Styroboard by Foamex is the number-one polystyrene foam insulation in Australia. Featuring both expanded and extruded polystyrene, the product range has been used for a broad range of applications in both commercial and residential properties. With a strict commitment to world-class quality, Foamex continues to be the leading innovator in the use of polystyrene since 1982.

What is Styroboard Polystyrene Foam Insulation?
The product development at Foamex designed Styroboard to be the ideal building material for such applications as architectural profiles, insulation, protective packaging and decorative fixtures. There are expanded polystyrene sheets (EPS) for maximum flexibility and cost-efficiency, as well as extruded polystyrene sheets (XPS) for maximum insulation power and durability.

With high R-values and thermal performance, Styroboard XPS has received positive feedback for maintaining comfortable indoor temperatures all year round. Foamex supplies Styroboard XPS in the sheet size of 2400 x 600mm, in thicknesses of 25mm up to 100mm.
