What is MPP Foam?

MPP (Microcellular Polypropylene) is a closed-cell polypropylene (PP) thermoplastic foam material with a cell size of less than 100 μm. It is produced using supercritical fluid foaming technology and is a renewable polymer foam.

MPP (Microcellular Polypropylene) Foam

Advantages of MPP Foam

  • Rigidity and Toughness: Existing foam materials are either hard and brittle, or soft and tough, and it is difficult to have both rigidity and toughness. The microporous polypropylene foam material has both rigidity and toughness, which complements the deficiency of the performance of the existing foam material.
  • Environmental Protection: The MPP foaming process is clean and pollution-free, and it can be recycled and reused. It is an environmentally friendly product.
  • High Temperature Resistance: The thermal deformation temperature of PP foam material is much higher than that of PS and PU foam materials.
  • Thermal Insulation: The micron-sized cells effectively reduce the convection of gas in the foam, thereby effectively reducing the heat transfer caused by air convection.
  • Lightweight: The density of MPP foam is generally below 50kg/cm³.
  • Waterproof: Micron-sized cells make its extremely low water absorption.

Basic Structure of MPP Foam Sandwich Panels

The skin of the MPP sandwich panel used for the RV is mostly fiberglass or aluminum sheets, which is compressed and molded together with the MPP foam using special glue as the adhesive.
