Minimal ignition danger

The potential for fire is dependent on the availability of oxygen. Due to the application for which many EPS building and insulation materials are used, their fire potential is minimised - since products are shielded by concrete, installed in walls, laid under floor or underground, and are therefore protected.

In the event of a fire, the gases given off by EPS do not differ essentially from those released by other organic materials, consisting primarily of carbon dioxide.
If a fire does occur, no special measures are required for dealing with the residues or water used to extinguish the fire.
Sundolitt insulation is also available in flame retardant grades which are more difficult to ignite than standard grades.
