Filcor (Expanded Polystyrene) is increasingly being specified for an ever-growing range of applications. The most common applications include use as a lightweight structural fill alternative to more traditional fill materials.
The versatility of Filcor means that any shape, size or profile can be manufactured with relatively short lead times. In addition, a range of materials of increasing compressive strengths are available to meet the loading requirements of the application, whilst also providing the most cost effective solution.
Filcor can be used for a range of applications including lightweight structural fill and insulation. The product can be manufactured in standard sheet sizes or alternatively profiled to the installer’s exact requirements.
Standard sheet/block 2400mm long x 1200mm wide x required depth.
Each Filcor sheet/block can be manufactured to the required depth, with a minimum depth of 25mm and a maximum depth of 1200mm.
Additionally Cordek can supply an individual Hot Wire Cutter for hire.
Please consult the Filcor Technical Data Sheet for details of the physical properties of the product range.
