EPE Foam Applications of Rapid Prototype

With the development of technology, foams are increasingly used in the rapid prototyping industry, such as EVA, EPS, EPP, PVC etc. Now we share some information of EPE to all.

What is EPE?

EPE (Expandable Polyethylene), is a expandable polyethylene, also known as pearl cotton. It is a non-crosslinked closed cell structure, which is a high foam polyethylene product extruded from low density polyethylene (LDPE).


Features of EPE:

1, Durable, light weight & non dusting

2, Flexible & elastic - Easy to cut, fabricate, wrap around, insert or seal

3, Can take care of multiple shocks unlike rigid foams

4, Non-toxic & odorless. No CFC/HCFC gases are used during production

5, 100% recyclable

6, Offers excellent resistance to moisture, fungi & chemicals

7, High buoyancy and relatively higher mechanical strength



Pearl cotton: ordinary pearl cotton, non-wax pearl cotton, special pearl cotton, encrypted pearl cotton, encryption plus hard pearl cotton, anti-static pearl cotton, PO coated pearl cotton, PE coated pearl cotton, aluminum foil pearl cotton, plating Color film is fitted with pearl cotton, pearl cotton, PS board (pearl board), KT board (advertising board), fireproof pearl cotton, and pearl cotton bridge.

EPE as a special shape: tubular, rod, L-shaped, U-shaped and various shaped materials, pearl cotton components, pearl cotton can also be processed into various sizes of pearl cotton bags after film coating.



EPE is widely used in electronic appliances, instrumentation, computers, audio, medical equipment, industrial control chassis, lighting, crafts, glass, ceramics, home appliances, painting, furniture, alcohol and gift packaging, hardware products, toys, fruits, shoes Packaging of various products such as inner packaging and daily necessities. Adding antistatic agent and flame retardant, it shows its excellent performance.
