Warning: there are two types (two different foam processes) of Polystyrene: EPS and XPS.
EPS is light inflammable, often used for packing filling in boxes for fragile things.
XPS on the other hand, is used for building. Because of this different process, this foam is extinguishing.
We used pressed EPS blocks from BCC for building things in the gallery space. They are actually pressed for a good effecient waste.
The blocks are different in sizes, but normally around 120cm x 40cm x 40 cm. Weight 40kg.
They catch fire, but not really fast. The polystyrene melts.
