BASF insulation material Neopor for set construction


The film set designer Artrockz, Germany uses Neopor®, the expandable polystyrene (EPS) from BASF, to produce surface facings for decorative structures

The facings are used in film and television sets as well as decorative interior insulation in private residential buildings. The panels, which look fully three-dimensional with a relief surface, are replica models of bricks and quarry stones and can realistically recreate walls, roofs, and floors. So far, Neopor has been used primarily to insulate the facades of old and new buildings. The gray beads are an advanced version of the white classic insulation material Styropor® (EPS).
Artrockz foams Neopor using special self-developed molds at the company Storopack to create panels with a natural stone look. The foamed imitation masonry is noted for its natural-looking, detailed structures. Thanks to the fine-pored surface, the panels can easily be reworked or painted with wall paint. Individual coloring is possible using all commercially available and solvent-free indoor paints and facade paints. The material is easy to cut and can be attached to substructures, for example with commercially available dispersion adhesive. This means that a film set can be constructed quickly, and solid, durable interior insulation can be individually designed.
