Construction & Infrastructure
A Best-Selling Durable Product
Epsilyte’s building and construction materials are engineered to promote increased fire resistance in a variety of durable applications, making them a popular choice for builders and architects who prioritize safety and sustainability. Besides being our best-selling product, this material is designed for high productivity and molded parts requiring quality surface finish over a broad range of densities.
DuraLyte® gray polystyrene (GPS) is built to last. With an increased thermal resistance (R-value), construction applications built with DuraLyte maintain their insulative properties for at least 50 years.
Not only does DuraLyte have a higher R-value, but its gray color does not show dirt like traditional EPS.
Epsilyte’s modified UL-certified building and construction grade material is a highly versatile material that can be used in various applications across the building and construction industry. Here are a few examples:
- Roofing Insulation: Epsilyte’s building and construction materials are ideal for roofing insulation due to their lightweight nature, excellent insulation properties, and fire resistance. The material can be used in both residential and commercial roofing applications, providing a cost-effective and efficient solution for keeping buildings cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
- Insulation Panels for RVs: Epsilyte’s materials are also commonly used to construct insulation panels for recreational vehicles (RVs). The lightweight nature of the material makes it an ideal choice for this application, as it helps to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle, making it easier to tow and improving fuel efficiency.
- Wall Insulation: Epsilyte’s building and construction materials are frequently used in wall insulation applications, providing a cost-effective and energy-efficient commercial and residential construction solution. The material can help reduce heat loss and improve indoor air quality while providing a high fire resistance level.
- Geofoam Applications: Geofoam is a lightweight fill material commonly used in construction projects, such as roadways, embankments, and retaining walls. Epsilyte’s modified UL-certified building and construction grade material is an excellent choice for geofoam applications due to its lightweight nature and high compressive strength.
- ICF Blocks: Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) are a popular choice for construction projects due to their energy efficiency, durability, and ease of construction. Epsilyte’s building and construction materials are frequently used in producing ICF blocks, providing a cost-effective and efficient solution for constructing walls with excellent insulation properties, fire resistance, and durability.
Overall, Epsilyte’s modified UL-certified building and construction grade material offers a highly versatile solution for many construction applications, providing a durable, lightweight, and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional building materials.
