Established in Qatar in 2014, Forma Polystyrene Factory is a leading producer of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) and Extruded Polystyrene (XPS).
Within a short time, Forma became a market leader in Expanded Polystyrene products through its focus on product innovation, good customer service, and expanded capacity.
Our facilities are located in the New Industrial Area, and accommodate two separate running EPS plants, and one state-of-the-art high capacity XPS production line, making us the largest polystyrene manufacturers in Qatar in terms of capacity and customer reach.
Established in Qatar in 2014, Forma Polystyrene Factory is a leading producer of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)
and Extruded Polystyrene (XPS).
Comprised of about 98 percent air, expanded polystyrene is extremely lightweight making it ideal for installation and volumetric material filling.
EPS is a closed cell material and does not readily absorb water. Even when subjected to prolonged saturation in water, EPS will still maintain its shape, size, structure, and physical appearance and will retain 80% of its thermal value.
The cellular structure of expanded polystyrene makes it dimensionally stable and therefore does not deteriorate with age. Recent studies have demonstrated that EPS filled in the ground will maintain its dimensional stability over a 100 years’ life cycle.
Expanded polystyrene has superior thermal properties that is quantified through its “R-value”, or thermal resistance, which is an approximate measurement of how much the material impedes the transfer of heat.
EPS can be manufactured into almost any shape or size, and can easily be cut or shaped when required to suit any application. Furthermore, EPS can be coated with many different coats including cementitious and plastic coats.
EASE OF USE
Given its light weightiness and versatility, EPS is widely considered to be one of the easiest materials to install on site. Furthermore, it can be easily shaped and formed into any 2D or 3D shapes.
The manufacture of EPS produces no ozone depleting gases and uses no chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Furthermore, EPS waste can be 100 % recycled back.
Our EPS material is Class A Fire Retardant in compliance with ASTEM E84/UL 723 and Qatar Civil Defence Department.
