ACH Foam Technologies’ DuraTherm® GPS (graphite polystyrene) offers the same benefits of DuraTherm® EPS with the added ability to reduce material thicknesses by up to 20% while maintaining the same thermal performance. DuraTherm® GPS is comprised of many small pockets of air within a polymer matrix containing graphite. The graphite reflects radiant heat energy like a mirror, increasing the material’s resistance to the flow of heat, or R-value.
In addition, DuraTherm® GPS is a strikingly sharp, beautiful silver/grey color and can be beneficial in reusable packaging and OEM applications that require the use of colored material. DuraTherm® GPS can be block molded, shape molded, and fabricated in the same manner as DuraTherm® EPS and is available at ACH Foam Technologies plants nationwide.
