PIOCELAN is a hybrid solution in the same family of particle foams as EPS. This hybrid particle foam is created by combining two polymers: PS and PE.
‘PIOCELAN offers significant structural stability, can be shaped into any form, and possesses powerful shock-absorbent properties,’ explains Jeroen Scheffer, Sales Manager with the particle foam engineers at HSV. Jeroen continues: ‘Thanks to this particle foam, we can design sustainable solutions with low environmental impact for our clients.’

Key features of PIOCELAN
‘Compared to other particle foams such as EPP and EPS, PIOCELAN has powerful shock-absorbent properties,’ adds Bjorn Plant, Sales Engineer with the particle foam engineers at HSV. ‘This type of particle foam has greater structural stability, making it possible to produce a moulded component with less of this raw material while retaining functionality.’

PIOCELAN and applications
Bjorn about PIOCELAN: ‘It is ideally suited for such purposes as protecting products during transport.’ You may find PIOCELAN in various applications, for example as:
- Protective packaging for transporting industrial products and glass items
- Shock-absorbent packaging for LCD modules, computers and laptops for the high-tech product industry
- Home delivery containers for frozen products and insulating containers / boxes for beer transport and storage
- Transport trays for automotive car parts, such as shock absorbers, door panels, bumpers, etc.
PIOCELAN is sustainable, and application of this particle foam in the logistics chain contributes to reducing environmental impact
Sustainable advantages of PIOCELAN
‘PIOCELAN is lightweight, has high rigidity, and is impact-resistant, which offers advantages in terms of sustainability,’ Jeroen explains. ‘Thanks to the multidimensional properties of this particle foam, breakage and transport damages are kept to a minimum and safety performance is significantly improved. Besides this protection, PIOCELAN contributes to lower fuel consumption when applied in the logistics chain, and that benefits the environment.
Producing shaped components with the particle foam PIOCELAN requires less raw material, without sacrificing beneficial functional properties. As a result, products manufactured in this sustainable particle foam are also appealing in terms of procurement considerations.’
