Effect of Compression Speed on Static Compression Properties of Foams
Expandable polystyrene and expandable polyethylene foams are frequently used in packaging of products. The study on their cushioning properties is important for the design of the transport package. The effect of compression speed and multiple reloading on the cushioning properties of HDEPS, LDEPS and HDEPE was studied in this paper. The results indicate that the cushioning properties of HDEPS and LDEPS are affected obviously by the compression speed, but the change of the cushioning properties for LDEPE was unconspicuous with the compression speed. LDEPE appeared obvious fatigue after twice reloads.
