EPP is widely used in the automotive industry where it reduces weight and improves vehicle economy, the material exhibits good technical properties and is 100% recyclable
White EPP has all the same qualities as black and coloured block. EPP has proven environmental performance. Independent results from a life cycle evaluation show that when calculating comparative carbondioxide (global warming potential), EPP provides green benefits 12 times that of its impact.
EPP is widely used in the automotive industry where it reduces weight and improves vehicle economy, the material exhibits good technical properties and is 100% recyclable.
