Eurocell 150 F - Technical Data Sheet

Product Description:
Eurocell® 150F, spherical beads, is produced as “Expandable Polystyrene” containing Pentane as expansion agent and flame retardant additive.

Typical Properties:
Bead Size Description (mm): 0,7 – 0,9
Sieve Analysis: 0.7 mm - 1.12 mm min %96
Bulk Density : ≈ 615 kg/m3

Application:
Eurocell® 150F is an EPS class with flame retardant, which can be produced in density ranges between 16 kg/m3 – 24 kg/m3 suitable for high quality block molding and shape molding with a section thickness of 10 mm and higher, ensuring rapid molding with its short cycle time.
Eurocell® 150F in general, due to legal and safety evaluations, is used for industrial packaging containing flame retardants, heat insulation and for the production of high density blocks, jamb, mold panels, molded or block cut construction elements.

Packaging:
All Eurocell® products packaging are made in standard big-bag packages of 1100 kg or 1125 kg. The product protection is ensured by means of a content insulated plastic inner lining placed between the product and big bag.

Storage:
Eurocell® 150F should be stored in well-ventilated storage areas with a temperatures preferably not exceeding 25°C. It should be protected against unsuitable weather conditions and direct sun light. Partially used containers should be closed as tight as original conditions, paying attention to avoid any space between the raw material and lining, and should be consumed in a short time. In order to maintain the expansion potential it is recommended to start the transformation within one month after delivery, if the package is not opened.


Process:
From expansion of the beads to block or mold shaped products, the entire transformation process is managed with water vapor. Eurocell® 150F is expandable in a single expansion at densities between 16 kg/m3 – 24 kg/m3. The minimum density achievable may vary depending on the expander type and process conditions.
As temporary storage time in silos are 12-24 hours recommended depending on the density, atmosphere and process conditions. For special applications please contact our technical service.

General Information:
Eurocell® 150F requires to be avoided restrictively from sparks and flames during phases of processing and storage. Grounding of entire equipment and machines are required, in order to prevent against static electricity development on the product conveying lines and during product processing. Also ensure ventilation on floor level during the storage and process phases. Please make sure to read the “Material Safety Data Sheet” (MSDS), which contains entire details of the measurements required to be taken.
The fire reaction of products, obtained by processing of Eurocell® 150F, are certificated as “E class” as per the EN 13501-1 standard. Depending on the obtained density and atmosphere conditions; it should be considered that products obtained by processing Eurocell® 150F may contain Pentane gas after the process, and accordingly they should be matured for a sufficient time in order to ensure the removal of the Pentane. The effect of the flame retardant additive is only released after total elimination of Pentane trapped in the final product.

Eurocell® 150F is not suitable and not permitted to be used in food contact applications.
Eurocell® 150F is produced in Izmir, Turkey.
