Expanded POLYSTYRENE reeled films
It is obtained through an extrusion process of one or more layers of SHOCK-PROOF POLYSTYRENE (HIPS) with variable mechanical properties according to the customer’s requirements. The central layer is composed of expanded PS and the outer layers of compacted PS. The right combination of the layers and the composition chosen allows us to obtain a substantial reduction in density yet maintaining good mechanical properties and sufficient rigidity. The reduction in density can be rationalised based on the specific requirements of the customer. Available in white and coloured. On request, it is manufactured in compliance with the requirements of DIRECTIVE 2002/72/EC “Plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food” and its amendments, accompanied by the relative declaration of suitability.
