EPS in Our Daily Lives
RMAX Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is one of the most environmentally efficient products in the world.
Expanded polystyrene (EPS), like all other materials does have some impact on the environment, however when used in an insulating application across the lifetime of the product, EPS saves considerably more energy than is consumed during its production.
Combined with its exceptional economic, durable, protective and insulating properties, EPS makes a positive contribution to the environment as well as to the efficiency and performance of the businesses that use it every day.
RMAX Expanded Polystyrene is made up of approximately 96%-99% air and only 4%-1% solid material. So even though it might look like a lot of raw material is consumed in production, in fact very little is used in each product.
