”Playing network” for EPSITALIA means, first of all, to know each other in order to find actual and future similarities.

The assumption that led to the establishment of EPSITALIA has to be found in the deep belief that corporate social responsibility does not end with the essential function of generating profits but includes an understanding of the business that requires social legitimacy to act and interact positively in the market. Our organization wants to learn how to deal fairly with its customers and wants to implement decisions and behaviours that can produce value for all parties involved in the economic process and in its business.

EPSITALIA wants to use practical tools for improving and monitoring the corporate social responsibility, to review and evaluate the results of the business of all members, not only in their economic dimension.

EPSITALIA wants to face the market with the characteristics of transparency, clarity and ethical relationships with the interlocutors.

EPSITALIA aims to the continuous development of human resources by creating the conditions for professional growth which can only lead to greater efficiency and productivity of the offered services. Moreover so much important is the attention that the network addresses to the health and safety of the workers.

The ecological aspects related to the network activities are constantly monitored in order to protect and respect the environment by continuously improving manufacturing processes. A decisive role is also dedicated to establish relationships with suppliers, which is known as a delicate and strategic topic. Suppliers must become true partners. A severe attention is paid to the unique choice of raw materials of proven high quality but that at the same time can ensure costs containment.

EPSITALIA will consider the customer as the key point of its success, and will work to their satisfaction, even focusing on the rules of social responsibility.

The network through the cooperation and the integration of resources can reach the goal of developing businesses and ideas much more than each single company could be able to pursue on their own individual business realities: the cohesion makes it possible to take advantage of the synergy of the network to strengthen its business or develop a new one, using the expertise gained from other participants. Activity carried out "jointly" may find expression in a research activity, which, despite the lack of immediate economical feedbacks, will take the single company through the implementation of the joint program, on another level of growth of innovative capacity and competitiveness in the market, not only as "individual" subject but also "collectively".

EPS - the product

Within the expanded polystyrene beads, a closed-cell structure is created. These cells hold within the air, preventing the convection currents and this give expanded polystyrene its excellent thermal insulation. The synterization is the process of welding the expanded polystyrene beads, which, once again subjected to the action of water vapor combine with each other to create a homogeneous block of foam.

The expanded polystyrene is a non-toxic foam, without CFCs or HCFCs, and is 100% recyclable. Many researches consider this material a model for its environmental cost/performance: its use saves much more energy than it takes to produce it

Obviously products do not have to be wasted in the environment as this stands true for any other material.

Today there is a method allowing the comparison between products and components on an equal footing and letting the civil designer or single user a proper choice: life cycle analysis (LCA). It is currently the only method that leads to the award of an index that can be compared between different cases by analyzing the entire life cycle of the item tested by examining all stages from raw material to final recycling. The LCA is a technique for assessing the environmental aspects and potential impacts of a product, involving the comparison of the technical characteristics and performances.

The LCA enhances the use of EPS contributes positively to the environment because the energy used to produce polystyrene foam is minimal compared to the quantity saved during the life of a building properly insulated with EPS.

The EPS is recognized worldwide as a material that does not create hazards to those who use it and install it, it creates no allergy, it is not toxic. Moreover steam and moisture do not damage the material. The mechanical and thermal properties are provided for the entire life of the building where it is installed. EPS is also available in self-extinguishing or flame retardant style so that in a fire process the material is considered as non-participant. Also the gases emission during exposure to the flame are less harmful than those emitted from such materials as wood or cork.

"The expanded polystyrene (EPS) is a rigid, lightweight, petroleum-derived foam. It is composed of carbon on and hydrogen atoms. Through an industrial process, from the petroleum small transparent beads of polystyrene are created. Pentane is then added to them, a hydrocarbon gas that acts as a blowing agent.

Through the contact with water vapor at temperatures above 90° C the beads containing pentane expand up to 20-50 times their original volume.

The EPS is recognized worldwide as a material that does not create hazards to those who use it and produce it, it creates no allergy, it is not toxic
and 100% recyclable

The company was born in 1971,Di-Bi faces the market of expanded polystyrene with a countertrend decision for that time: to focus on quality and on high performance products. It’s not surprising to realize that in a short time the company would become the first in Europe to create high density materials( 35-40 Kg/m3) and to put ,on the Italian market unknown labels which have become worldwide referring points in the business. This has led to a great number of patents which have carried the company into success. In early ‘90s two new lines have come to side to the traditional EPS panel productions, one dedicated to thermal insulation and waterproofing of roofs and the sound insulation in civil buildings.

Fortlan was born 1967 in the public construction field, in which, from the start it develops new products in insulating fibroid, detecting further applying methods.

The applications soon expanded to the building trade and the industrial systems, the thermo mechanic industry and to thermo hydraulic installations. In 1999 the company achieved the ISO 9002 certification and in 2002 ISO 9001-2000 certification. This evidences a caring industrial activity capable to follow the times and advance tendencies. Fortlan and Di-Bi paths were destined to come across thanks to trend affinity, territorial nearness and identical values.

Fortlan-DIBI desires to build, together with its partners and customers, in the building trade and industry by planning and creating materials and solutions suitable for thermo-acoustic insulation of buildings and industrial equipment. The company believes that thermal insulation avoids waste by using at its best the necessary resources. Fortlan-DIBI represents a referring point for industrial designers, producers and for final users regarding the development of most efficient insulation system for any application.

I valori della nostra rete d'imprese sono:

  • Qualità
  • Sinergia
  • Etica
  • Ecosostenibilità
  • Know how
  • Innovazione

EPSITALIA è una Rete tra industrie specializzate nella trasformazione dell'EPS in manufatti.

Le 6 aziende propongono una gamma di prodotti completa per il risparmio energetico nelle costruzioni.

smart village

Si è conclusa sabato la Mostra – Convegno dedicata alla sostenibilità e all’efficienza energetica degli edifici che ha visto la partecipazione di oltre 50.000 progettisti e imprese, organizzata nell'ambito di Made Expo 2012 da Edilportale e Made, in collaborazione con Agorà.

Lo Smart Village, alla sua prima edizione , ha offerto la possibilità alle aziende di incontrare negli Smart Box i visitatori, ottenendo così più di 1.000 'Archidating'. All’interno dell’area espositiva delle Smart Cities vi era l’allestimento fornito dalla Rete d’Imprese EPSITALIA (espositore anche nello Smart box), la rete di imprese costituita da aziende dedicate alla ricerca a e allo sviluppo di tecnologie edilizie ecosostenibili.

EPSITALIA è una Rete tra industrie specializzate nella trasformazione dell’EPS in manufatti. La gamma prodotti delle 5 aziende appartenenti abbraccia tutti i settori e tutti i campi dove l’EPS è presente: dall’imballaggio all’alimentare, dalla sicurezza al design e all’arredamento.

In particolar modo le aziende si distinguono nel settore dell’edilizia perché offrono al mercato non solo prodotti altamente tecnologici ma anche know how e consulenza alla progettazione. Per questo allestimento la Rete ha fornito ad Edilportale 140 panchette in EPS rivestite di poliuretano per le sedute dei convegni. Inoltre nelle aree adiacenti era possibile trovare altri elementi di design in EPS come divani, poltrone e chance long. Tutti gli elementi di design esposti sono stati sviluppati attraverso dei progetti creativi per oggetti e complementi d'arredo sfruttando le caratteristiche di un materiale semplice e allo stesso tempo versatile, che si presta all'esecuzione di qualsiasi idea di progetto.

L’EPS è infatti un materiale duttile e versatile che oltre ad essere impiegato per manufatti per l'edilizia può trovare un ottimo sbocco nel settore del design. E’ così che EPSITALIA si è mostrata al pubblico scegliendo lo Smart Village di Edilportale grazie al rapporto di collaborazione delle singole aziende con il portale web dedicato all’edilizia.

E’ per questo che Poliespanso srl, Mpe spa, Fortlan Dibi spa, Sulpol srl e STS Polistiroli srl si sono unite per portare avanti il progetto di responsabilità d’impresa e di etica sociale che prevede la valorizzazione delle risorse umane attraverso l’efficienza e la produttività dei servizi offerti per una crescita professionale.

Non solo, EPSITALIA offre ai suoi clienti una particolare attenzione alla scelta esclusiva di materiali di alta e comprovata qualità che garantiscono al contempo il contenimento dei costi. Una scelta che si sta rivelando vincente.
