POLYSTYRENE BLOCKS

Polystyrene sheets, slabs, and blocks are commonly used as insulation and packaging material due to their lightweight, low cost, and good insulation properties. Here are some of the purposes for which polystyrene sheets, slabs, and blocks are commonly used:

1. Insulation: Polystyrene sheets, slabs, and blocks are often used as insulation material in construction applications, such as roofs, walls, and floors. They are lightweight, easy to install, and offer good thermal insulation, which can help to reduce energy costs and improve indoor comfort.
2. Packaging: Polystyrene sheets, slabs, and blocks are widely used as packaging material due to their excellent shock absorption properties. They can protect delicate and fragile items during shipping and transportation, preventing damage and breakage.
3. Display and Signage: Polystyrene sheets, slabs, and blocks can be easily cut, shaped, and painted, making them ideal for use in display and signage applications. They can be used to create eye-catching and lightweight displays, signs, and letters for advertising and promotional purposes.
4. Model Making: Polystyrene sheets, slabs, and blocks are also used for model making due to their lightweight and easy-to-shape properties. They can be used to create architectural models, dioramas, and other types of models.
5. Arts and Crafts: Polystyrene sheets, slabs, and blocks are a popular material for arts and crafts projects, such as making Halloween decorations, foam balls, and other craft items.

Overall, polystyrene sheets, slabs, and blocks are a versatile material with many applications in construction, packaging, display and signage, model making, and arts and crafts.

Polystyrene Sheets, Slabs & Blocks

The polystyrene produced is one of the thermoplastic materials sometimes called linear polymers. These are materials that soften on the applications of heat and harden as they cool.

Advantages of EPS:

Thermal insulation
Moisture resistant
High durability and versatility in strength
Recyclable
Easily cut into different shapes and sizes
Extremely lightweight
Shock absorbing

The expanded foam (known as EPS) is produced as small beads containing a pentane blowing agent which is expanded by treatment with steam to form pre-foam of the required density. The pre-foam is then fed into moulds and more heat (steam) is applied. This heat fuses the beads together to produce items in a variety of shapes and sizes or to make blocks for cutting into sheets and other products.
