EPS sandwich panel, Insulated EPS Wall Panel Structural

Its material properties may include any of polyurethane foam, fiberglass, or mineral wool, and expanded polystyrene (EPS). While many of the former materials may either be combined or unused in the making, expanded polystyrene remains the predominant material used in the production of EPS sandwich panel.

EPS Recycling - Green Business HQ

Expanded Polystyrene is 98% air and 2% polystyrene making it extremely lightweight. Expanded Polystyrene can become a problem if it is not handled correctly. When it is broken the small beads can easily blow away and become unwanted litter. Help us look after the environment, by following these guidelines:

PDF Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) EPS Geofoam Application

is an expanded polystyrene building material that is approximately 1% the weight of soil and less than 10% the weight of other lightweight fill alternatives. As an example, one cubic foot of EPS 15 weighs ex-actly one pound. As a lightweight fill alternative, EPS Geofoam reduces the loads imposed on adjacent and underlying structures and soils.

Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate | Lightweight Aggregate

Polystyrene or Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Polystyrene and EPS are both types of closed-cell foam, which can be manufactured into small "beads" and used as lightweight aggregates for concrete. They are extremely light, but somewhat brittle, making them less durable than other types of lightweight aggregate.
