Buy Expanded Polystyrene

Expanded polystyrene is made by blowing gas into beads of polystyrene. The gas makes the beads expand, which gives EPS its characteristic foam texture. EPS is a good insulator because it is slow to conduct heat. This means that it takes a long time for the heat to move through the material, which keeps the temperature of whatever it is insulating stable. Now buy and sell EPS at Waste Trade.
