Polystyrene Blocks
Polystyrene Blocks are Used as Building Materials
Polystyrene blocks are used in construction as permanent insulation in buildings. The blocks are energy efficient and ensure optimal insulation not only for walls of buildings, but also the roofs and even floors.
The polystyrene blocks are stacked and then the forms are filled with concrete. Building with blocks is a lot like building with the toy blocks. Once in place the blocks are used to give structure. As soon as the concrete is casted in the blocks, stability is gained. Rebars are placed in the foam blocks before the concrete is casted. The steel bars are used for reinforcement of the structure.
A specific method is used for the filling of the polystyrene blocks to prevent overflow or too much expansion. Once the concrete has become firmer, the units can be left in the exact spot. As such the foam structures are used as empty bricks and then filled with concrete. The polystyrene is not removed afterwards simply because the material forms a sound insulation as well as act as thermal insulation. Electrical wiring and plumbing pipes can be inserted in the polystyrene. This ensures quicker installation of electricity and plumbing pipes in a building.
With the interlocking polystyrene block system an exceptionally strong, yet, well insulated building can be constructed faster than is possible with the normal brick and mortar method. The steel connectors ensure flexible reinforcement of the structure.
Construction with polystyrene blocks as shells filled with concrete holds several benefits including:
• Extremely strong structure.
• Completed buildings are energy efficient as less heat escapes.
• Ensures lower sound emission from activities in a building.
• Fire safe materials ensure safer buildings.
• Environmentally friendly and clean method of construction.
• Show high wind resistance.
• Mould and insect infestations are eliminated.
• Recycled materials can be used to minimize the environmental footprint.
• Cheaper building method makes it a suitable alternative to normal brick buildings.
• Minimizes the risk of leakages.
• Long lifespan.
• The foam structures can be recycled.
• Improved comfort with minimal air leakage.
• Increases the sales value of a home or building.
• No rotting because of damp weather.
• Significant building management savings in terms of heat, airflow, and fire safety.
Because of the unique characteristics of the polystyrene blocks, from one storey to multi-storey buildings can be constructed faster and cheaper than normal brick and mortal buildings. The blocks can be used in residential, industrial and commercial construction projects. Since rotting is not a problem, basements can be constructed with the use of the blocks filled with concrete and rebars.
Cost and time savings are two of the most important considerations in the building industry. When building with block system it is possible to save on labour, time taken to complete the project and the overall construction costs.
The long term benefits of energy saving cannot be overstated. Environmental regulations will become stricter in future and by building with polystyrene blocks, companies can ensure that their buildings will meet environmental regulation requirements for sound pollution, energy saving, and recycle value of the materials used.

There are different types of Wall Finishes and its application

Here is the list of the Wall Finishes for decorating the Interiors and Exteriors:

  1. Stained Glass Finish
  2. Pebbles Finish
  3. Flakes Finish
  4. Coral Finish
  5. Canfor Finish
  6. Tile Cladding
  7. Wood Panelling
  8. Sand Textured Finish

Stained Glass Finish

It involves lot of creative work. The glass is decorated with itching, frosting, glass pasting and finally colouring with suitable colours according to the theme. The stained glass panels are used on walls and ceilings

Pebbles Finish

This a very simple and attractive finish obtained by pasting small pebbles on the walls with cement mortar as an adhesive.

Pebbles finish is usually preferred for exterior facade. It is also commonly used to give nice flowing effect to the waterfalls that are created especially designed for Hotel Interiors or as a part of Exterior Landscaping

Pebbles Finish

This a very simple and attractive finish obtained by pasting small pebbles on the walls with cement mortar as an adhesive.

Pebbles finish is usually preferred for exterior facade. It is also commonly used to give nice flowing effect to the waterfalls that are created especially designed for Hotel Interiors or as a part of Exterior Landscaping.

Flakes Finish

It is a special material used to enhance the elevation treatment of the building. It is majorly used for the exterior facade. It has also been used for the interiors but to a very small extent. Application of flakes finish is avoided in the interiors because chipping off of flakes is a trouble.

The flakes are applied with a trovel on walls over a coat of adhesive.

Coral Finish

Coral finish is similar to Plaster of Paris Finish and Gypsum Plaster Finish. Coral is the name of a type of plastering material. It gives a rough edgy finish.

Canfor Finish

Canfor finish is also known as Faux finish. This material is used for the interiors of residences. It adds a unique aesthetic appeal to the place. It comes in 6mm thickness and in different designs.

This finish is chosen when a false finish is to be given. It gives a stone wall or brick wall effect.

Tile Cladding

Different tiles, for example, granite, marble, glazed tiles or vitrified tiles are used for tile cladding. Tiles are available in a variety of colours and shapes. The selection of tiles depends on the place where it is to be applied i.e. interior facade or exterior facade.

Wood Panelling

It is a decorative treatment done with wooden panels on the walls in various designs. The material used can be plywood or wood covered with veneer or laminate.

Sand Textured Finish

Sand Textured finish is used to give fine texture to the wall. This wall finish is not very commonly used because of its grains coming out.
