Foam technology

Foam technology

Together with you, the foam technology team creates high-quality EPS packaging or EPP packaging from particle foam. We shape your product requirements into sustainable foam solutions by combining design, materials and technology. Supported by our broad and versatile materials portfolio, we create the optimum moulded part for every application, taking into account the highest quality standards, and there are virtually no limits in terms of design freedom.

Our foam technology has foams, with specific properties, entirely tailored to your intended use: soft as a cushion, hard as wood, flame retardant, antistatic, conductive, coloured or bio-based.
