To ensure maximum comfort in the house, care should be taken not only about the thermal insulation of the walls, but also about the insulation of the floor. Today, there are a lot of insulation materials, but the most effective polystyrene foam is considered to be the most effective. Insulating the floor with polystyrene foam is a fairly simple procedure, which, nevertheless, allows you to make your home warmer. In addition, this material is non-combustible and environmentally friendly.
Modern polystyrene foam is a cheap material widely used both in country houses and city apartments. It is made by thermal expansion of polystyrene granules. As a result, the granules are sintered to form white material.
Each of the polystyrene foam granules consists of many microscopic cells with air. This can explain the extraordinary lightness of the material, because 97% of its composition is air voids.
