Yes.EPO (Expanded Polyolefin) materials can be shredded by EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) shredder machines. Although the acronyms EPS and EPO are similar, these are two different types of foam materials with distinct properties and compositions.


EPS is a thermoplastic, closed-cell foam that is made from polystyrene. It is a lightweight, rigid, and durable material that is commonly used in packaging, insulation, and construction applications. EPS shredder machines are designed specifically to shred and recycle EPS foam materials.


EPO, on the other hand, is a thermoplastic foam made from polyolefin resins, which include materials such as polyethylene and polypropylene. EPO has a more flexible and resilient texture than EPS and is often used in automotive and sports equipment applications.


Although the differences in their material properties and compositions, EPS shredder machines are suitable for shredding EPO materials. EPO materials require a different type of shredding machine that is specifically designed to handle polyolefin foam materials.

Therefore, it’s important to use the appropriate shredding equipment for the specific type of foam material being processed to ensure efficient and effective shredding and recycling.
