Engineers and designers realise how the unique material properties of our expanded foam materials can offer multiple benefits to new products. Did you know Expanded Polystyrene is 100% fully recyclable and is actually made up of 98% air?
Here are some examples of current consumer products we manufacture and the key material benefits that helped their creation.
Expanded foam is the ideal medium for designers and inventors to create new products rich in features that may not be achievable in other materials. With new texturing technology and colour options available, the whole product can be designed without the need for covers or skins. From the proof of concept, design and prototyping stage through to full production we can help you develop your ideas and turn them into a real product.
For the early stages of your project our services include in-house CNC milling from CAD and hand crafting first designs, this is a very affordable way of proving and testing a design prior to ordering tooling and moving into production.
When researching and developing a new product consider how you can exploit our material benefits to improve your products performance.
The HOTBIN composter exploits the excellent thermal properties of Expanded Polypropylene, insulating the compost heap expedites the rate at which you make compost.
The Mani is a British made child’s swimming aid that exploits the buoyancy, surface texturing and bright playful colouring of Expanded Polypropylene.
An Expanded Polystyrene bee hive is lighter, more affordable and has superior thermal properties over a wooden hive.
