Versalis Extir® D 3000 AE Expandable Polystyrene - Flame Retardant
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polystyrene (PS); Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)

Material Notes: Product Description:
  • Extir D 3000 AE is a flame-retardant expandable polystyrene in the form of spherical beads of medium particle size, containing pentane as blowing agent.
  • Extir does not contain CFC or HCFC.
  • Extir D 3000 AE is used for production of shaped moldings with sections higher than 8 mm or medium density blocks. This grade is characterized by fast molding cycles, good fusion and low energy needs combined with a high mechanical strength and a good surface finishing.

Applications: Extir D 3000 AE is used mainly in medium section, medium / high density packaging where, for legislative or safety reasons, the use of flame retardant material is required. It is also suitable for the production of skin molded articles.

Typical applications are

  • industrial packaging, e.g. cathode ray tube protection
  • medium-high density blocks for thermal insulation
  • molded panels for underfloor heating
  • molded insulating drainage panels
  • molded or block-cut building components
