STYRO beads commonly known as Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) beads, It have multiple applications in the packing & packaging, agriculture and construction industries. STYRO beads are lightweight, white color, fire retardant, pearl-shaped, closed cell Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) beads, the diameter of the beads normally ranges from 3 to 12 mm with an apparent density of 8-15 Kg/m3. STYRO beads come in two types, virgin and re-ground. Virgin beads are perfectly smooth and spherical in shape, while re-ground beads are made by grounding large blocks of polystyrene (Styrofoam) into small beads, making them an environment-friendly option for recycling.
STYRO beads have many practical applications and benefits, making them a valuable resource for many industries. These are widely used in the construction industry by ready-mix suppliers for lightweight screed production. These beads are also mixed with concrete to increase their thermal rating and reduce their weight per cubic meter, resulting in significant savings in structural costs. These beads are versatile and offer many environmental advantages, such as lightness, thermal insulation, and non-toxicity. They can be used for soil improvement, free draining and enhanced soil aeration, making them suitable for potting and plantation applications, as well as for use around planting beds.
STYRO Beads also used for packing materials and as filling for bean bags. As a packing material, Styrofoam beads provide excellent cushioning and shock absorption, making them ideal for protecting fragile or delicate items during shipping and handling. They are lightweight, durable and can be easily molded to fit around irregularly shaped items. In addition, Styrofoam beads are resistant to moisture and do not easily break down, making them an effective choice for long-term storage.
As a filling material for bean bags, STYRO beads provide a comfortable and supportive seating option. They can conform to the shape of the user’s body, providing even weight distribution and reducing pressure points. Styrofoam beads are also lightweight and affordable, making them a popular choice for filling bean bags.
