Setting the standards for insulation and packaging




It set a new precedent when it was invented in 1951 and it remains a market leader today: Styropor, BASF’s expandable polystyrene (EPS) material.


Known for its cost-effectiveness, high performance and energy-efficient insulating properties, Styropor is used primarily in product packaging and building construction.


BASF supports with facilities and technical support around the world, ensuring that assistance is just a phone call or email away.


Highlights of Styropor’s performance features are:


  • excellent thermal insulation capacity
  • high compressive strength
  • outstanding impact absorption
  • low weight
  • imperviousness to moisture


Neopor® - Innovation in insulation

At BASF, we create chemistry for a sustainable future. And nowhere is that more apparent than with Neopor®, our star insulating material.


Based on our revolutionary Styropor® technology, Neopor® is thermal foam insulation with power to spare. Each Neopor® granule contains high-purity graphite, giving it a distinct silver-grey color and boosting its insulating performance to offer up to a 20% advantage over conventional EPS.


Formed into Rigid Foam Insulation, Neopor demonstrates these performance attributes:


  • Sustainable and Recyclable
  • Long-term Stable R-value
  • Class III Vapor Permeable
  • Adaptable Density and Dimension
  • Dimensionally Accurate and Stable
  • Cost Effective
