Protective cushions for household equipment TECHNICAL PARTS

Knauf Industries is known for its great experience in protective packaging solutions for domestic appliances and technical components for the HVACR systems market.

The materials used in the manufacture of our products are chosen according to the technical characteristics required for the protection and aesthetics of your products. The preservation of the environment is also a selection criteria.

Thanks to our ID lab team of experts and engineers in the creation of technical parts and protection systems, we work closely with our customers on the eco-design of their new white and brown product ranges.

The majority of our protective solutions and technical components are made of expanded polypropylene (EPP) and expanded polystyrene (EPS).

Knauf Industries develops its expertise in the following technologies:

  • Moulding and cutting of foams : expanded polypropylene EPP, expanded polystyrene EPS, graphite-coated foams and expanded polyethylene EPE
  • PP, PS, ABS, PC plastic injection
  • PU, PE foam cutting

For technical parts or packaging, Knauf Industries assists its customers and partners throughout their project:

  • In the creation phase with our ID Lab (design office, laboratory, prototyping centre)
  • In the industrial production phase in one of our 42 factories

– Our ID Lab, a department dedicated to research and development, takes up any design challenge put forward by our customers.

Eco-design is an integral part of our working methods, taking into account every stage of the product life cycle.

– Dedicated and experienced engineers work daily on the development of our materials and technologies to provide you with the most appropriate product.

– Our prototyping, testing and measurement facilities enable us to provide our customers with an ideal and validated final solution.



Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is one of the most versatile raw materials in the world, with an infinite number of possible uses. It is extremely lightweight with high strength, thanks to its remarkable mechanical properties. EPS can be transformed into a multitude of different shapes. It is therefore the ideal solution for your protective packaging.

For more details on the raw materials processed by Knauf Industries, please see our Expertise section.

Knauf Industries designs and manufactures bespoke closed-cell foam (EPS, EPP, Arcel, etc.) packaging solutions for goods protection, shipping and storage.

These solutions are developed by our ID Lab. It is equipped with design tools, a 3D scanner, a prototyping centre and a laboratory provided with test equipment for protective packaging qualification (vibrating table, inclined plane, etc.).


HVAC application system design is becoming increasingly complex. Saving energy and regulatory changes govern market demand. Combining energy efficiency and keeping production costs optimised is a priority. As such, we regularly develop product concepts combining the following features for our partners:

  • Thermal insulation
  • Soundproofing
  • Air- and water-tightness
  • Fire resistance
  • Surface aspects

Besides plastic injection already recognised for its benefits, various closed-cell foams are perfectly in line with market expectations. These materials combine thermal insulation, a lightweight design, and mechanical strength.

They make it possible to design high-performance units that are easy to implement on production lines.

Expanded polypropylene EPP, for example, with its mechanical properties and resilience makes it possible to replace conventional sheet metal and overlay insulation manufacturing solutions advantageously.

We design, develop and produce technical and protective parts on an industrial scale.
