Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is used in packaging, building insulation and safety equipment. It is a highly valued product due to its durability, versatility, sterility, thermal insulation, shock absorbency and recyclability.
EPS is produced in a wide range of densities providing a varying range of physical properties. These are matched to the various applications where the material is used to optimise its performance and strength.
