Keep a Well-Insulated Interior with Expanded Polystyrene Blocks by Foamex

Expanded polystyrene blocks go beyond just aesthetics and stability; they are acknowledged as the most practical insulation method, effectively improving home energy efficiency plus reducing heating and cooling bills by incredible margins. For 36 years, Foamex remains as the most trusted manufacturer and supplier of expanded polystyrene products, with a commitment to not just product or service quality, but also sustainability and clean-up responsibilities.

To prevent excessive use of heating or cooling systems especially in weather extremities, the use of expanded polystyrene blocks is highly recommended among the construction industry. It contains a long term and high R-value that dramatically cuts overall energy consumption up to half. Rigid and closed cellular polystyrene foams resist heat flow, preventing outside heat infiltration during summer and retains warm air inside during winter.

Weather resistant with low moisture absorbency, polystyrene blocks are commonly placed outside of the wall stud to maintain a well-insulated interior. Expanded polystyrene blocks are also installed in coolrooms, ceilings, underslab, or any section standing between warm and cold air like basements and crawl spaces. Its versatile properties make it a perfect insulation material for concrete and masonry, as well as steel and timber studs.

Foamex offers an excellent range of polystyrene blocks from roof to underfloor insulation:

  • PurlinK® Roof Spacers - for metal deck roofing.
  • Styroboard® Expanded and Extruded Polystyrene - suitable for ceilings, walls, underslab, and roofs.
  • Expol® Underfloor Insulation - installed between floor joists applied in newly existing or newly-built houses or buildings.
  • Diamond Pods® Void Formers - installed under a concrete slab with polystyrene waffle pod void former system.

Foamex conforms with global efforts surrounding sustainable development. All of the expanded polystyrene products from Foamex are produced with no ozone-depleting gases nor chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).

As a proud member of Expanded Polystyrene Australia (EPSA), Foamex promotes responsible use of polystyrene products as outlined in the Pod Code of Practice. They recycle and convert polystyrene wastes into a new product through their recycling facilities in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Brisbane.
