Bonus XPS is a rigid polystyrene-based (extruded polystyrene - XPS) board that leading thermal insulation brand with high compression strength.
Bonus XPS application area is highly extensive. It can be used in buildings and industry, roofs and terraces, foundations, basement shear walls, parking lots, airport runways, railways, under or over concrete, under screed, sandwich roof and wall panels, refrigerated truck haulages, cold air storages, emergency huts, construction sites and military protection units, glass-free sections of profile systems, thermal insulated sandwich partition walls and breeding farms.
XPS Product Catalog

- Its thickness does not decrease over time thanks to its high compressive strength and bending strength. (100-700 kPA)
- It does not absorb water, it has high freeze-thaw resistance even in water.
- It has a high modulus of elasticity and dimensional stability.
- With its optimum vapor diffusion resistance, it has µ value suitable for the place of use.
- It can be used for recycling without mixing with other plastics.
- It has a constant and non-decreasing thermal conductivity (λ) value.
XPS Usage Areas
The usage area of Bonus XPS thermal insulation boards is quite wide. These areas; buildings, industry, roofs and terraces, foundations, basement curtain walls, car parks, airport runways, railways, under floor concrete, top and bottom of the roof, sandwich roof and facade panels, refrigerated truck chassis, cold storage, emergency barracks, construction site and We can list them as military purpose protection units, glass-free parts of joinery systems, heat-insulated sandwich partition walls, and fattening farms.
It is an ideal thermal insulation material with its low thermal conductivity, closed-pored water-proof structure, optimum water vapor diffusion resistance and ease of application.
XPS Production Standards
Bonus branded XPS Thermal Insulation Boards are produced on the basis of factory production control (FPC) procedures in accordance with TS EN 13164 + A1 "Thermal insulation products - For buildings - Extruded polystyrene foam (XPS) fabricated products - Features" standard. In addition, within the scope of this standard, it has CE conformity declaration and TSE certificate prepared based on approved test reports from accredited laboratories. It produces XPS, which provides ideal heat insulation with its quality controlled according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 Standards in all processes from production to sales.
While Bonus XPS meets all the requirements of being a nationally and internationally registered trademark, it takes its place in the international market with its CE conformity certificate. Bonus XPS products are produced according to EN standards, which means compliance with EU norms.
Frequently Asked Questions
+ How are XPS (Extruded Polystyrene) thermal insulation boards produced?
- XPS thermal insulation boards are produced by determining the desired thickness measurement by extrusion (compression) process along the line of polystyrene, its raw material.
+ Does thermal insulation lose its effect over time?
- If materials such as XPS and rock wool are produced, stocked and applied in accordance with the standards, their lifetime is generally as long as the life of the building.
+ Is it a very costly application to have thermal insulation?
- Heat insulation is an advantageous application that provides savings up to 50% in the medium and long term, as it maintains its performance throughout the life of the building. In addition, it increases the quality of life by providing a healthy place.
+ Can I determine the thickness of the outer walls and roof of my residence according to my budget?
- Insulation thicknesses on the outer walls and roofs of your house vary regionally and are determined by the calculation method to be made within the framework of TS-825 Thermal Insulation Rules. The TS-825 Standard is a standard that makes it mandatory to make the necessary insulation for a building to use energy efficiently, starting from the design phase, and limiting the annual heating and cooling energy need.
+ Does the insulation materials cause the building to decay by preventing breathing?
- The measurement that should be taken into consideration for the building to breathe is the μ value, and the evaluation should be made according to the μ value. Thermal insulation materials protect the building's bearing structure elements from the corrosive effect of external weather conditions with the sheathing, and protect the building from the stresses that may arise from temperature differences. Hot environments in summer and cold environments in winter create stresses due to expansion and contraction in the building elements that are not protected by sheathing. These stresses cause cracks in the building elements over time. Sheathing prevents the occurrence of these cracks and prevents corrosion that may occur in the iron reinforcement.
+ Is the thermal insulation only on the outer walls sufficient for the building?
- Contrary to popular belief, heat losses or gains are caused not only by the facade but also by the heat transmitted from the roof and floor. It is important to apply the required insulation to all facades of the building and to the floor and roof. The fact that the building floor is a reinforced concrete element causes a heat bridge effect on the floor and heat loss by rapidly transmitting the heat in the building columns to the soil.
+ Is it necessary to make jacketing in a very hot climate?
- The sheathing thermal insulation saves a great deal of energy and fuel used for heating in winter and cooling in summer. Just as energy is spent for the heating of buildings, a certain amount of energy is spent to cool and cool them. This electrical energy required in hot regions is about three times more expensive than what is needed for heating. Therefore, jacketing (thermal insulation) should be done in hot climate regions.
