DYLITE®/Cup & Container


DYLITE® resin is a leading expandable polystyrene (EPS) resin in the global cup and container market. This high-performing resin is specifically designed for molding disposable products such as dual-use drinking cups, noodle bowls, takeout containers and ice cream containers.

DYLITE EPS resins offer highly consistent, extremely small and narrow bead-size distribution, allowing molders the opportunity to produce high-gloss, fast cycling products.

DYLITE resin complies with the following:

  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration Code of Federal Regulations title 21, section 177.1640 (Polystyrene) and 178.3010 (Blowing Agents)
  • The European Community Directive 90/128/EEC and 99/91/EC

Benefits include:

  • Better thermal insulation properties
  • Cold drinks stay cold longer in high temperature conditions
  • Hot drinks stay hot while not thermally conducting the heat, keeping customers’ hands cool
  • Eliminates the practice of “double cupping”
  • Foam cups made from DYLITE resins produce less condensation on the outer walls of the cup
  • Less condensation results in a stronger container
  • Strong and lightweight


  • Contains no CFC’s (Chlorofluorocarbons)
  • Takes 30% less energy to produce an EPS container than a coated, bleached paperboard container
  • Can be 100% recycled
  • Extremely efficient use of material — 95% air
