Q. Why would you use our Polystyrene Block over other materials?
A. When contrasted with other insulating materials expanded polystyrene has the best performance and the lowest thermal insulation U-vales.
- Our block is available in a variety of densities so you can chose the grade that best suits your application
- We can cut block to your specification on our specialist hot wire equipment
Q. How well does expanded polystyrene insulate?
A. Expanded polystyrene insulation actually exceeds building regulations and can be tailors to your requirements. When used correctly in wall insulation U-Values as low as 0.07W/m²K can be achieved.
Q. I have heard EPS (expanded polystyrene) is highly flammable, is that correct?
No that is a common misconception and there have been several convictions for deceptive and unfair marketing relating to claims regarding EPS and flammability.
In fact; all our EPS blocks are moulded using flame retardant bead.
