Some information about EPS follows:
- EPS (expanded poly styrene) is a lightweight cellular plastics material containing small spherical shaped particles consisting of 98% air.
EPS is produced in a wide range of densities to match its various applications. The grade used for Insulbricks has been tested to achieve the appropriate strength as formwork for the concrete while ensuring the optimum amount of insulation is achieved.
EPS is an inert, organic material. It will not rot and is highly resistant to mildew. It provides no nutritive value to any living thing. Therefore it will give no life support to termites or rodents. EPS has no natural enemies.
- Moisture resistance
- EPS is a closed cell material and does not readily absorb water, unless subjected to prolonged saturation. Testament to this is its widespread use in fishing floats and marinas. However, with any of the external finishes recommended for our Building System, no moisture penetration should occur.
