For years, the automotive industry has been concentrating on vehicle weight reduction to constantly improve fuel efficiencies and reductions on CO2 emissions.

During the past 20 years, Foam Products has been developing ―in close collaboration with prominent car manufacturing companies― light-weight and resilient auto components made out of Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) foam. In addition to being lighter in weight, auto components made of EPP are sustainable and comply with end of life (ELV) automotive requirements. Today, Foam Products continue their work with automotive manufactures to further expand and improve their current portfolio of EPP auto-components solutions.

One of the most interesting qualities of Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) foam, is that although they are extremely light in weight, this material is durable and resilient. Being so light weight, EPP is able to substantially reduce a vehicle’s mass weight whilst offering strength and shock absorbency which improves passenger and pedestrian safety. Furthermore, EPP is recyclable.
