EVA foam is now more common, such as EVA mats. The EPP material is a new type of foam, and it is on the road of continuous improvement.
1. Both EPP foam and EVA foam have good damping cushioning effect, but EPP foam is slightly harder in material, lower in elasticity and cushioning performance than EVA material, and EVA material is not easy to recover under long-term pressure and is easily deformed.
2. EPP materials use high temperatures and low temperatures of minus 40 to 130 degrees Celsius, while EVA materials range from minus 170 degrees to 105 degrees. Both have their own advantages and are more suitable for applying EPP materials at high temperatures. Improvements in EPP materials have a wider range of properties.
3.EPP material is non-toxic and tasteless. It does not precipitate any toxic substances in high temperature or low temperature, and it can be degraded as a real environmentally friendly foam.Our Eva foam products are also ECO FREE and of no unpleasant smell, but it is not as degradable as EPP products .So in a word ,the EPP products is a little more ECO friendly than EVA products.
4. When the 2 material use in toys. Please refer to our catalogs of of our EVA and EPP catalogue.
