EPS - Expanded Polystyrene Insulation

Kingspan manufactures EPS blocks using a molding process at densities of 1.0, 1.25, 1.5, 2.0, and 3.0 lb/ft3. Kingspan’s production capacities allow us to meet market demands for large or small volume projects. In addition, Kingspan has extensive fabrication capacity and considerable staff expertise to fabricate the blocks into sheets or virtually any shape utilizing computer-aided-design (CAD).

EPS Versatile Applications include:

  • Engineered roof deck systems:
    • Lightweight Insulating Concrete Systems: (LWIC) using Kingspan’s EPS Holey Board (thicknesses from ½” to 24”) and tapered EPS pieces embedded within the concrete are proven, high performance roof enclosure products for new steel and concrete construction as well as reroofing applications. 
    • Tapered EPS Roofing System: Predesigned pieces of EPS with a slope of 1/8, 3/16, or ¼ inch per foot as required. Each piece is labeled to match the actual CAD/CAM (computer aided design and manufacturing) requirement.                                                                                
  • Laminated panels and Cavity walls: (on-site or manufactured building systems)                          
  • Exterior and Interior Commercial and Residential Architectural Shapes
  • Fabricated Forms: Concrete, OEM, Specialty designs and applications                          
  • Geofoam: Roads, bridge approaches, plaza pool decks, parking ramps, stadium seating
