Thermo boxes

made from 35% recycled material*

35% recycled material*

We produce our EPS boxes with up to 35% recycled content*. This conserves fossil raw materials.

Comparable characteristics

Comparable mechanical and thermal properties of thermo boxes to conventional EPS.

CO₂ₑ savings

Recycled content in our EPS thermo boxes reduces your carbon footprint compared to boxes made from conventional EPS.

100% recyclable

Styrofoam is 100% recyclable. Styrofoam boxes made from recycled content also get a second life at the end of their life cycle.

Strengthening the circular economy

Recycling materials into new EPS thermo boxes instead of disposing of them strengthens a sustainable circular economy.

Cooling elements or dry ice

Our thermo boxes are suitable for use with cooling elements or dry ice. You are welcome to have a look at our cooling elements.

Thermo box for shipping of sensitive food

A EPS thermo box is particularly well suited for shipping foodstuffs due to its low weight and excellent insulating properties. Meat and fish, but also other frozen foods can be transported safely over a longer period of time.

However, an insulated styrofoam recycled thermo box is also a good choice from an economic point of view. If you decide on a thermo box from our standard program, there are no tool costs for you. In addition, the chosen styrofoam box is available at short notice and can therefore be used quickly.

In addition, the thermo box made of up to 35% recycled Styrofoam is of course approved for direct contact with foodstuffs.

Polystyrene box and sustainability

Conventional polystyrene is made from fossil raw materials. EPS boxes made from recycled Styrofoam use up to 35% recycled materials. The advantage of the process: as the subsequent production steps are identical, the thermal and mechanical properties of the polystyrene remain unchanged. However, with CO₂ savings compared to classic polystyrene.

The EPS thermo box is also 100% recyclable. Unfortunately, this is often not the case with coated cardboard or paper.

Thermo box with a long tradition

The Schaumaplast Group can draw on over 50 years of experience as a polystyrene manufacturer. Since 1964, moulded parts and packaging made of EPS, commonly known as Styrofoam® or airpop®, EPP and other particle foams have been produced. Today the Schaumaplast Group is represented at three locations in Germany. There are also plants in Poland and the USA.

Under the brand name THERMOCON, Schaumaplast’s own business unit focuses on the development and manufacture of reliable cold chain solutions.
