Fish Providing protection and insulation, EPS boxes keep fish and seafood fresh during transit.
Fresh produce Delicate fruits, vegetables and mushrooms are protected from bruising in EPS boxes. The boxes insulate to maintain optimum freshness, are resistant to moisture and do not break apart in unfavourable conditions.
Cookers, fridges, dish/washing machines are cost effectively protected by cleverly-designed, minimal EPS packaging, often used in combination with other plastics. The result is improved warehouse handling, reduced returns and customer satisfaction when a product arrives at their home in perfect condition.
Computers, TVs and other fragile, high value items are protected by EPS packs, not only from being dropped in transit, but also from damage whilst they are stacked in the warehouse.
Automotives EPS moulds are individually designed to fill complex voids in floors, door and roof linings. This allows the designer to change the height and shape of the interior.
Electrical EPS protects against dust, damp and rough handling. It can be given antistatic coating to protect sensitive microchips.
Medical & Pharmaceutical Life-saving items such as vaccines and internal organs are kept safe and insulated when transported in EPS packs.
Horticulture Plants are raised in EPS trays because they retain warmth,maintain an ambient temperature and are water resistant. And, their rigidity makes them easy to handle.
Bicycle Helmets The same shock absorption properties of EPS make it perfect for bicycle helmets and infant car seats.
Inspiration Sir Paul Smith, one of UK’s top designers, used a complex EPS mould to create unusual covers for his book, You Can Find Inspiration In Everything.
Housing EPS moulds are used to form a Lego-style framework into which concrete is poured. Buildings can be erected quickly and enjoy high levels of acoustic and thermal insulation.
Assuming the ideal cushion is completely compressed, that impact force and deceleration remain constant during deformation and, after deformation the pack is at rest, then under ideal conditions G=h/d. The theoretical term G then describes the quality of the material, and is related to the actual quality per unit volume of a real material by the factor C, where C = Gact/G = Gact/h/d. The potential energy of a dynamic load (e) that must be applied to a cushioning material to obtain a given value of C is given by e=mgh/Ad where A is length x width of the pack.
Minimum values for C and e are asterisked. Figures for the cushioning material are listed in the table and show an EPS mould provides the best cushioning
