BASF now offers a new plastic grade for the manufacture of EPS (expandable polystyrene) foam packaging.

Packaging with High-speed


New Packaging Product Styropor® P 24 Speed with Reduced Molding Cycle & Conditioning Times


  • For the products in the Styropor® P 24 Speed range the pentane content has been lowered to approximately 4.8 per cent, thereby reducing molding cycle and intermediate conditioning times. 
  • The new grade Styropor P 324 Speed with a density of 25 grams per liter yields an up to 50 per cent shorter molding cycle time in comparison with Styropor P 326 at an average molding steam pressure.

Easy Processing for Food and E&E Packaging


  • Just like the classic Styropor P 26, this new type of Styropor is approved for food packaging and has a high mechanical resistance as well as excellent flexural and compressive strength. 
  • Moreover, it has good fusion properties and a smooth surface finish. 
  • As with all Styropor packaging grades, the new Styropor P 24 Speed is without flame retardant and especially suitable for the manufacture of thin-walled technical moldings as well as food packaging and cool boxes. 
  • The material is available in three bead sizes ranging from 0.4 mm to 1.3 mm. 
  • The new product rounds off BASF’s EPS range for the packaging industry.
