Insulation Technology has been block molding and fabricating expanded polystyrene (EPS) for over 30 years. We are dedicated to providing our customers with cost effective EPS solutions. Insultech uses state of the art equipment computer cutter and hot wire machines to give our customers the best quality and consistency. We can create just about any 2D shape you can think of. We pride ourselves on being able to offer outstanding customer service and working closely with our customers. Packaging rages from component parts, shapes, sheet stock for insulating boxes, blocks, spacers, cushioning, end caps, corner pads, edge protectors, dunnage and whatever else you can imagine using EPS for.
A large benefit of using EPS is that it is recyclable. We are 100% committed to recycling EPS, we will take back from our customers the foam which they collect from their customers. And we also take it back from the public: we have people that will drop off packaging and we also have towns that will collect it and bring it to us to be recycled. EPS can be reprocessed into new packaging products or durable goods. There have been recycling programs established in several countries throughout the world. Here is a site that has packaging recycling drop off locations:
Compared to EPS, other packaging materials such as corrugated cardboard, paper and wood, weigh on average six a half times as much. Which require twice as much energy to produce, fabricate, deliver, pick up and to recycle. Costs for material production, the transportation of product and recycle process, all relate directly to the weight of material that is required.
