EPP packaging is for industrial use. It fixes and holds loose parts during handling and transport. Other materials with similar loading capacity and resistance are quite heavy. EPP packaging weighs only a quarter from the standard plastic packaging. Thus, EPP molded packaging is comfortable to maneuver. The low weight saves fuel consumption. Consequently, the shipping costs decrease.
EPP packaging provides insulation against the influence of moisture and temperature fluctuations. It is reusable and can be washed or cleaned up upon need. Unique stacking systems are available to prevent contamination. Additionally, companies can benefit from its professional look. The robust appearance values when product presentation is significant.
What is EPP packaging?
EPP packaging is a non-deformable logistic solution. It consists of expanded small plastic beads. These beads are welded together into complex-shaped packaging. The resulting packaging offers an outstanding strength-to-weight ratio. The solution distinguishes itself by impact resistance. Such features ensure high protection for fragile parts and components. EPP is most suitable for items that are subject to mechanical stress.
As a plastic foam, the material is equally soft, elastic and hard. Such properties offer shock absorption and durability. In addition, it has a good chemical resistance. Companies can reuse EPP packaging several times due to its strength. This advantage brings a high-added value to the supply chain. At the end of the project, expanded polypropylene packaging is recyclable.

EPP packaging applications
Reusable EPP packaging offers dimensional accuracy and impact resistance. Consequently, it minimizes breakage and damage. The high packing density and extended use highlight it as a valuable packaging solution. The range of characteristics makes molded EPP suitable for almost any industrial application. The protective features pair with vast design possibilities. The result is a maximum packaging efficiency.
Compared to packaging from other materials, particle foam packaging is very light. This reduces the overall load weight in the transport vehicles. Operators also benefit from it. The reason is that they perform a lower physical effort. Additionally, they increase their work efficiency. The placement and removal of goods is smooth and safe.
A higher material density makes EPP customized packaging more durable than EPS packaging. The mechanical properties ensure a safe packing. This is useful for delicate or painted parts and components. Many applications include vehicle and electronic industries. In automotive, they protect the auto parts’ visible surfaces. In the electronic industry, some examples include inverters or solar collectors. Other applications refer to flat glass and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning).
Companies use EPP protective packaging in intralogistics as well. They prefer it primarily for small-part manufacturing. The reason is a simplified handling between different production stations. They can use the EPP-tailored packaging for many production cycles. Consequently, they reduce internal costs. The solution can consist of stackable EPP packaging boxes. We can support our customers with EPP trays and inlays as well.
