What is polystyrene?

We benefit daily from products manufactured from polystyrene plastic, including thermal insulation for construction applications and cushion packaging for industrial and consumer applications.

There are two common types of polystyrene foam: extruded polystyrene and expanded polystyrene (EPS). Most food service applications, including meat trays, egg cartons, hamburger clam shells, foam plates and trays, are extruded polystyrene. However, the common coffee cup is expanded polystyrene as is almost all industrial cushion packaging. This is the cellular white molded foam that is used to package televisions, stereos, computers, delicate electronic equipment and other fragile industrial and consumer products.

Both expanded polystyrene (EPS) and extruded polystyrene are used extensively as thermal insulation in industrial, commercial and residential construction. .

What is expanded polystyrene (EPS)?

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is a thermoplastic, closed-cell, lightweight, rigid-foam plastic. The low thermal conductivity, high compressive, strength and excellent shock absorption properties of EPS make it an ideal material for the application demand for which it is used.
STYROFOAM INSULATION Foam Technologies uses the latest technology and equipment to manufacture a variety of standardized and customized products from its EPS.

Does EPS foam give off toxic emissions when incinerated?

No. EPS foam's chemical makeup consists of carbon and hydrogen. When completely combusted, it gives off water vapor, carbon dioxide and trace levels of ash the same as paper.
