Product Solutions & Innovation
Expanded polystyrene is available in a variety of shapes and sizes providing high shock absorption, high thermal resistance, and high compressive strength for construction, packaging, and OEM applications. Due to its unique properties, it provides more effective protective packaging or thermal properties over other materials and was even selected by the Department of Defense as the exclusive material to ship the COVID-19 vaccines.
More recent technology has developed a resin that facilitates anaerobic biodegradation of material in biologically managed or wetter landfill conditions in 4 years. This innovative technology provides the same thermal and physical properties as typical EPS for applications such as protective packaging or cold chain applications.
Messaging & Advocacy
EPS contributes to a safer, healthier, and more energy-efficient society. Because of this, Atlas is dedicated to sustainability and supporting a circular economy. As an extension of our commitment, we provide support and guidance to our customers, supply chain partners, and local municipalities to increase EPS collection for recycle and limit the amount of material diverted to the landfill.
