Construction & Insulation applications
EPS resins are among the most popular materials for building and construction applications. EPS foams are used in closed cavity walls, roofs, floor insulation. With its excellent price/performance ratio EPS is also used in pontoons and road construction such as road foundations, void forming, flotation, drainage, impact sound insulation, modular construction elements, cellular bricks, etc. They exploit the excellent mechanical properties of EPS combined with short construction/assembly time and low cost maintenance.
EPS has long been known as a versatile and cost-effective solution for food and goods packaging. Food and drinks can be safely packed with EPS packaging, in which the decomposition of food is prevented. A combination of good packaging, refrigeration and transportation ensures that less than 2% of food is lost through decomposition. Also it’s the primary choice for consumer electronics packaging.
