EPS F350 is an expandable polystyrene (EPS) and Arena Petro Gas is in position to supply and export it directly from PETROMOLE through its trading services according to the following specification and technical properties.
In addition, It is a polymer that can increase its volume when exposed to heat, due to the presence of a hydrocarbon agent such as pentane within its structure. EPS F350 is a fire-retardant grade of EPS that has a foam density of 35 kg/m3 and a water absorption rate of 0.5%.
EPS F350 has many applications in various industries, such as:
- Construction: insulation material for walls, roofs, floors and pipes, and a lightweight filler for concrete blocks and panels.
- Packaging: EPS F350 can be used as a cushioning material for transporting fragile and shock-sensitive goods, such as electronics, appliances, furniture and food.
- Industrial and domestic equipment: making refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, heaters and water heaters.
- Decoration: a material for making sculptures, models, signs, ornaments and other decorative items.
