Expanded polypropylene (EPP)

is a particle foam with a polypropylene basis. In contrast to EPS, EPP is supplied without an expanding agent, so that subsequent agent-based expansion is not possible. The core of EPP resumes its original form, even if it was compressed. Polypropylene is odourless, kind to the skin and physiologically safe. It is used in many fields of medicine as well as in the pharmaceutical and the food industries.
