What is EPS?

EPS (expandable polystyrene) is a rigid cellular plastic, which comes in various shapes and applications. The final product is beads up to 3 millimeters in diameter, which are destined for expansion.

In the process of transformation, these beads increase up to 50 times their original size. When expanded, the beads are composed of 95% to 98% air and only 2% to 5% polystyrene.

EPS end products are inert, non-toxic, do not pollute the soil, water or air. They are 100% reusable and recyclable and can even return to the condition of raw material.

Key features of the EPS:

• Format versatility and ease
• Ease of handling
• Dimensional stability
• High resistance

• Excellent thermal insulator
• Light material
• Mechanical strength
• Shock absorption


EPS and the environment:

• 100% recyclable.
• Non-toxic product.
• Does not contain CFCs.
• Does not contribute to the formation of methane gas (greenhouse effect)

• In contact with the ground, it does not present risks to the groundwater or the subsoil.
• Emission of VOC compounds (volatile organic compounds) in compliance with building regulations.
