Extruded Polystyrene (XPS)

Extruded polystyrene, often referred to as XPS, is manufactured by four different companies in the United States.

Each manufacturer has a unique color to differentiate their product.

The manufacturers have production facilities in different parts of the country, producing similar products. All four manufacturers produce a 25 psi, 40 psi and 60 psi density board. Dow and Owens Corning also produce a 100 psi board, and Owens Corning produces a 30 psi board.

For specific applications, extruded polystyrene panels are available scored so they can be snapped at 16” intervals instead of cut. They are also available with drainage channels along the long edges for use in rooftop landscaping applications.

Some of the manufacturers produce panels that are company specific and are used for unique applications.

Universal works with all the manufacturers to provide products that are used in commercial construction. Not all products are provided in every region of the country.
