With today’s intense focus on the environmental building goals of sustainability and energy efficiency, the proper use of building insulation is more important than ever.
One of the many uses of expanded polystyrene (EPS) and extruded polystyrene (XPS) is for highly effective commercial and residential insulation: roof insulation, underfloor insulation, ceiling insulation and wall insulation. Expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam is a closed-cell insulation that’s manufactured by “expanding” the polystyrene polymer. Expanded polystyrene is produced in block form which is then converted into a number of applications. Expanded polystyrene can be used in wall insulation and architectural profiles, void forms, protective packaging, cold storage, refrigeration units and sign writing displays.
