expandable polystyrene

Styropor®, also known as EPS (expandable polystyrene) or Styrofoam, is a thermoplastic particle foam material based on polystyrene. Due to its outstanding material properties, Styropor® offers so many advantages that it is difficult to list them in an accurate order. Most often, various priorities result from differing objectives – but whatever they are, Styropor® meets nearly every preference in the best way possible.


Styropor® consists of 98% air and just 2% structural substance, and thanks to precisely this fact, this material has outstanding properties. These result in the extraordinary cost-effectiveness characterized by a very beneficial price to performance ratio.
