Styrofoam is a light material formed by foaming polystyrene and consisting of hydrogen and carbon atoms. In everyday life, the word polyfoam is often used to describe expanded polystyrene.
For more than 50 years, the use of expanded polystyrene has helped us maintain the freshness and quality of food, the integrity of household appliances, comfort and coziness of our home. Also, polyfoam is widely used in such areas as mechanical engineering, road construction, pharmaceuticals, medicine.
Polystyrene foam (EPS) is an environmentally friendly, non-toxic insulating material.
In the construction industry, expanded polystyrene marked G1 is used – low-flammability, self-extinguishing materials. Flame retardant is added to the expanded polystyrene granule, which ensures the safety and non-flammability of the material during use.
One of the main advantages of expanded polystyrene boards is resistance to moisture. Polystyrene is insoluble in water, does not swell and does not absorb water. It is also resistant to aqueous solutions of salts, acids and bases. Built into the outer wall, it does not absorb moisture, which is important for creating a good indoor climate and the health of its users.
Choosing polystyrene for building insulation is an investment in your comfortable life, so always choose quality brands, the parameters and characteristics of which are provided by the project.
