Raw Material

Be it packaging grade, flame retardant, high impact or fast cycling bead, Expanz can source the appropriate material for your application.

Expanz is a very proud business partner of Loyal Chemical Industrial Corporation, the world’s largest EPS manufacturer. Loyal’s King Pearl product is available both ex China and Taiwan in varying bag sizes.

In addition to the Loyal product, we also source specialty materials including, coloured EPS for items such as bike helmet black EPS and special high R value EPS (high thermal resistance). Our Heinfarben range of EPS colorants are suitable for both pre-expansion dying or inline dying during batch expansion.

We also supply fire retardant and intumescent coatings for coolroom panels.

With the strength of a nationwide logistics supply chain, Expanz can deliver your order to your requirements, unpacked, in the shipping container for you to unpack on site, or you can even arrange for your own carrier to collect it from our depots in all capital cities. We are more than happy to work with you to ensure your requirements are met.
