EPS Plastimar is CE marked

The EPS (expanded polystyrene) manufactured by the group Plastimar for applications of thermal and acoustic insulation in building construction has CE marking and contains a flame retardant additive which confers resistance to fogoAAA characteristics.

The sustainable choice for inverted roofs

The requirements for mechanical strength, low water permeability and water vapor meant the almost exclusive use of extruded polystyrene (XPS) in inverted flat roof thermal insulation solutions. Now EPS X is an alternative.

Innovation in thermal insulation

The Neoplas is an EPS (expanded polystyrene) with added graphite particles that reduce the effect of radiative heat transmission. Giving gray color and excellent thermal conductivity.

Using Expanded Polystyrene ( EPS ) as an efficient thermal insulator plays a significant role in reducing CO2 emissions and contributes to reducing global warming.
The energy required for its production (151-269 kwh / m3) is recoverable after six months of application as a thermal insulator in the building envelope.
At the end of its life cycle EPS can still be 100% recyclable and reusable or converted to energy - waste to energy. EPS production is a clean process, free of CFCs and HCFCs.




In construction, the word isolation is synonymous with comfort.

The acoustic and thermal insulation allows our dwellings to have a much higher level of comfort compared to the outdoor environment.

Sound propagation arises through an elastic or solid medium, without which there is no transfer of sound energy. In everyday life, air represents the most common elastic medium for sound propagation, where collisions of molecules against each other give rise to compression and rarefaction regions in the propagation medium, without material displacement, only propagation. sound




EPS slab formwork elements are incorporated into these structures to make them lighter.

The dimensions and positioning of the EPS elements in the slabs is made according to the design of this structure.
