The Future of Expanded Polystyrene

About us

Poly Molding is the Leading Manufacturer of Expanded Polystyrene

Expanded Polystyrene (commonly known as EPS) has become one of the most sustainable modern methods of construction available. Expanded Polystyrene is strong, lightweight, it does not rot, it is water resistant, and has excellent insulation properties. Expanded Polystyrene is widely used in construction projects ranging from buildings and stadiums, roadways, and commercial landscaping.

Foundations for Lightweight Structures

Innovative use of EPS geofoam is to replace traditional agricultural pile footings on peat soils.

Green Roofs

The use of green roofs refers to a fast-growing (no pun intended) trend toward environmentally friendly building processes.

bridge abutment

Bridge Abutment

There are several advantages to using EPS geofoam to construct approach fills for bridge abutments.

lightweight roads

Lightweight Roads

The growing need for new roads may, in many cases, require construction over soft or loose soils that are incapable of supporting additional load.

landscaping

Landscaping

EPS geofoam can be used to create topography without adding significant load to underlying structures and services.

geofoam road widening

Road Widening

Roadways often have to be widened to reduce congestion. This situation results in additional fill being required for the roadway to be widened.

Retaining wall backfill

Retaining Wall Backfill

EPS geofoam can be used as backfill behind retaining and buried structures to greatly reduce lateral pressures on the structure.

geofoam utility protection

Utility Protection

Engineering plans often call for the placement of new fill over existing underground structures that were not designed to support the increased loads.

Stadium & theater seating

Stadium & Theater Seating

EPS geofoam can be used to form tiered seating in locations such as auditoriums, movie theaters, gymnasiums and churches.

What is Geofoam?

Geofoam, a product of Expanded Polystyrene Fill (EPS), is a rigid form of high-performance Styrofoam insulation. This material is comprised of expanded polystyrene that is lightweight yet quite strong and dependable. As lightweight fill, geofoam serves as a soil substitute in structural applications of varying types.

What is Poly R.I.T.E?

POLY R.I.T.E is a rigid cellular polystyrene thermal insulation which meets and exceeds the Physical properties requirements of ASTM C 578. It is laminated with moisture resistant, laminated polymeric facers. It comes standard as a metallic reflective facer but other options include a clear laminate, grid pattern or any combination of the two. POLY R.I.T.E can contribute towards LEED credits, and is recognized as an ENERGY STAR® insulation.
