EPS is one of the lightest of all construction materials allowing ease of handling and faster construction times. Its outstanding thermal insulation properties and durability ensure performance throughout the full life time of the building/construction application in which it is used. EPS is mostly used in wall insulation, exterior wall insulation and ceiling heat prevention.
Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is a generic term for polystyrene and styrene copolymers that are expanded into a variety of useful products. The shock absorption properties and other qualities of EPS foam combined with customized molding capabilities, insulation properties, and ease of processing make it a high performance packaging material.
Used in thousands of different ways by individuals and businesses around the world, expanded polystyrene (EPS) is relied upon to provide superior performance in various foam product applications. As a closed-cell, rigid foam plastic, EPS relies on the use of a blowing agent to allow individual beads to be expanded from 2 to 50 times their original size. Whether used as protective packaging for fragile items during shipment, as wall and roof insulation in building applications, or even as a bicycle helmet, EPS is serving an important role in our everyday lives.
