An expanded polypropylene (EPP), BASF’s foam Neopolen P features improved insulating performance for heating technology. The metallic-gray Neopolen P 9335 mg is noted for its thermal insulation, which, according to the company, is 10% better than standard EPP. With its versatile properties, foamed Neopolen P molded parts are able to perform several functions at the same time. This material presents new design options for devices such as heat exchangers and solar storing units. Neopolen P 9335 mg can be used to foam highly resilient, elastic-molded parts that replace conventional metal or injection-molded housings. Without any elaborate mold design, undercuts can be produced in the foam component easily and cost-effectively. This combination of properties, which also includes low water absorption and good resistance to chemicals, makes it suitable for a range of applications including in vehicles.
