Read the latest news about innovative developments and applications with our original grey Neopor®, and news on the classic Styropor®.


70 years EPS by BASF

From life-liver to thermal insulation - 2021 we celebrate 70 years of innovation, cooperation and success

Since 1951, Styropor® and later the graphite-containing development Neopor® have been an important component of countless applications in the construction and packaging sector. The foams made of it are an important part of our everyday lives.

While Neopor® insulation products make a significant contribution to achieving the global targets for avoiding CO2 emissions in the building sector, Styropor® packaging protects our food from heat and cold exposure, as well as electrical appliances, from annoying transport damages - and, it can also be recycled very well, whether mechanically or chemically.

Since BASF was granted the first patent for the expandable polystyrene Styropor® 70 years ago, we have achieved a great deal together with our customers and are well positioned for future challenges.

Look forward to a special anniversary year with us. Let us look to the future with optimism, according to the motto:

Styropor® > Neopor® > expect more
