Polystyrene Block

The largest one-piece polystyrene blocks we supply is 2500 x 1250 x 1000mm. Blocks are available in a range of density’s in both white and graphite grey (on request).

We also offer a Fire Retardant (FRA) EPS block which is available in grades from standard density 15g/l to UHD 40g/l.

EPS block is produced using a similar process to moulded parts, but on a much larger scale Block can then be hot wire cut or hand scooped.

Our block is widely used in the construction industry for wall and floor insulation. It is also used for packaging where parts are very simple shapes can be hot wire cut to protect corners and edges. As with moulded EPS, cut parts are fully recyclable.
