    Product Description

    Cordek Filcor Structural Fill Expanded Polystyrene 


    Cordek Filcor Structural Fill Expanded Polystyrene is increasingly being specified for an ever-growing range of applications. The most common applications include use as a lightweight structural fill alternative to more traditional fill materials.

    The versatility of Cordek Filcor Structural Fill Expanded Polystyrene means that any shape, size or profile can be manufactured with relatively short lead times. In addition, a range of materials of increasing compressive strengths are available to meet the loading requirements of the application, whilst also providing the most cost effective solution.


    Compressive Strength at 1% strain (kPa): 20

    Nominal Density (kg/m3): 15

    Thermal Conductivity Value +W/mK: 0.038

    Max Depth of Concrete (assumed 25k/N/m3) to not exceed Compressive Strength at 1% strain (mm): 800

    Filcor complies with both BS EN 13163:2012 and BS EN 14933:2007

    Coefficient of Linear Expansion: 0.6 - 0.9 x 10-6

    Coefficient of Friction (µ): 0.5

    Poisson's Ratio: 0.1 - 0.2

    Cordek Filcor Structural Fill Expanded Polystyrene


    * The standard (and  the maximum) block size is 2400mm long x 1200mm wide x required thickness. The thicknesses from 25mm to 1200mm, the length and width can be changed (max 2400mm x 1200mm)*


    Thermal Properties

    The thermal conductivity of Cordek Filcor Structural Fill Expanded Polystyrene is the rate at which heat energy passes through it and therefore the lower the value the better the material will insulate against heat loss (or gain). The reciprocal of thermal conductivity is called thermal resistance. The table below indicates both the thermal conductivity and resistance values for the various grades of Filcor available.

    Water Absorption, Flotation and Moisture

    Cordek Filcor Structural Fill Expanded Polystyrene is not soluble in water and its closed cell structure prevents the migration of water through the mass of the material. Absorption of

    water during submergence is relatively low (by % volume) and does not effect the mechanical strength of the material.

    Storage & Handling

    All Cordek products are clearly labelled prior to delivery, with thin sheets (less than 200mm thick) wrapped in a protective polythene cover.

    Individual sheets/blocks can be manually handled and offloaded upon delivery, depending on their weight – please consult the table on the following page for the unit weight of each Filcor grade.

    Due to the relatively light nature of the product, all Filcor sheets/blocks should be weighted down or secured (should they be stored outside prior to installation). No further storage requirements are needed as the product is unaffected by both UV light and water.


    Chemical Resistance

    Cordek Filcor Structural Fill Expanded Polystyrene is unaffected by water and aqueous solutions of salts, acids and alkalis. The use of adhesives, release agents and other commonly used construction chemicals in conjunction with Filcor should be considered to ensure compatibility prior to use.

    Where resistance to Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) or hydrocarbons is required, the use of a suitably resistant protective membrane, such as the Cordek Puraflex Membrane is suggested. Typically, Filcor blocks / sheets can be either individually wrapped or encapsulated as part of a larger installation with the Puraflex Membrane, which has been tested extensively for resistance against a wide range of chemicals and contaminants.

    Please consult the Cordek Puraflex VOC Membrane data sheet for further information.
