SOPRA XPS - Cellular plastic thermal insulation board made from up to 100% recycled polystyrene

SOPRA XPS is a highly resistant, highly moisture-proof, and easy-to-cut insulation. Made from up to 100% recycled materials, this insulation does not lose any of its insulating qualities. Ideal for all applications: roofs, walls, floors for indoors and outdoors, it can be used by an individual as well as a professional in new or renovation. The main objective of the SOPRA XPS solution is to provide a product recognized for its thermal performance and its specific characteristics but manufactured with a raw material that is largely recycled. And thus it offers a reliable, sustainable, and responsible solution for the planet while limiting its impact on the environment while giving a second life to already used products.
