Styropor® Expandable Polystyrene (EPS)

Styropor expandable polystyrene (EPS), an epoch-making invention by BASF, was patented in 1950. Over the past 50 years, Styropor EPS has become almost a synonym for energy-saving building and secure, economic packaging. It has improved continually; new variants have been devised, processes and machinery have been refined and updated and novel applications have arisen. Styropor EPS is the BASF trade name for expandable polystyrene (EPS) supplied in the form of beads. Containing a blowing agent, it is produced by the polymerization of a styrene monomer in the presence of a peroxide as catalyst, causing the styrene molecules to form long chains.
