Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is a lightweight, rigid, closed-cell insulation. It is an excellent material for packaging and for construction as it is a light rigid foam with good thermal insulation and high impact resistance.

Expandable Polystyrene (EPS) is available in several compressible strengths to withstand load and back-fill forces. This closed-cell structure provides minimal water absorption and low vapor permanence.

Commonly used as insulation for walls, foundations and roofing, there are many benefits to selecting EPS products:

  • Long-term R-Value (“R” is the resistance to heat flow)
  • Energy efficiency
  • Constant thermal resistance
  • Measurable energy savings
  • Strength
  • Sustainability
  • No growth of bacteria, nor will it decay over time
  • Dimensional stability
  • Chemical inertness
  • Low cost

Expandable Polystyrene is a cost efficient, high performing alternative to extruded (XPS) foam. EPS is the perfect choice for many insulation and construction applications.
