Eastern Wire Manufacturing, Inc. - The Wire Mesh Authority


Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is a closed-cell insulation that is manufactured by "expanding" a polystyrene polymer; the appearance is typically a white foam plastic insulation material (the likes of which can be found as merchandise packaging). The use of EPS insulation in building construction offers great flexibility, compatibility, and thermal efficiency for use in all areas of a construction site.

Eastern Wire's EPS is fire-resistant and made of a modified expanded polystyrene, which simply melts away when exposed to fire, and does not contribute to it. When the flame is removed, the fire goes out, unlike traditional Styrofoam products, which continue to burn and act as fuel to a fire.
