- What Customers are saying about StarRfoam
At Star R Foam we value each and every customer. We are a privately held EPS Manufacture and we appreciate all of our customer that purchase foam from one of our three EPS Manufacturing facilities. Here is what one of our customers recently said about us. We thank them for their kind words.
“We purchased 50 EPS blocks from you for a Scouting / Charity sailboat event our yacht club was promoting in East Texas. Our sailing event we held on Lake O’ the Pines, Jefferson, Texas on May 14th and was a phenomenal success! We even raised over $12,000 for our charity! We attracted over 250 people, over a 100 were kids. With 26 boats competing and 46 skippers and crews, we ran 8 downwind drag races (200m). These little drag racing sailboats were a big hit! Weighing only about 50 pounds, supporting 300 lbs of crew weight and only costing about $150 each made this a true grassroots sailing event for kids and adults of all ages.
Thanks for all your help and assistance!”
- EPS R-Value
Insulation is a major concern when considering energy consumption of buildings. Builders today are embracing new technologies and products to reduce energy consumption and maximize returns while maintaining quality standards.
Thermal resistance – or the resistance of heat flow through insulation – is crucial to achieving reduced energy consumption in building designs. Thermal resistance is commonly referred to as R-value. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power of an insulation.
EPS insulation has found numerous application areas across a wide range of industries due to its light weight and rigidity, as well as its thermal resistance properties. While the trapped gases in the cells of Polysio and XPS foam may provide an initial high R-value, these products have been found to lose R-value over their lifetime. Unlike Polyiso and XPS, EPS provides a permanent lifetime R-value and does not lose R-value over time.
The five year and 50 year R-values for EPS are the same as the initial R-value since the gas trapped in the cells of EPS is atmospheric air. This is one reason the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) chose EPS as the Standard Reference Material for Thermal Conductivity (SRM 1453), using a lot of samples certified in 1996 that still provide the same R-value today.
To learn more about long-term thermal resistance and R-value performance, refer to this EPS Technical Bulletin.
- Star R Foam Moving to New Arlington Facility
Starrfoam is excited to announce that we will soon relocate from our original Fort Worth site to our newest and most technologically advanced facility in Arlington, Texas.
Since the company was founded in 1982, our corporate headquarters has been located in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards. Star R Foam’s quick growth led to the expansion of the plant, which now encompasses four main buildings on 6.5 acres of land.
Current installation is underway at our new facility located at located at 3220 E. Avenue F in Arlington, Texas. Star R Foam acquired a 106,752-square-foot building on 7.2 acres of land to build our newest facility.
Star R Foam’s newest state-of-the-art facility is expected to be in full operation near the end of 2014.
- Tapered Roofing Systems
Building owners looking for a logical, cost-effective roofing system should consider tapered EPS insulation. Tapered EPS maintains long-term performance, dimensional stability and consistent moisture-resistance, while effectively controlling the transfer of heat within all roofing systems.
Developed by Star R Foam, StarR Tapered is a lightweight, closed cell, rigid insulation product manufactured from high-quality expanded polystyrene (EPS). StarR Tapered meets or exceeds ASTM C578, Standard Specification for Rigid, Cellular Polystyrene Thermal Insulation.
Star R Tapered is ideal for lightweight concrete systems applications and can be used for slope creation. Its proven performance and environmentally-friendliness make it the perfect choice for your roofing needs.
