EPFA includes companies that share an interest in the use of phenolic foam products within the insulation industry. The members are either producers of phenolic foam insulation resin suppliers or are companies closely linked with the industry through the provision of raw materials.

EPFA was established in 1990 to supersede the UK oriented Phenolic Foam Manufacturers Association (PFMA). The purpose of the extension to the activities was to reflect the increasing interest and usage of phenolic foams for insulation purposes throughout Europe. The European-wide membership also assisted with easier access for the industry to the relevant EC bodies on key issues.

Banning the use of Combustible Materials in the External Walls of High-Rise Residential Buildings

This Government consultation seeks views on our proposals to ban the use of certain materials.

Statement in response to the publication of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety

In light of the Grenfell tragedy a thorough review of the building regulatory framework and recommendations for its reform, is a vital first step in addressing weakness in building practices and to ensure public confidence.

Phenolic foam is a very versatile material suitable for a large range of applications where thermal performance, moisture resistance, fire performance and in certain cases structural strength are key performance criteria. Phenolic foam is the only material that can provide this unique range of benefits and is used in a variety of applications:

Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC)

The foam is cut to accurate tolerances on computer controlled cutting equipment.

Building and Construction

Phenolic foam is used in many building applications.

Factory Engineered Composite Panels

Composite panels comprise of a high density structural phenolic foam core with steel facings both sides.

Process / Petrochemical

Phenolic foam is used in process/petrochemical applications for the insulation of pipework, tanks, vessels etc.
