Recycled polystyrene can be made into PS pellets that used for XPS insulation production
The XPS insulation board usually refers to the board used to keep the building warm. The thermal insulation board is made of polystyrene resin and poly-storage materials, which are mixed by heating and injection, and then compacted and extruded to produce a rigid foam plastic board, which has moisture-proof and waterproof performance. The thickness of the building's outer protective structure is reduced, thereby increasing the indoor spaces.
The global XPS insulation market is valued at $65 million in 2017 and is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of more than 8% from 2018 to 2026. The global XPS insulation market has been expanding due to increased demand for these materials from the construction, aviation and automotive industries.
As the demand of XPS insulation board is increasing, the raw materials produced from virgin resin are far from enough, and the material regeneration rate is slow. We have to find new materials as substitutes.
Having been purchased polystyrene waste across the world for years, INTCO recycling is very experienced in this industry. The company has found that recycled polystyrene foam can be made into PS pellets that used in a variety of fields. It can be a good raw material for XPS insulation boards.
INTCO recycling purchases polystyrene blocks from the United States, Europe, Japan, Southeast Asia, etc. In order to ensure the quality of purchased foam waste, INTCO is not only carefully selected, strictly controlled the imported waste, but also specially designed professional foam recycling machines to solve the problem of polystyrene recycling for polystyrene suppliers.
The purchased polystyrene blocks will be transported to factories in China and Malaysia and made into high quality PS pellets. INTCO hopes to offer more recycled PS pellets to XPS and other foam products manufacturers, relieve the pressure on resources and make more polystyrene waste recycled at the same time.
