There are significant changes underway in the supply of Styrofoam the market leading extruded polystyrene. During 2018 Dow Chemical will cease the manufacture of blue Styrofoam and replace with a new improved product called Xenergy Styrofoam. This product will be grey in colour and offer the same mechanical properties but will provide improved thermal performance. The process of winding down stocks of blue Styrofoam is already underway with some grades already exhausted such as RTM, these will be supplied in the new improved grade of Xenergy. Other grades will be phased in over coming months. Full technical data sheets on the new improved product are available to download here and here.

P5 grade chipboard is a high duty board designed for floor use including humid applications. The chipboard incorporates a tongue and groove detail on all four edges for ease of installation. Our chipboard is FSC approved. Styrofoam is a closed cell insulation board with good water resistance. This eliminates the need for a vapour control layer in the floor construction. Styrofoam is extruded with a unique blue colour to clearly identify the product.
Styrofloor can be used to insulate floors in residential and commercial projects for both new build and refurbishment. It is also suitable for use in conservatories or conversion projects.
