  And as Dow Chemical and Owens Corning, the two primary manufacturers of extruded polystyrene, will tell you, it’s not a small or modest difference. In a lot of ways, the process used to make a cup, versus building insulation (the primary modern use of extruded polystyrene) is the difference between a million pieces of foam and a solid brick. EPS (expanded) and XPS (extruded) are both closed-cell rigid insulation made from the same base polystyrene resins and manufactured differently, EPS is beads that are molded or cut into various sizes and shapes while XPS is extruded sheets.

EPS vs XPS (expanded polystyrene vs extruded polystyrene) 2 lb nominal density EPS (expanded polystyrene) has become a very popular alternative to extruded polystyrene for under slab and perimeter foundation wall insulation. The 2 lb EPS is available in any thickness, not just 1″ increments and is more economical than extruded polystyrene. Polystyrene is commonly injection molded, vacuum formed, or extruded, while expanded polystyrene is either extruded or molded in a special process. Polystyrene copolymers are also produced; these contain one or more other monomers in addition to iations: PS.

No. Extruded polystyrene (often in colors such as pink, blue or green) uses a different blowing agent and a different manufacturing process. White molded polystyrene, unlike extruded, is available in many different densities and thicknesses. Polystyrene insulation systems dramatically reduce energy consumption and pollution. A process for the production of extruded sheets of expanded polystyrene, which only uses expanding agents with low environmental impact, comprising the steps of: a) heating polystyrene or a mixture composed of polystyrene and at least one component selected from the group consisting flame retardants, coloring agents, plasticizers, heat stabilizers and lubricants at a temperature in the range Cited by: 7.

Expanded vs. Extruded Polystyrene. XPS & EPS Differentiators. It is commonly understood that XPS offers more initial R-value per inch than EPS but because of its lower cost, EPS offers more R-value per dollar.

It must also be noted that stated R-values of insulations products vary Extruded expanded polystyrene book different conditions and truly credible comparisons must.

The key difference between expanded and extruded polystyrene is that we produce expanded polystyrene (or EPS) from solid beads of polystyrene while we produce extruded polystyrene (or XPS) from solid polystyrene crystals.

Expanded polystyrene is a type of foam made from polystyrene. It is a lightweight, rigid and closed cell insulation. Key properties listed in ASTM C, Standard Specification for Rigid, Cellular Polystyrene Thermal Insulation. There are important differences between the different offerings of XPS and EPS insulations.

The former is available in Types IV, V, VI, VII, and X, all with minimum R-values of per inch, and minimum compressive strengths ranging from to kPa (15 to psi).

Owens Corning FOAMULAR Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Rigid Foam Insulation is a closed cell, moisture-resistant rigid foam board well suited to meet the needs for a wide variety of residential and commercial construction applications.

Widely reported research by Dow Chemical Co. shows that their extruded polystyrene foam insulation, on average, outperforms expanded polystyrene (EPS) in below-grade insulation applications. Extruded & Expanded Polystyrene Foam Foam Products Corporation can manufacture any polystyrene foam products to meet your specific project requirements.

Our high quality polystyrene foam materials can be fabricated as extruded or expanded foam products. Expanded Polystyrene Insulation ’ PermaTherm’s EPS products were tested by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. and meet the requirements of the Standard Mechanical Code and the International Mechanical Code.
