As you know, Dyplast periodically sends out Technical Bulletins related to mechanical (pipe) insulation in applications where temperatures are between low-temperature steam and cryogenic (such as LNG).
Dyplast is releasing this one-page Qwik Guide as an update on a general comparison between EPS and XPS. While EPS and XPS are both rigid, thermoplastic foam materials made from solid polystyrene, they are surprisingly different products with different applications and rarely compete. EPS is a closed cell foam and XPS is generally considered an open cell foam. Yet what are the actual implications in performance across various applications within in-situ environments? You will be surprised!
The engineering, design, and construction of capital-intensive projects (e.g. petrochemical, refrigeration, pharmaceutical, LNG, etc.) are typically guided by comprehensive Quality Control programs. QC originated in the early 20th century and has never stopped evolving.
Dyplast’s Qwik Guides are intended to provide a brief, one-page summary of important technical issues. The objective of this Qwik Guide is to address the temperature range [generally from ambient temperature up to +350°F (176°C)] where Polyisocyanurate and Calcium Silicate may compete.
Dyplast recently released two extensive Technical Bulletins on comparisons between elastomeric and polyisocyanurate insulants in refrigeration and process applications (Technical Bulletins 0520 and 0620, respectively), since there are some differences.
Dyplast is now issuing its latest Technical Bulletin 0620 comparing elastomeric insulation to polyisocyanurate in process applications such as food, beverage, and pharmaceutical. This TB is complementary to Dyplast’s May Technical Bulletin 0520 comparing the same insulants in refrigeration pipe applications. This sister-bulletin was necessary since process applications are different.
Dyplast has just released its latest Technical Bulletin comparing elastomeric insulation with polyisocyanurate insulation in refrigeration pipe applications. This is a rather comprehensive presentation and discussion of facts relevant to the selection of either elastomeric or polyiso in the general temperature range from -40°F to +40°F, yet the conclusions can be extrapolated to other temperature ranges, and process applications such as food & beverage.

Numerous energy-sector articles are reporting significantly reduced energy demand caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the historic fall in oil price. As a result, Financial Investment Decisions (FID) on LNG projects are delaying decisions on dozens of proposed projects.
Dyplast was very pleased to participate in the recently completed Lot 11 Skate Park in Miami. This skatepark was made by converting an old parking lot beneath the I-95 corridor into 45,000 square feet of a vibrant and free place for skateboarders, skaters, and non-motor scooters to practice their tricks.
