Bumper Cores

Front and rear bumper cores made from Expanded Polypropylene boast an unrivalled energy absorption and exceptional performance. The front and rear bumpers are the first point of contact when a vehicle is involved in a crash. It is for this reason that car manufacturers have adopted Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) high-impact shock absorption capabilities, as the right solution to keep passengers and pedestrians safer.

The replacement of heavier car components with EPP has achieved part weight reduction of up to 70% which deliver substantial cost and energy savings when multiplied across annual vehicle production numbers.
