Who would have thought that it would be possible to work exclusively with air? Those working with expanded polystyrene (EPS) nowadays can say so! When you look a packaging, a product component or a block, it’s hard to believe that it’s made of 98% air and only 2% plastics.
Why the expanded polystyrene?
Almost every industry needs packaging for their products in order to ensure that they arrive at their destination in perfect condition. When deciding to use foam for your packaging needs, your products are protected with less material without compromising on the protection efficiency. When looking at foam composition, you’ll realize how amazing it is that such a tiny part of plastic material can insulate a building or protect your head in case of accident.
“Nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything is transformed!”
Finally, considering that expanded polystyrene is mostly made of air, it is not harmful for the environment. A growing number of municipalities are now accepting to collect #6 plastic for recycling. When protecting your products with EPS, you are contributing to sustainable development as it’s 100% recyclable. As the famous chemist and philosopher Antoine Lavoisier said: “Nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything is transformed!”
