Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)

Expanded polystyrene is an environmentally friendly closed-cell foam with excellent insulation and damping properties; an ideal material for insulation and packaging applications.
  • Odourless
  • Non allergic
  • Does not harbour micro-organisms.
  • Thermal and mechanical properties remain unaffected by moisture.
  • The insulation value of EPS doesn’t diminish over time (permanent R-Value)
  • CFC (chlorofluorocarbons) free
  • Produced in type FR (flame retarding) material for building applications
  • May be recycled — look for the number 6 recycle symbol
EPS may be moulded to complex shapes or blocks. Moulded blocks are processed further using sophisticated hot-wire equipment, the bulk of production being towards insulation board. EPS's versatility, both in terms of its physical properties, design possibilities and workability makes it suitable for a large variety of insulating, architectural, protective and technical products surrounding us in our daily lives.
