Regular/Shape Grade EPS
Regular grade EPS is designed for use in shape-molding for cushion packaging, produce and fish boxes, coolers and general applications not requiring flame retardants. It is typically fast-cycling for economic processing and quick production rates, with excellent fusion, part strength and appearance. NOVA Chemicals produces a broad range of regular grades in three bead sizes (A, B, and C) and with various levels of blowing agent (pentane) to meet a variety of density and processing requirements. Specific grades are certified with respect to food contact and the Restrictions of Hazardous Substances directive.
R625B, a recent addition to the Regular EPS family, includes 25% recycled content.
