Extruded Polystyrene (XPS)

The use of XPS products reduces the amount of energy required to maintain comfortable living environments – thus, greatly reducing energy loss in buildings. XPS is manufactured from polystyrene resin, which is a thermoplastic material. This means that it can be melted and re-inserted into the manufacturing process to produce new XPS insulation. In fact, XPS manufacturing plants create virtually no ‘scrap’ or waste material. In addition, post-consumer XPS insulation boards can be reused in many commercial applications. The sustainable benefits of using XPS insulation are numerous, including: high thermal performance, excellent compressive strength, and condensation control. The thermal insulating properties of XPS provide both energy-efficiency and environmental benefits.
