Expanded Polystyrene Foam (EPS) is derived from petrol via polymerization of styrene monomer and is a typical white colour thermoplactic material with closed stomas in foam form. There are also grey products in special production, where particules are processed toreflect the long beam of lights.
In EPS products obtained by swelling and mixing polystyrene particles, the gas used to swell the particles and get foamvis Pentane. An organic component Pentane changes places with the air in a short time after providing formation of many numbers of small pores. The released Pentage then turns into CO and H2O. With pentane released, the still air is trapped inside the many numbers of (3-6 billion in 1m3 EPS) small covered porous cells. 98% of the material consists of static and dry air and %2 is polystyrene.
Besides all these features, EPS is 100% recyclable, with no damage to the atmosphere and the ozone layer, an environmentally friendly material. Specific types of EPS can also be used even in the food goods packaging and are non-hazardous to human health.
EPS products are used extensively in the construction of thermal and sound insulation and packaging industry as plates, pipes or pre-shaped elements. EPS products have a wide range of usage, from the use as wall material in buildings, to cold storage insulation of cold regions in highway construction, the reinforcement of the floor, to the production of lifejackets for ships. It has unlimited area of usage where the lightness, resistance, shapability, and low thermal conductivity is important.
Resistant It can be shaped by heat. It has smooth surface. Resistant for bacteria texture. Its electricity isolation is superior.It holds moisture in low level. It doesn't contain the heat within itself.
