EPS Graphite Products
The thermal insulation material of the future is called NEOCOAT. Neocoat is produced from Neopor®, a product of intense research by BASF®, and is a new innovative expanded polystyrene material. It has a silver-gray color and offers significantly improved thermal insulation performance compared to conventional heat insulating materials.
In each material, heat is transmitted through conduction, convection, and radiation. In closed cell materials such as Extruded Polystyrene (EPS), there can be no air movement, and thus heat transmission by treatment is minimized.
Tiny graphite molecules containing 3% of its composition act as reflectors that block the transmission of heat through radiation, allowing only convection to contribute to heat loss. As a result, NEOCOAT thermal insulating panels have 15% - 20% better thermal insulation properties than conventional white expanded polystyrene (EPS).
The THP product line of the NEOCOAT group is a group of graphite EPS products that was created exclusively for ETICS (External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems) applications. All products of the Neocoat THP line are made from BASF's Neopor® self-blooming material containing flame retardants. The NEOCOAT THP products show excellent dimensional stability, with the tightest tolerances not only in their dimensions’ measurements but also in squareness and flatness.
