Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) originates from oil, and through an extrusion process that involves melting together plastic resin and other ingredients, is made into a high performance rigid insulation material with a closed cell structure, making it impervious to moisture. It is a structural insulant, which is available in various grades for specific applications that require high loadings or resistance to excessive moisture levels. It is used as an insulation material for buildings.
- Provides a tight, energy-efficient seal, stopping air leaks and gaps.
- Retains its insulating properties over time.
- Lowers heating & cooling costs.
- Lightweight & versatile.
