption, and excellent recovery from compression. In particular, there is excellent protection effect for the higher precision products or higher unit priced products.
- Compressive strength: EPE is effective for all types of compressive strength; it can support a larger range of loads, very suitable to be used as cushioning and fixing materials.
- Elasticity: EPE can provide the best recovery to withstand repetitive compression and can quickly return nearer the original shape.
- Stretch and tear strength: EPE is a very tough material, high extending and tearing strength, can withstand possible broken and fragmented conditions caused by rugged handling.
- Flexibility: In addition to toughness, EPE has better flexibility compared with other materials.
- Noise and Vibration Control: EPE has excellent control over these factors of noise and vibration absorption.
- Low water absorption and resistant to water vapor infiltration: EPE has very low water absorption and highly resistant to water vapor infiltration.
- Chemical Resistance: EPE has excellent stability to acid and alkali, petrochemical products, coatings, alcohol and other chemicals.
- Effective temperature: EPE Resistant -30℃~70℃ temperature range and will not affect the product.
- Biological changes: EPE itself does not promote the growth of bacteria; this feature reduces the storage problem and other environmental considerations.
- No practical value: EPE does not have any nutrition values, can prevent pollution when eaten by rodents.
- Odorless: EPE itself is odorless and does not absorb odor from other sources.
- No abrasion: soft and elastic, preventing EPE from scratching and scraping on the surface.
- Non-toxic: EPE is non-toxic, will not cause physiological changes.
- Dust-proof: EPE is a tough and rather strong material, not easy to be stripped, or scraped that causes dust
- No environmental protection issues: EPE is non-toxic, recyclable, and will not produce dioxin when burned, conforms to safety and environmental standards.
- Easy to processing manufacture: quick design for production, and easy to be used in bonding with other materials to increase the production of flexibility.
