EPE foam sheet production equipment

EPE foamboard is a soft packing material,with good shock absorption, vibration resistance, light, resilient hard to form, with easy shape reconstruction. –It preserves temperature, is moisture-resistant, heavy-abradable, and rust resistant. It has good resistance against static elecrticity, that's why EPE are widely used for packing domestic electronics (semi-conductors, TV sets, refrigerators, computers, cell phones, etc), measuring devices, breakable goods (such as lamps and glass).

2. Production.
First PE and other raw materials are mixed, fed to the bin of the extruder, there they are melted and mixed. Simultaneously, foaming agent (butan) and melted monoglycerides are fed to the middle part of the extruder to be mixed with the preliminary melted plastics. The materials are extruded and molded using head and mold, then they are cooled, stretched, levelled and wound.
