Several applications where personal comfort reigns also benefit of expanded polymers properties

Malleable and resilient, expanded polymers are amazing cushioning materials. Expanded polystyrene (EPS) beads are filling bean bag seats; molded expanded polypropylene (EPP) components are used as semi flexible and waterproof components for boat bench seats and sports equipments take advantage of expanded polyethylene (EPE) flexibility, lightness and low water absorption in addition of its inherent impact protection level.

Molded EPP panels are also used as playing surface underlayment on artificial soccer or football fields. They level the playing surface, ease rain water draining and help protection our athletes from injuries.

Design and scenery | Polymos

Thanks to its great malleability, reduced weight, and cost efficiency, EPS blocks and sheets, are ideal for temporary uses such as show scenes and storefronts, but also for design elements such as permanent business banners and advertising components. Expanded polystyrene is frequently used in the making of theatre and studio scenery and as decorative store window elements.


Freight | Polymos

By reason of their resilience, resistance and light weight, expanded polystyrene, polypropylene and polyethylene (EPE, EPP and EPE) are used extensively in transportation fields to protect the freight and improve carriers' fuel economy. Well-planned molded items allows efficient nesting and ease handling while optimizing space use. Freight weight reduction lowers energy consumption, truck wear, and air pollution.


Antistatic | Polymos

Our components provide weight reduction and protection protection against impacts and electrostatic charges that may damage electronic circuits or cause the explosion of combustible products. Some products and delicate devices require special protection against electrostatic shocks. Antistatic agents may be added to our expanded polymers to prevent electrostatic storage.
