Cavity wall insulation

The insulating material is foamed particle polystyrene in granulate form. It is produced using a volatile propellant such as pentane. The expansion of the polystyrene balls takes place at temperatures of over 100 °C and with the addition of steam. Its closed-cell structure prevents the uptake of water.
The material consists of 60 % foamed particle polystyrene in granulate form and 40% foamed particle polystyrene in powder form. The powder which is a by-product from cutting polystyrene sheets fills up the cavities between the granulate balls. This material does not have to be treated to make it water-repellent due to its closed-cell structure.
