EPS Geofoam Green Roof Application
Insulation is a key element for a successful green roof. Geofoam, made of expanded polystyrene, provides an insulation layer that maintains its R-value over time. Available in various densities, R-values, and sizes, geofoam is the perfect solution for installation under the plants and growing medium of a green roof.
Geofoam is a lightweight substance that reduces downward pressure while retaining its compressive strength. It can also be pre-cut for specific jobs, allowing for limitless customization of the landscape design and quick, less labor-intensive installations.
EPS is produced by using steam to expand and fuse polystyrene beads via a variety of manufacturing processes creating a closed-cell structure that contains air, making it ideal for a variety of applications including construction, packaging, shipping, and food storage.
Graphite Polystyrene is created by integrating graphite particles into EPS. The graphite particles increase thermal performance compared to conventional EPS.
EPS has high R-value retention, is fully recyclable, and is easily customizable. EPS is made without ozone-harming compounds or any kind of dye. It is available in a variety of compressive strengths and has superior bonding capabilities. Best of all, EPS will save you time and money. So the real question is: Why not EPS?
