EPS : Expanded Polystyrene Products.
We sell products to a diverse market, so to know the suitability of our products and EPS ( expanded polystyrene ) specifically, for every end user would be impossible. Below is information which is intended as a guide, but It is the responsibility of the end user to ensure that EPS is suitable for their needs.
Our products are mainly intended for Display / Decoration / Craft.
NONE of our products are intended as toys.
ALL the EPS we use contains a flame retarding additive.
All EPS products should be kept well away from hot lights / naked flames or any other source of ignition.
The EPS products are not sterile, and ARE NOT sold as "Food Safe". You should avoid any food that is to be consumed coming into contact with the EPS.
None of our products are suitable for small children. If EPS is broken / bitten, then small pieces can break off which can be a choking hazard.
If you are painting the EPS, you should only use water based paints and adhesives. Solvent based products can attack the polystyrene. When using any product on EPS, always ensure that it is suitable, and follow any safety instructions specific to the product. It is a good idea to try a small piece of EPS first, and check it an hours or so later to make sure there is no reaction. Emulsion paint, poster paint, PVA glue and LOW MELT craft glue guns are normally fine.
Safety information on any of our specific products is available on request.
