EPO foam (Expanded Polyolefin foam) is a type of foam material made of polyolefin-based polymers. Whether or not it can be melted by a hot melt machine depends on the specific type and composition of the foam.
Generally, EPO foam has a low melting point and can be melted by heat. However, the exact temperature required for melting and the process for doing so will depend on the specific type of EPO foam being used.
It’s important to note that not all foam melting equipment are suitable for melting EPO foam. Some foam melting equipment may generate excessive heat that can damage the foam, while others may not provide enough heat to melt it completely. It’s essential to consult the manufacturer’s guidelines for both the foam and the hot melt machine to ensure compatibility and proper usage.
In summary, EPO foam can be melted by a hot melt machine, but the specific process and temperature required will depend on the foam type, and it’s essential to use the appropriate hot melt machine and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines to avoid damaging the foam.
