Expanded polystyrene foam, also known as EPS foam, is made from a mixture of polystyrene and a gaseous blowing agent (generally pentane). Through the use of steam heat, the solid plastic is expanded into a foam.
EPS foam offers a good strength, good first drop cushioning performance, and offers excellent insulation. The product is great for packing consumer electronics, appliances, toys, food service items, and more. Below you will find technical data about our EPS foam products.
