EPS (Styrofoam | airpop®)

What is EPS?

EPS is a polystyrene-based particle foam with unique properties. This versatile material not only protects your products during transport, but is also used in many technical applications.


EPS can be 100% recycled and is either directly returned to the production cycle or converted into polystyrene through melting processes to find a second life in new products.

Where can EPS be used?

EPS or also Styrofoam can be manufactured to almost any product and in any shape. Whether molded part, Styrofoam packaging or dunnage trays, but also as molded part for the automotive or construction industry – EPS is versatile. And its many positive properties, such as lightness and robustness, make the particle foam EPS a popular material.

EPS, airpop®, Styrofoam

Three names for one material Expandable polystyrene (EPS) was developed by BASF in 1949 and has since been known under the brand name Styrofoam. In 2014, European manufacturers of packaging and molded parts made of EPS introduced the new name airpop® engineered air.
