Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is a lightweight cellular plastic material consisting of small hollow spherical balls. It is this closed cellular construction that gives EPS its remarkable characteristics.
EPS is produced in a wide range of densities providing a varying range of physical properties. These are matched to the various applications where the material is used to optimize its performance and strength.
EPS is widely used in the building and construction industry and it is also used in packaging applications. Due to this situation, the number of the waste EPS is relatively large. So the disposing problem is also bothering for many people.
What are EPS ingots? EPS ingots are materials which are melted by a kind of machine which is called densifier. The loose EPS is of bulky volume and the densifier can reduce the volume of the shaped EPS materials and turn the loose EPS into ingots.
The EPS ingots are perfect materials for reusing. They can be granulated and reused to make other plastic products. EPS is made from Polystyrene, and the EPS can be reused to granulate polystyrene.
Many recycling companies have needs for EPS materials. However, the loose EPS is very difficult to granulate. It must be recycled into small volume and then be reused to granulate.
GREENMAX from INTCO recycling has the foam recycling machine called densifier. The densifier can work at a ratio of 90:1. It means that if you put 90 cubic meters of loose EPS into the machine, you will get 1 cubic meters of EPS ingots after melting. The EPS recycling industry is a sustainable business for INTCO.
