What is EPS?
Expanded Polystyrene, or EPS for short, is an economical, versatile, lightweight, rigid, plastic foam insulation material produced from solid beads of polystyrene. The end product is made up of fine spherical cells that comprise 98% air.
EPS has a very high strength to weight ratio that, dependant on the density, offers exceptional compressive and flexural strength and dimensional stability characteristics.
EPS can be moulded or shaped to meet almost any requirement
EPS panels can be installed to the following various substrates: Timber Stud, Steel Stud, Concrete & Masonry
Please refer to our Technical Manual for installation guidelines.
Nutex offers a range of Grades and varying Thickness of panels
Our standards sheet dimensions are 2400mm x 1200mm (Non-standard sized sheet are also available on request).
The 75mm EPS panel is on average three times more thermally efficient than that of standard brick veneer construction

Part of the popularity of our Expanded Polystyrene cladding is because of it's incredible versatility as an external wall cladding application. Made using spherical polystyrene beads, it's a cost-effective external wall cladding product that can simply be moulded to any shape. Providing quality thermal efficiency, it's the ideal way to insulate buildings and homes of any size.
Are you a builder, architect or rendering contractor? Our popular and accredited EPS external wall cladding can simply and economically be applied through a mesh embedded basecoat, and second basecoat application and then texturing and protective coating. It's the addition of our Marbletex texture coating which makes EPS external wall cladding as attractive as it is energy efficient. Our NuShield Membrane can then be added to this, providing weather-proofing as well as excellent dirt shedding properties. EPS panels are applicable to a range of substrates, including timber stud, steel stud, concrete, masonry and concrete walls, it's a market leader for large-and small-scale external wall cladding contracts
