Superform EPS+ is a high-grade expanded polystyrene (EPS) rigid foam insulation. It provides a dependable insulation product that can be used for almost every type of building insulation application. A stable R-value and compressive strength provide an inexpensive, energy-efficient insulation solution available in a wide range of thicknesses. Additionally, EPS+ meets CAN/ ULC S701 and ASTM C578 Standard Specification for Rigid, Cellular Polystyrene Thermal Insulation.

EPS+ is manufactured from expanded polystyrene resin using a pentane blowing agent. This process does not use the hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) typically used to produce XPS. The result is a closed, air-filled cell structure that does not contain HFCs with a very low impact on the environment.

Why Choose SuperForm EPS+

EPS+ vs. XPS Comparison

EPS+ XPS

Cell Structure
Manufactured from expanded polystyrene resin using a pentane blowing agent. This creates an air-filled, closed cell foam.

Cell Structure
Manufactured using polystyrene, blowing agents, and dyes. This creates a closed cell foam that often contains hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).

R-Value Stability
Provides a stable R-value that does not deteriorate over time.

R-Value Stability
Less stable and the R-value deteriorates as gasses escape its cells.

Long Term R Value:
LTTR does not apply to EPS+, because it is not manufactured with the intent to retain blowing agent and due to its closed cell nature, there is no reduction in R value over time.

Long Term R Value:
XPS uses a blowing agent when manufactured, thus it leaks over time reducing the R-value by 10% in 5 years, resulting in a R-value of 4.5, which is just below the R-value of EPS+.

Compressive Strength
Available in 10, 16, 20, 25, 30,40, and 60 psi.

Compressive Strength
Available in 15, 25, 30, 40, 60, and 100 psi.

Cost
Impressive cost per R-value and compressive strength. As a result, EPS+ is a dependable, cost-efficient insulation solution.

Cost
A much higher cost per R-value than EPS+. Additionally, its R-value is less stable and deteriorates over time.

Water Absorption
EPS+ absorbs more water initially but retains less water long term. Designed to quickly release moisture. This enables it to dry quickly and maintain its R-value over time. 15 years study shows 5% water absorption, 94% R-value retention.

Water Absorption
XPS absorbs less water initially, but retains more water long term. Often traps moisture due to its low drying potential. Its inability to release moisture causes its R-value to deteriorate over time. 15 Year study shows 19% water absorption, 52% R-value retention.

Water Resistance
Closed cell polystyrene insulation that is resistant to moisture gain, proven to resist moisture in both short (24 hour) and long-term tests.

Water Resistance
Closed cell polystyrene insulation that is resistant to moisture gain. However, its ability to resist moisture has only been proven in short-term (24 hour) tests.

Vapor Permenance
Ranges from 2.5 – 5.0 ng/Pa·s·m2 per inch thick. It is more breathable and dry’s better in wet climates.

Vapor Permenance
Typically 1.5 ng/Pa·s·m2 per inch thick. Is not breathable and has high potential of trapping moisture in your wall due to its low drying capability.

Environmental Impact
Low impact on the environment. Its manufacturing process uses a pentane blowing agent instead of the hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) blowing agents typically used to produce XPS. EPS+ has the lowest carbon footprint of all rigid insulation, up to 57 times lower.

Environmental Impact
High impact on the environment. Its use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) as a blowing agent cause a very high global warming potential (GWP). It also uses harmful color dyes not found in EPS+. Results in a carbon footprint of up to 33-57 times higher then EPS+.

Dimensional Availability
Options to suit every application - standard sizes or custom cuts to suit your needs.

Dimensional Availability
Limited thickness and size options.

SuperForm EPS+ Products

Sheet Insulation

Perimeter, Below Grade, & Floor Insulation

The perimeter and slab of the foundation accounts for up to half of a building’s heat loss. This is why below-grade insulation is such a critical component of an energy-efficient building envelope. Expanded polystyrene (EPS) provides a cost-effective insulation that enhances the efficiency of both heating and cooling systems.

Expanded polystyrene is known for its ability to resist and quickly release moisture. This ability ensures that EPS maintains its R-value over time. As a result, EPS has gained wide acceptance in perimeter, below grade, and floor insulation applications.

SuperForm EPS+ sloped roof insulation is designed to provide energy-efficient, moisture resistant insulation with a positive slope-to-drain design. EPS+ is manufactured using pentane as a blowing agent. This ensures that its high R-value remains unchanged over time, even in extreme temperatures. As a closed cell polystyrene insulation, EPS+ is proven to resist moisture gain and quickly dry. When coupled with a low slope roof design, it eliminates areas for water to collect or pool. EPS+ complies with requirements for most fire-resistant roof assemblies.

Superform Eps+ Bitumen Roof Insulation

SuperForm EPS+ is a lightweight, expanded polystyrene insulation perfect for use in modified bitumen roof systems. Modified bitumen membranes offer a weather resistant, energy efficient, flexible roofing solution that is easy to maintain and repair. EPS+ compliments these systems by providing an insulation with a stable R-value and high compressive strength that is moisture resistant and can withstand extreme weather conditions.

Modified bitumen membranes are typically applied by torch or using hot asphalt. Both of these methods can damage the EPS+ panel if it is not properly protected. As a result, it is important to always include a protective board on top of the EPS+ panel when applying by torch or using hot asphalt. EPS+ complies with requirements for most fire-resistant roof assemblies.
