To better understand high-density polystyrene foam, Foamex proudly detail some of its attributes and applications in advanced, sustainable architecture;

Attributes of High-Density Polystyrene Foam

The unique structure of high-density polystyrene foam provides major benefits to the building and construction industry. Comprised of 98% air, they are exceptionally lightweight making them easy to handle and transport onsite. Minimised energy consumption necessary for transportation and installation reduces your overall carbon footprint.

Air is a poor conductor of heat and thus polystyrene products have been categorised high and long-term R-values, making them the most powerful insulation solution on the market. Preventing heat transfer, polystyrene foam insulation maintains a comfortable interior temperature year-round and without the need to depend on inefficient air conditioning systems.

Featuring a closed and rigid cellular matrix, high-density polystyrene foam is dimensionally strong and stable, which makes it equally suitable for heavy construction like road and bridge infrastructure. For quality assurance, the durability of Foamex polystyrene products has been tested as per the most stringent Australian Building standards, in which they have earned certification as an effective construction material alternative.

High-Density Polystyrene Foam Applications

High-density polystyrene foams are used in a wide variety of building and construction projects. Foamex's range consists of varying polystyrene products, each designed for specific applications. This includes:

  • PurlinK® Roof Spacers - increased protection for metal roofs.
  • Styroboard® EPS - mainstream insulation mounted on ceilings and walls.
  • Styroboard® XPS - commonly used with concrete slab on ground.
  • Expol® Underfloor Insulation - applied underfloor, between floor joists.
  • Diamond Pods® Void Formers - installed under a concrete slab.
