Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is a lightweight, yet strong, insulation solution for use in the industrial, commercial and domestic markets.

Its closed cell structure prevents the passage of heat or cold, protecting buildings from sudden changes in temperature. Our in-house manufacturing team can even cut it to the size you need for your project. We also stock polystyrene granules that can be used in beanbags.
