The material of the child safety seat is mainly two parts, one part is the hardware part, which mainly refers to the frame part. The better products are all made of PP (polypropylene). For example, this is the seat frame of a domestic brand Jinbeizi. This is an edible plastic material. Polypropylene has good heat resistance. It will not be deformed at 150 degrees under the condition of no external force. It has excellent heat resistance and corrosion resistance, which makes it more resistant. Impact ability, and very environmentally friendly and pure, will not affect the child's body, the use of this material in the seat to protect the child more secure. However, this type of material is more expensive.

The other part refers to the seat filler, which is generally the soft part. The general filler is EPP, EPS, EPE three shock-absorbing materials; there is also PU sponge, which is a high-density sponge, and some honeycombs Or fibrous materials are generally installed under or behind the seat. Their main function is to absorb energy, as well as increase comfort and breathability.

The following briefly introduces the next three shock absorption materials:

EPE/EPS/EPP are the three most commonly used shock-absorbing materials in the manufacture of child safety seats. Most safety seats add a certain thickness of EPE/EPS/EPP shock-absorbing materials to the head and side wings. In the event of an accidental impact, the high-density air bubbles in these materials act as a buffer like an airbag, thereby protecting children and reducing injuries. The three materials of EPE/EPS/EPP have the functions of sound insulation, heat preservation and shock absorption, but due to their different materials, there are certain differences in performance.

EPE is a new type of environmentally friendly material, the English full name is Expandable Polyethylene, which is the pearl cotton we usually talk about. It is made of low-density polyethylene grease through a physical foaming process to produce a non-crosslinked closed-cell structure, which has good shock absorption properties. EPE can be recycled, allowing a certain amount of EPE recycled materials (70%) to be proportioned in the manufacturing process, so it is more environmentally friendly and also helps reduce manufacturing costs. This material is widely used in many domestic seats.

EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) foam is called expandable polystyrene in Chinese. This material contains 3-6 million independent air-tight bubbles per square meter. The air volume is more than 98%, and its shock absorption and impact resistance are good. It is also very widely used, such as some motorcycle headgear and so on. This material can also be modified to enhance its strength and resistance, but it will produce harmful gases when burned, and it cannot be recycled, so its environmental performance is poor. Because of its moderate cost, this material is widely used in domestic seats and some international brands.

EPP is a highly crystalline polymer material with excellent performance. Its scientific name is Expanded Polypropylene. Its strength, temperature resistance, and environmental performance are higher than the above two. It is the future development trend of cushioning materials in the future. Due to the limitation of the cost of this material, in the field of safety seats, it is generally only found on some international high-end brand child safety seat products, and this material is also useful in a few outstanding domestic brand seats.
