EPS Foam Insulation

When it comes to insulation, you can’t beat polystyrene. EPS (expanded polystyrene) has been the number one choice for economy, performance and sustainability in the building industry for decades. It’s the leading solution for many construction projects, including roof, wall and underfloor insulation. At Koolfoam, we manufacture high-quality EPS cut to your specifications.

Why use EPS for insulation

EPS has a longstanding reputation for its exceptionally high insulation qualities. EPS is unique in that it gives a constant insulation value throughout the lifetime of a building. Whether you need under-floor, between-floor, walling or roofing insulation, polystyrene is the affordable and reliable solution.

Polystyrene is an extremely durable material. Thanks to its very low moisture absorption, it won't rot or deteriorate from contact with moisture. Polystyrene is rodent-proof, and fungi and bacteria cannot grow on it. Yet, EPS is a non-toxic, chemically inert and non-irritant material.

The economic benefits of EPS are many, helping builders maintain costs and budgets. The cost of insulating a building with EPS, rather than polyurethane, polyisocyanurate or mineral wool, for example, is around 20% lower. With EPS, floor construction requires the installation of only one waterproof membrane, unlike the two needed for PU foam or mineral wool. Throughout the building process, polystyrene will cut both material and labour costs. Besides, thanks to its superior insulation performance, EPS is a cost-effective solution well into the future.

Advantages of EPS insulation products

Polystyrene has been an established building material for the past 50 years. It has a combination of desirable attributes, making it the leading choice for insulation in the building industry.

Some of these attributes are:

  • Low carbon footprint
  • Unbeatable thermal insulation ability
  • Cost-effective
  • Recyclable
  • Moisture resistant
  • Flame retardant

Environmental benefits

Many of our clients ask us about the environmental impacts of EPS products. As a durable and lightweight material, EPS is a great choice not just for builders but also for the environment.

When used as an insulation material, EPS will save far more resources than making it generates. Thanks to its unrivalled insulation ability, polystyrene reduces resource use, such as heating or cooling buildings. Any resources that go into the manufacturing and supplying of EPS are balanced out by the benefits it brings in energy efficiency. In simple terms, EPS gives maximum return on resources used.

What's more, EPS is recyclable at many stages of its lifecycle. It doesn't deteriorate, making it ideal for recycling.
