What is EPS?

EPS stands for Expanded PolyStyrene. It is made up of tiny plastic beads that is able to trap still air inside of it. When molded tightly together, it makes for the perfect insulated barrier. If enclosed by these beads, EPS ensures no heat enters or leaves this contained area.

Wonder how EPS is made?

EPS can be manufactured to produce a variety of interesting products. Learn how EPS is expanded, moulded and cut in the following video!
