Interior and exterior car parts & safety gear including electric vehicle car parts
Being light, protective, and impact-absorbing, Kaneka’s expanded polypropylene-based foam particles, EPERAN-PP™, are widely used in the automotive industry for insulation, protection, weight reduction, and shock absorption of interior and exterior car parts. Examples are bumpers, sun visors, luggage compartment inserts, battery cover, knee padding, seat bracing, roof pillars, headrests, armrests, door panels, and much more.
As a solution to the challenges of new energy mobility, EPERAN-PP™ particle foam provides superior heat insulation properties for electric vehicle batteries, while at the same time functioning as a lightweight shock-absorbing material.
EPP car parts make a twofold contribution to environmental protection: they are reusable, and, given their low material weight, they contribute to reducing CO2 emissions.
