EPE is expanded polystyrene plastics and it is also called pearl wool. EPE is a nun crosslinking obturator structure. It is a low density polyethylene (LDPE) as the main raw material extrusion generated high polyethylene foam products.
EPE consists of low density polyethylene resin produced by the physical foaming numerous independent bubbles. It is currently the world’s most advanced protective inner packaging materials. EPE has high elasticity and appearance white. Because it is completely independent of the bubble, it is lightweight, flexible, and can be bent to absorb the impact force dispersion, buffering effect, to overcome the ordinary Styrofoam fragile, deformation and recovery of faults. EPE has a thermal insulation , waterproof moisture-proof, heat insulation, sound insulation, anti friction, anti-aging, corrosion resistance ,etc. Anti-aging ability, has the very good workability, at the same time when joining anti-static agent pink EPE materials, it will have significant anti-static function. What’s more, when EPE together with PO film ,aluminum film, woven products and so on materials, can also increase the tear strength and ultraviolet-proof function. EPE is a kind of environmental-production material and can recycle. And more importantly, it has a strong shock, heat preservation and good plasticity and toughness ,recycling, fight bump force strong, and many other advantages, also has the very good chemical resistance. It is the ideal substitute of traditional packing materials. EPE has been widely used in product packaging, such as computers, electrical appliances, high-grade furniture, leather goods, handbags, shoes and so on. Especially the upscale handicrafts packaging, EPE together with other high-grade decorative cloth, flannelette, has the luxurious air, does not lose its good resistance to impact protection effect and it will be the development tendency of packaging etc in the future.
EPE (Expandable Polyethylene) is also called pearl wool.
Features: small density, good flexibility, high response rates; anti-shock performance is better than the polystyrene plastic; Independent air bubble structure, low surface bibulous; Good permeability; Anti-acid、anti-alkali, salt, oil and other organic solvent corrosion, good aging resistance; Don’t flow at high temperature and low temperature brittle fracture.
EPE is widely used in electronic appliances, instrumentation, computers, audio, medical equipment, work-managing machine box, lighting, crafts, glass, ceramics, electrical appliances, furniture, alcohol and gift packaging, metal products, toys, melon, leather shoes the inner packaging, daily necessities and many other products packaging. After joining anti-static agent and flame retardants, it will show its excellent performance observably.
EPE is also widely used for elastic lining bags, protective pad aquaculture insulation, insulation materials, insulation materials, agricultural industrial production of floating equipment, sports goods, water rescue equipment operation, family, hotel floor decoration, packing and so on. The tubes are widely used in air conditioning, baby stroller, children’s toys, furniture and other industries.
EPE and all kinds of fabric adhesive products are all kinds of vehicles and the good of the bedroom decorate material inside. EPE and aluminum foil or aluminum plating film composite products has excellent anti infrared ultraviolet ability. They are cold storage of chemical equipment, camping equipment and vehicle shading substitute.
EPE electronic product engineering is a new occupation in the electronics industry, which is responsible for new products.
EPE is hard to recycle because of the high elasticity, we will use bigger motor to crush the EPE blocks into small pieces and then extrude the material to the molding head, on the EPS compactor molding head there are heaters to heat the surface of the EPE material to melt the material into the block, then you will get the EPE block which surface is melted.
The customer can also use the hot melting machine to recycle the EPE material, similar as the cold compactor, the EPE hot melting machine is with the crusher first with the two bigger motors, and extrude with the screw with the heater to heat the material into block.
The EPE compactor and hot melting machinery can deal the material both and hot melting machine can get the material in higher density, the EPE compactor machine is in less polluted.
