Styrodur is the green extruded rigid polystyrene foam (XPS) from BASF. As a thermal insulation, XPS makes a significant contribution to climate protection by reducing CO2 emissions.
The key features of Styrodur XPS are high compressive strength, low water absorption, and outstanding thermal insulation. It is also rot-proof and easy to handle on site. Compressive strength is the major factor that differentiates the various grades of Styrodur.
Optimum thermal insulation using Styrodur XPS makes a significant contribution to reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the major cause of the greenhouse effect.
One of the positive effects is that investment in comprehensive thermal insulation measures can be quickly offset by developers as a result of significantly lower energy consumption.Thermal insulation with Styrodur XPS represents thermal comfort that makes a real contribution to a healthy living environment.
For more than 40 years, Styrodur has been the product of choice of architects and planning engineers when it comes to protecting structures against heat, cold and moisture. Styrodur can meet all of the physical and structural requirements made in construction for the diverse climate conditions in Australia.
In addition, Styrodur is ecologically correct since it is free of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), halogenated chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and halogenated fluorocarbons (HFCs), and it contains air as the cell gas.
