First step of the process is known as pre-expansion phase where raw material resin is used to produce EPS is received. At this stage the raw material is found in small units which range around 0.5 and 1.5 mm in diameter. Then these small units are sent for further process where they are expanded as per requirements of the final product. At this stage it may be expanded upto 50 times of its original size. And this is its one of the best advantage and one of the basic reasons of its so widespread usage.
Now it is passed through required level of heat so as to give it desired shape and size. One should make sure that the material at this stage is sustainable and stable in nature so that it can be formulated in highest quality product.
Now comes moulding phase where loosely expanded units are formed into solid structure. The structure’s strength and quality are depended on the technical approach adopted in the moulding process so this stage is said to be one of the most vital stage in EPS Moulding production cycle.
Once the material has been passed through moulding process, final shape is given. Hence this phase is known as shape moulding phase where end product gets its final look and feel.
