Information @ a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Expanded Polystyrene is a lightweight, rigid, plastic foam insulation material produced from solid beads of polystyrene.
    It is produced when pentane is dissolved in a polystyrene base material, which is then steam-heated to form EPS beads.
  • Expanded polystyrene foam (EPF) is a plastic material that has special properties due to its structure. Composed of individual cells of low density polystyrene, EPF is extraordinarily light and can support many times its own weight in water.
  • Expanded polystyrene product can contain up to 50% (on average 15%) recycled polystyrene. Simple recycling involves the crumbling of old moulded product into small pieces and remoulding into product with a significant portion of freshly expanded product.
  • EPS is produced in a three stage process: Pre-expansion, Conditioning, Moulding, Shaping , Post-production processing.
  • There are two moulding processes for EPS - Block moulding , Shape Moulding.
  • Expandable polystyrene is the raw material or resin used for the molding of expanded polystyrene products. It is manufactured in the form of very small polystyrene beads with a weight-average molecular weight between 160,000 and 260,000 and contains 4 to 7%
    blowing agent, usually pentanes or butane.
  • Expanded polystyrene beads are used to Control Mosquito Breeding.
  • Expanded Polystyrene is used extensively in the creation of 3D props and displays.
  • It is used in ground improvement works.
  • It is used in the control of vector-borne diseases.
  •  EPF is used in flotation devices, insulation, egg cartons, flats for meat and produce, sandwich and hamburger boxes, coffee cups, plates, peanut packaging, and picnic coolers.
  • The expanded polystyrene (EPS) packaging industry is at the forefront of plastics recycling in the UK. The EPS Packaging Group is working hard to further increase recycling levels through a programme of seminars, community projects and practical assistance to waste holders.
  • Building and construction applications are the largest outlet for EPS accounting for around two-thirds of demand.
  • The EPS market has seen strong growth globally, driven by the construction sector where it is one of the top choices for insulation.
    According to US-based consultants CMAI, global demand grew at an average of 5.5%/year in the 2000-2006 period.
  • The European insulation market for EPS is expected to see more than 20% growth by 2010, according to the manufacturer Nova Innovene.
  • The world EPS market made a spectacular recovery in 2006 and is performing very strongly again in 2007. Almost every major market in the world did well, the notable exception being North America and Southeast Asia.
  • China remains the largest market with 32 percent of world demand. It has recovered from the 2005. contraction and is expected to continue to enjoy healthy growth.
  • China remains the largest market with 32% of world demand, with domestic demand growth substantially driven by the construction sector.
  • China has recovered from the 2005 contraction and is expected to continue to enjoy healthy growth, currently assuming a new role as one of the major exporters to the World market.
