SuperForm
Insulation

Born from innovation – driven by technology.
SuperForm insulation is an easy to install
solution for any application.

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.
