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
- 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.
