  - it makes construction mixtures and solutions lighter

  - it contains 99.5% of air

 

Scope of use

TERMOFLEX® EPS-GR is expanded polystyrene granulate with high thermo-insulating characteristics and low bulk density. They have the ability to fill tightly each free space and adapt to ant shape, which makes it ideal as bulk material for the simultaneous thermo-insulation and the filling of cavities, construction joints and openings.

It is used as an additional product to construction mixtures (EPS-concrete,  EPS thermal insulating plasters,  making bricks porous,  etc.); as a soil improver (for aeration), as material for filling in cavities and as a general filler (in the furniture industry,  toys,  etc.)

It contains only 0.5% artificial material and 99.5% air, which determines its application in the furniture industry as a filling material (for armchairs, sofas, toys, etc.). In this manner with maximal amount of air and minimal amount of material upholstered furniture of any kind could be manufactured quickly and economically, without influence on the weight.

It is also used in agriculture as a vegetal substrate and soil improvement  material,  enhancing the soil aeration(granulate with dimensions 4 – 8 mm). It could be used for enhancing the amelioration of compact and hard farming soils (garden, agricultural). It act as a filtering material and improves the water permeability and the aeration of the soil. It is used for draining purposes for the dewatering of flooded soils (granulate with dimensions 8 – 25 mm). It has no odour, it is chemically neutral and acceptable by the plants. It helps in the composting of waste materials in the landfills (granulate with dimensions 6-12 mm).
