Commonly used as insulation for walls, foundations and roofing, there are many benefits to selecting EPS products:
• Long-term is the resistance to heat flow)
• Energy efficiency
• Constant thermal resistance
• Measurable energy savings
• No growth of bacteria, nor will it decay over time
• Dimensional stability
• Chemical inertness
• Low cost
A cost efficient, high performing alternative to extruded (XPS) foam, EPS is the perfect choice for many insulation and construction applications.
Have You Seen the LITE?
EPS is extremely “GREEN“. NEVER any CFC’s, NEVER any HCFC’s.
Expanded Polystyrene has always been CFC- and HCFC-free. ICA is an environmentally conscientious manufacturing plant. Our in-house EPS trim is recycled and we accept recyclable EPS from our customers and the public, significantly reducing the amount of EPS that would potentially end up in landfills. In 1994 ICA installed a pentane collection system for air quality control. The system captures the pentane that is released during production and reroutes it through our boiler. This reduces the amount of natural gas we use, saving natural resources while being environmentally responsible. We continued our efforts to be mindful of our environment by installing solar panels and replacing our lighting with energy efficient fixtures. All of these actions help to keep the air of our planet cleaner and lessen the impact of landfills on the population.
