EPS is derived from petroleum and natural gas by-products.
Sundolitt EPS is 98% air.
EPS has been the most popular and cost-effective insulation material in the UK for many years.
Millions of cubic metres have been used to insulate all manner of domestic and commercial properties and local authority buildings such as schools and hospitals.
It is one of the lightest insulation materials available and is easy to transport, easy to handle and requires no protective clothing, masks or goggles for installation or for cutting.
It can be easily cut on site with a handsaw or chainsaw.
EPS is remarkably robust, with extremely high compressive stress levels and very low thermal conductivity.
Sundolitt EPS insulation
sheeting is widely used in the construction industry, as insulation in walls, floors, roofs and substructures, where it can improve thermal efficiency by up to 70% compared with a non-insulated building.
The energy used in the manufacture of Sundolitt EPS is recovered in just 6 months by the energy saved in the buildings in which it is installed.
Sundolitt EPS is also available in large format structural blocks
for load-bearing void fill in civil engineering projects. Weighing just 1% of the weight of conventional fill materials, it greatly reduces the volume of earth or other heavy fill material required and also reduces the pressure on the subsoil and any underlying services.
