Tasks & Goals

We are dedicated to the industry!

We advocate the interests of the foamed plastics and plastics processing industries. In a network of European and national organisations, we influence political decisions and regulations and inform members about recent initiatives.

By collaborating in standardisation committees, we contribute to the development of norms and test procedures.

Within the association, companies find contact to and exchange with colleagues, raw material and machine manufacturers, large and small processors as well as institutes and service providers. This helps in finding the right supplier, partner and consultant for own products and developments.
