Applications of Thermocol (Expanded Polystyrene)

Thermocol or Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is a preferred packaging material across many industrial segments. Widely accessible for purchase from any part of the country. It is one of the most reliable and cost-effective means to protect your goods from transit damage. Thermocol is extremely light. It can be moulded into any desired shape and is yet sufficiently rigid to absorb shocks and physical impact. We are the leading manufacturers of top quality EPS in India. We have a list of ever-growing clientele.

Expanded Polystyrene comes with many advantages. More importantly, EPS features a closed cell structure and thus supports low thermal conductivity. It is highly preferred for thermal insulation. Other materials possess an open cell structure and are thus incompetent when subject to moisture.

Secondly, thermocol is tasteless, odorless and fungi-resistant. This makes it the perfect packaging material for pharmaceutical products. It also helps  to maintain a temperature balance.

EPS applications includes packaging of fruits such as mangoes, papayas, grapes etc., as they remain thermally protected. K. K. Nag Pvt. Ltd also facilitates extensive packaging of seafood by providing sufficient supply of thermocol in India.

Thermocol Components

Thermocol is also an essential internal component among the manufacturers of ACs and refrigerators. Earlier, insulation materials used in these products were glued onto a metal sheet. But today it has been replaced by thermocol due to its various useful properties like insulation properties, light weight advantage, toughness etc. Among the various applications, EPS components are also increasingly being used in India. Light-weight and insulation properties make EPS best for components.

Construction Sector

Many construction companies in India and worldwide also use Thermocol while constructing ceilings and walls. EPS , which is commonly known as Thermocol, is also an excellent sound-proofing solution because of its sound absorption properties.

EPS is also used for producing Geofoam for facilitating landfills, owing to the material’s resistance to heat and moisture; it offers extensive dimensional stability and is inert in nature.

Other Industrial Products

Among other EPS applications, are Industrial Pallets made of EPS with Plastic lining. These pallets are not only heavy duty but also light weight which makes them ideal for Transportation by Air.
