EPS: the Extraordinary Product Solution

InSoFast panels wouldn’t be nearly as effective and moisture resistant if they were not made from Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Foam. This week on the blog the Insulation Corporation of America (ICA) will be taking us through the multi-step process of how EPS is manufactured, recycled and transformed into a variety of applications. Here’s your chance
The east bay of our shop, referred to as “the igloo” because of the cold wall, is now quite comfortable. The installer, an electrician by trade, took on the project to fill in between electrical jobs. He and my nephew had the wall covered in just over a day and a half. We have another wall to do and hope to have it completed within the next two months. It’s covered with pallet racking at the moment. Thanks for the great product and your technical support.

I just finished the walls with your InSoFast panels. I’m not a carpenter, I just found it very easy to work with. I just love it. I ordered some extra so I am going to use it on a floor in another room, too. I will be ordering more soon. Thanks for a great product.
I wish I had taken more pictures while putting the panels up, but they went “in so fast” that I really didn’t think of it until it was too late. I was very pleased with the InSoFast panels and I am in the process of writing a review on FineHomebuilding’s website. One of my initial concerns with this product was the lack of independent reviews, so I’ll help remedy that at least a little with a review. Thanks for making a great product.
