Styrodur® - For more than 50 years the proven insulation of the future!

Thanks to Styrodur®, BASF can look back on more than 50 years of experience in the XPS market. It was in 1964 that the company began producing this green insulation, which excels with its high quality, diverse applications, and robustness.

Styrodur stands for technology “Made in Germany” and for unique, steadily evolving work to obtain approvals.

For generations, Styrodur has convinced planners, architects, craftsmen, builders, and building material suppliers

Styrodur® has been relied on for more than 50 years in the XPS market and for construction uses. This makes Styrodur the XPS backed by the most experience today. Day after day, we channel this experience into our approval and development work. The results are persuasive: the test of time has shown that Styrodur used as building insulation lasts for generations.
