STYROQ Beads are light weight, white color, fire retardant, pearl shaped, closed cell Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) beads, the diameter of the beads normally ranges from 3 to 12 mm with apparent density of 8-15 Kg/m3.
STYROQ Beads come in 2 types, the Virgin beads and the Re-ground beads. Virgin beads are perfectly smooth and spherical in shape, approximately 3 -12 mm in diameter. They are denser than the re-ground beads, so they support tightly with their round shape.
Re-ground beads are large block of polystyrene STYROFOAM® grounded to make small beads with approximately 3 – 15 mm diameter. They are also known as pre-consumer recycled beads, designed to carry out the environment friendly campaign of re-cycling.
