We produce Products in Expanded Polystyrene (EPS).
PROPERTIES and BENEFITS Polystyrene is obtained from styrene monomer, derived from petroleum. Through the polymerization of styrene, polystyrene is obtained in the form of small pearls; putting them in contact with water vapor at a temperature above 90 ° C and pentane, a gaseous hydrocarbon, expand up to 20-50 times their initial volume. The next phase, called sintering, is the welding process of the expanded polystyrene beads which, subjected again to the action of water vapor, join together to form a homogeneous block of foam material. This forms a closed-cell structure that retains air inside, preventing convective motions and thus giving expanded polystyrene its excellent thermal insulation properties.
