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.
EPP Material Properties
Weight-saving without compromise
Cushioning of crash impacts
Fully end of life recyclable
Keeping Road Users Safe
As the sector evolves, weight, efficiency and safety are future-proof qualities of any vehicle irrespective of a cars price tag, intelligence or level of automation.
Automotive cushioning components, are amongst the most important safety innovations made by the automotive industry.
Side Impact Protection
Side Impact Protection (SIPs) and Bumper Cores in moulded black EPP are a key component for making the cars we drive today safer for drivers, passengers and pedestrians.
Expanded foam assists energy management in vehicles which is a major contributor towards passenger safety.
Tool Pods, Trays and Boot Fillers
EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) is the ideal for boot fillers and tool pods/trays within the automotive industry due to the durability and lightweight nature of the material.
