The PE and PP foam materials produced are used extensively in various markets, such as construction (for thermal insulation of the "premium" segment, for civil engineering and renovation, for thermal insulation) and packaging (engineering packaging, use as damping and protective packaging for household appliances and dishes), light industry, automotive (sound insulation for individual parts of the car, protection of car bodies from chips and scratches during the transportation), food or in special projects (insulation of metal roofs, thermal insulation of hot water supply pipes, "Thermal bridge" in aluminum profile systems for windows and doors).

The PE and PP foam material of low or high densities produced is very versatile and totally recyclable. With advanced FAP’s technology PCR (post-consumer recycled) granules can newly be put in the productive cycle up to 100% = waste-free production = thus helping to create a circular economy in foam production.


The main properties of non cross-linked EPE and EPP foam materials

  • Environmentally friendly product does not contain adhesives, does not emit toxins, odourless, dust-free, CFC-free, Low VOC
  • 100% recyclable and reusable, waste-free production
  • High thermal insulation characteristics (close to air)
  • Resistant to aggressive environments, to mould, moisture, oils, gasoline
  • Chemically inert
  • Very easy to install
  • Durable and chemical resistant
  • Air- and watertight
  • Resistant to pressing and tearing
  • Anti-scratch and shock resistant
  • Elastic and strong


Our machines are designed to produce and process polyethylene (EPE) and polypropylene foam (EPP).

These materials are ideal insulators, using in the construction industry thanks to high technical requirements as inside/outside excellent heat/sound/thermal insulation and indoor waterproofing.

PE foam with thicknesses of 0.5 - 100 mm and densities 16 - 300 kg/m3

Example of Final Applications: a substrate for leveling the floor before laying laminate or other floor coverings, internal wall insulation, insulation for industrial air conditioning systems, vibration and sound insulation in concrete screeds, insulation in hangars, cold storage warehouses and containers.

PP foam with thicknesses of 1 - 10 mm and densities 25 - 200 kg/m3

Example of Final Applications: reflective and thermal insulation in rooms with high temperatures, reflective insulation for underfloor heating, vibration and sound insulation in concrete screeds.




We design complete PE FOAM MACHINES that produce foam material of various thicknesses and densities.

Non cross-linked foam is a widely used paсking material appreciated by representatives of numerous industries. 

Light PE Foam Material in variuos forms (bags, formats, very high thickness planks) is a perfect solution, used extensively in the protective and shock absorbing packaging industry for surface protection, interleaving and cushioning.



With our FAP foam machines - innovative twin-screw extrusion lines it is possible to produce very low & high-density polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) foam for the automotive sector.

Example of Final Application:

PE foam Protective packaging during vehicles' transportation, Pe foam special profiles as protective and packaging solution.

PP foam sound insulation for individual parts of the car. PP foam can be thermoformed, used inside the vehicles. 


Special projects

Thanks to our Italian Foam Centre, we support companies to find innovative solutions in the production of expanded films (foams). 

With this project we present an absolutely new way to support foam producers in challenging innovative production targets. Finally FAP's long and rich international experience is at the complete disposal of the entire "Foam World".
