Expanded Polyethylene (EPE)
Expanded Polyethylene (EPE/EP) is polyethylene based foam made of many tiny cells averaging from 0.3mm to 1.0mm diameter in size .It is a flexible, light weight resilient and cushioning packaging material. Expanded polyethylene has certain superior features, which give it an edge over other packaging materials. They are discussed below are given below.
Expanded polyethylene is highly flexible and hence does not break or crack during any amount of extensive handling and transportation.
EPE is able to undergo deformation on application of load and to recover repeatedly and almost complete on removal of the applied load.
Since EPE is a Non-Hydroscopic material. There is absolutely no scope of lowering value of the properties like cushioning value, resilience, flexibility and corrosion. EPE is almost water proof material.
Thermal Insulation :
EPE being a plastic and especially of foam is an excellent thermal insulation material for low temperature application.
Expanded polyethylene exhibiting zero abrasion property becomes most suitable for packing smooth precision and highly polished surface product.
EPE having no water absorption and a very low density, exhibits excellent property of buoyancy.
EPE is insert to almost all chemicals including strong acids but exception being toluene benzene and carbon tetrachloride.
EPE is non hydroscopic and does not have any nutritional value hence does not attract insects likes ants, cockroaches and termites and does not allow moulds or fungus to develop on it.
EPE is naturally antistatic and does not attract dust and special antistatic grade sheets are also can be made for packing of electronics so as to protect them from electric charge from environment.
EPE is completely non toxic product eliminating any harmful effects on the product packed.
Working Temperature Range:
Expanded polyethylene allows a working temperature range from -50oC to 80oC
As can be seen from above properties, expanded polyethylene is a wonder packaging and thermal insulating material as against the conventional materials wood wool, paper shaving, craft paper, honey comb, rubberized coin, PU foam, thermocol and air bubble film.
