Product overview

Important Note

The table below provides an overview


of the currently available sales products made of Styropor.

The information provided in this publication is based on our current knowledge and experience. In view of the
wide array of possible influences
during the processing and utilization
of our product, this information does
not free processors from the need to
conduct their own tests and experiments. The information we provide
does not constitute a guarantee of
specific properties or of the suitability
of the product for a particular application purpose. All of the descriptions,
drawings, photographs, data, ratios,
weights and the like presented here
can be changed without prior notice
and do not constitute the contractually agreed-upon characteristics of the
product. The recipients of our product
are themselves responsible for observing any protective rights as well
as all applicable laws and regulations.

The letter P that precedes the


product number indicates that the
product does not have a flame-retardant finish. F preceding the product
number in-dicates that the product
has a flame-retardant finish. Other
brands with a flame-retardant finish
are Peripor and Neopor (Neopor P
5200 non flame-retardant).
Peripor is particularly well-suited for
the manufacture of perimeter insulating panels.
Neopor is suitable for the production
of silver-gray foams having a considerably higher thermal-insulation
capacity than the usual EPS insulating
materials.
Additional details about the properties
and applications of the individual sales
products (for instance, fire-safety test
certificates) can be obtained from our
Technical Data Sheets relating to the
specific products.
