How is expanded polystyrene made?
The conversion of expandable polystyrene to expanded polystyrene is carried out in three stages:

Pre-expansion,
Maturing/Stabilization, and
Molding

Polystyrene is produced from crude oil refinery product styrene. For manufacturing EPS, the polystyrene beads are impregnated with the foaming agent pentane. Polystyrene granulate is prefoamed at temperatures above 90°C.

This temperature causes the foaming agent to evaporate. Hence inflating the thermoplastic base material to 20-50 times its original size.

After this, the beads are stored for 6-12 hrs allowing them to reach equilibrium. Then beads are conveyed to the mold to produce forms suited as per application.

What is expanded polystyrene Sheet (EPS)?

EPS is a lightweight material with good insulation characteristics offering benefits such as:

ic4
Thermal Insulation:

Due to its closed cell structure, comprising 98% air bound by a cellular polymer matrix, EPS has exceptionally low thermal conductivity. This helps keep food such as fish, meat and produce fresher for longer. It means less food wastage from temperature degradation.

ic5
Impact Protection and Mechanical Strength:

EPS has extremely high shock absorbency characteristics and exceptional mechanical/compressive strength. These attributes help protect everything from fish and fresh produce to delicate electrical or electronic goods. EPS packaging is also widely acknowledged for its ability to protect high-value and/or heavy goods – from domestic appliances to computers and TV sets.

ic6
Lightweight:

EPS is 98% air, helping make it one of the lightest of all packaging materials. This brings significant beneficial impacts when it comes to handling, transportation and fuel costs.

ic4
Moisture Resistant and Rot-proof:

EPS is non-hygroscopic which means it does not readily absorb or retain moisture from the atmosphere. It is also rot-proof. These are crucial attributes when it comes to protecting goods which may be affected by moisture.

ic5
Environmentally Safe and Recyclable:

EPS is non-toxic, inert and contains no CFCs or HCFCs. It is odourless and tasteless and does not support fungal, bacteriological or animal growth. It has no attraction for vermin and is therefore ideal for food packaging. EPS can easily be recycled or beneficially recovered where facilities exist.

ic6
Branding Options:

The smooth surface of EPS is suitable for printed or embossed corporate or product branding or adhesive labelling
