With growing concerns about the threat of global climate change, itís important to look at various sustainable materials to see how they interact with the environment.
Architects, builders and occupants can be confident that XPS insulation products are among the most convenient and environmentally responsible products available on the market today.
Why? Because XPS has net positive energy conservation and air emission benefits when used in residential and commercial buildings over their normal life spans (typically between 15 to 50 years).
Because of its very high moisture resistance, XPS foam is long-lasting and less likely to need to be replaced because of water damage. Durable XPS foam insulation, where properly installed, also complies with strict international fire codes and standards for building applications.
We invite you to explore this section to learn more about the major benefits of XPS foam insulation.
The Extruded Polystyrene Foam Association (XPSA) is a trade association representing manufacturers of Extruded Polystyrene Foam (XPS) insulation products and the industry's raw material suppliers. XPSA members collectively manufacture more than 95% of all XPS destined for use in the North American market. XPSA promotes the benefits that accrue to society from appropriate use of XPS foam insulation applications.
