Responsible Construction with Resilient Polystyrene Foam Blocks by Foamex

As the rate of pollution and substandard projects increase, builders and engineers are starting to lean towards the use of resilient polystyrene foam blocks for more responsible construction. A popular sustainable alternative, polystyrene blocks ensure the quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness of the construction, plus is a positive contribution to the environment and the community.

Foamex is a renowned leader in the production and supply of expanded or extruded polystyrenes across Australia. As a proud member of Expanded Polystyrene Australia (EPSA), Foamex complies with sustainability requirements in all levels of operation from production to the use of products, and disposal.

Foamex uses non-CFC compound pentane in the development of their polystyrene products, hence producing no ozone-depleting gases during the manufacture and use of the product. Built with more than 98% air, polystyrene foam blocks can be carried by hand, are easy to install, flexible, and can be custom cut based on desired size or shape. This saves on overall labour and transportation costs at an incredible margin, plus is a faster yet safer construction alternative where heavy equipment is no longer needed, unlike when using traditional building materials such as concrete.

Resilient polystyrene foam blocks are ideal for most acoustic and insulation needs. Their rigid and closed cell composition prevent heat and harmful rays from entering during summer, and retains energy inside the room in winter. This drastically reduces energy costs and consumption. Weather resistant with low moisture absorbency, resilient polystyrene foam blocks efficiently insulate the whole structure from roof to underfloor.

Apart from commercial or residential applications, EPS blocks are the most practical and safest construction material for road embankments or bridge and railway projects with a daily high volume or traffic loads.

Foamex offers a diverse range of resilient polystyrene foam blocks for building and construction. Their product line includes Styroboard™ EPS and XPS, Diamond Pod™, Purlink™, and Expol™.
