Energy-efficient buildings and high-quality living spaces cannot be imagined without expanded polystyrene [EPS]. In developed countries, the situation is such that 90% of all facades are insulated with expanded polystyrene. In most thermal insulation systems, styrofoam is irreplaceable due to its exceptional properties. We use it wherever necessary to execute thermal and sound insulation of walls, roofs and floors and in other parts of building structures.

The investment in styrofoam (EPS) thermal insulation from an energy standpoint is paying off in a relatively short time. Styrofoam is not disturbed by water and humidity from the environment, as the cells are “welded” under the pressure of hot steam and therefore no additional (harmful) binders are needed. The term “styrofoam” has become synonymous with expanded polystyrene insulation boards, known as EPS. The properties of the EPS raw material are such that the granules at high temperatures increase their volume up to 60 times. In the manufacturing process, high pressures are created diromg expansion in the mold. For this reason, as well as the presence of high temperature and water vapor, the material is welded (joined) together without binders harmful to human health.

The space between the “welded” cells provides the panels with extraordinary vapor permeability and low thermal conductivity due to the stationary air, which is such an excellent insulator. In addition, it is environmentally friendly and is the only 100% recyclable thermal insulation material that contains only one polymer and has no additional binders and impregnations. Given the vapor permeability, it is much better than wood. Due to all these properties, styrofoam is classified as an universal thermal insulation material.

Prednosti

  • excellent thermal and acoustic insulator with excellent mechanical properties 
  • it does not change shape and properties over the life cycle like some other insulation materials
  • styrofoam insulation is suitable for the complete building (foundations, walls, roofs)
  • it is ideal for the construction of low energy and passive houses
  • styrofoam has 2 times higher vapor permeability than wood; µEPS = 35 › µWOOD = 70 
  • all building styrofoam is self-extinguishing, in the façade system with high class of reaction to fire B-d1
  • styrofoam retains its superior properties throughout the life of the building (60 years and over) 
  • low carbon dioxide emissions in terms of thermal power needed
  • simple to process (grinding, cutting, shaping)
  • production of special shapes and formats
  • EPS granules - aggregate for lightweight concrete

Did you know?

EPS 150 construction styrofoam has a compressive strength of 150 kPa, which means that it can withstand a load of 15 tons/m2 with a deformation of 10%. The boards are suitable for installation in floors and warm flat roofs with elevated continuous load up to incredible 3000 kg/m2 (garages, boiler rooms, lounges, service areas, cold storages,...).

Reasons to buy

  • mechanically resistant to storms, floods and various leaks 
  • 20 - 30% cheaper execution of facade system compared to other insulation systems
  • Excellent class B-d1 of reaction to fire in facade systems
  • Rapid rate of return
  • Styrofoam does not change its properties with age, water during fire interventions doesn’t affect it much
