About BASF EPS
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
