What is EPS?

For more than 70 years, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) has been facilitating peoples’ lives and contributing to a more sustainable future. It exhibits unique characteristics. They make it the most sustainable, efficient, and affordable solution for multiple specific insulation and packaging applications.


“EPS is 98% air and just 2% Polystyrene. We call it engineered air.”

How EPS is made?

When EPS beads are heated with steam, they expand to approximately forty times their original size. These beads can then be covered with steam once again and further processed in to different forms – for example, house insulation, bicycle helmets or fish boxes and much more.

This type of EPS consists of a large proportion of air 98 percent air, to be precise. A material that has been tried and tested over such a long time has proven to be outstanding. And our engineers are constantly working on new variations to improve its protection, its recyclability, its insulation properties even more.
