Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is a foam-like plastic made of polystyrene. Commonly used as insulation for walls, foundations and roofing, there are many benefits to selecting EPS products. It does not rot, go moldy or decompose. Other characteristics worth highlighting about EPS are that it is lightweight, resistant to humidity and its capacity to absorb impacts. EPS can be fully reused to form blocks and it can also be recycled to make raw materials for other types of products. Furthermore, as it has high calorific properties and does not contain any CFC gases, it can be safety incinerated in energy recovery plants.
