Maaseik, Belgium, October 27, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Expanded Polystyrene has had many names in Europe: Styropor, Styrofoam, PSE, Piepschuim or Polyfoam - to name just a few. We have now put an end to this variety. EUMEPS Construction proudly introduces a common European name for EPS: airpop® engineered air.
Why give a new name to an internationally established material like EPS? Simply because the name airpop immediately brings to mind what the material is made of: air. A lot of air. 98 % air, to be precise. Just a tiny fraction is made of synthetic material, which expands to 50 times its own volume. airpop® easily provides sustainable and affordable construction and insulation by keeping material costs, weight, CO2 emissions and heating costs low.
The airpop®-campaign is a joint industry initiative of EUMEPS, of European airpop®-converters, of their respective National EPS Associations and of European EPS raw material producers. The creative concept was developed by the communication agency Ogilvy & Mather, Frankfurt / Germany.
airpop® represents an industry of approx. 600 mainly small and medium sized converters in Europe. They process about 1.300.000 tons of raw material into airpop® products. The main applications are building and construction as well as packaging parts.

Founded in 1989, the European Manufacturers of Expanded Polystyrene (EUMEPS) is an association which supports the European EPS industry through National Associations. There are two interest groups within the organization: EUMEPS Power Parts and EUMEPS Construction. Both EUMEPS sections promote the advantages of EPS material and provide information about its versatility.
