STYROFOAM extruded polystyrene was invented by Dow more than 50 years ago and was first as a flotation material in life-rafts and life-boats as its fully closed cell structure made it highly resistant to water absorption. By the early 1950’s, the combination of excellent mechanical strength, high insulation value and extremely low water absorption properties led to STYROFOAM being regarded as the perfect thermal insulation material. It is the ideal structure core for wide range of building composites such as roofing, walls, and floors.
Today, STYROFOAM products are being used extensively throughout the world in both residential and commercial buildings, civil construction projects, cold stores, laminated panels, refrigerated trucks and containers. The excellent mechanical strength of STYROFOAM FLOORMATE extruded polystyrene foam makes it an ideal heavy-load-bearing insulation material for any kind of floors in warehouses, parking areas, as well as residential and commercial buildings.
