ICC-ES ER5999, Surface Burning Characteristics CAN/ULC-S102: Korolite® 100, 160 and 250
The panels are 48" [1219mm] wide, 2-11" thick [50-280mm] and custom-cut to lengths per approved designs. The panels' facings are pre-painted, 26 or 24 gauge, G90 galvanized sheet steel bonded to the EPS core with a specially formulated adhesive. EPS is a closed cell, rigid foam that uses Air as main ingredient.

Floor Panel Uniform & Concentrated Loads per NBC 2010
Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is resistant to mold & fungi per ASTM C1338 and has no nutritional value for insects. To protect against termites place adequate physical barriers such as membranes around below-grade EPS.
Limiting Oxygen Index: min. 24% per ASTM D2863. Airfoam's EPS for construction applications contains a polymeric (non-HBCD) flame-retardant modifier.
Max. service temperature: Long-Term Exposure 75°C [167°F]; Intermittent Exposure 80°C [176°F]
Thermal expansion coefficient: 5-7 •
Capillarity: None; Buoyancy-Force: min. 900 kg/m³ [56 lbs/ft³]
Solubility: Insoluble in water and in general chemically inert. EPS dissolves in hydrocarbons (e.g. fuels, oils, tar), organic solvents (e.g. acetone/ketones, benzene, paint thinner), ethers, esters, aldehydes and amines.
Load Distribution: Poisson's ratio ≈0.12 within the elastic range; Coefficient of Friction: ≈0.5 along molded, clean faces
UV-light surface degradation: white EPS can be exposed to direct sunlight for a few weeks. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light creates a yellow dust on the surface of EPS products, which has negligible impact on the products' properties but may require removal before adhering other materials such as stucco or self-adhesive membranes.
GHS Classification: Non-Hazardous, see SDS
CAUTION: EPS products are combustible and must not be exposed to excessive heat, sparks, open flames, or any other sources of ignition. If stored/used in closed containers, confined, or low-lying areas, ensure adequate ventilation to prevent accumulation of flammable pentane vapours. Prevent inhalation of smoke, fumes or dust from burning or fabrication activities.
