General Description:

SAPTEX HordiStyrene is a rigid closed-cell polystyrene hollow block made by a shape  molding process.   

SAPTEX HordiStyrene combines the best properties of expanded and extruded polystyrene.                                                                            

SAPTEX HordiStyrene has stable thermal conductivity that ensures constant insulation efficiency through 

out the lifetime of the building and is CFC & HCFC free.                                                                                                                                        

SAPTEX HordiStyrene has excellent bonding to concrete and is not negatively affected by it.                                                                                    

The stringent quality policy adapted by Saptex ensures that the product standard is maintained.                                                                            

SAPTEX Hordistyrene, has excellent physical properties, is dimensionally stable d absorbs very little water.




Light weight: Saptex Hordistyrene block measuring 20 (cm) X 25 (cm) X 40 (cm) weights very less than concrete 

hordi block (98.52% less dead weight on the construction).                                                                                                                                    

Thermal Insulation: Due to its low thermal conductivity value (0.032 to 0.034 w/mk). Saptex                                                                          

 Hordistyrene has a 5 times higher thermal resistance value than concrete or red hordi blocks.                                                                           

 Acoustic Insulation: due to the superior acoustic properties of polystyrene compared to concrete or red blocks,                                                        

 in addition, the improved design of the Hordistyrene block, it contributes to ACOUSTIC INSULATION properties,                                    


Finished Works:

 Saptex Hordistyrene blocks can be placed using one of the following methods:

1-     Use SAPBOND cement adhesive in the first plastering stage (spatter dash) or.

2-     Use wire mesh.
