Ecobill MD/® insulation is made from a blend of certified graphite polystyrene and recycled polystyrene microbeads, injected with a water-based acrylic binder into an existing or new space. In-situ contact point agglomeration technology. The agglomerate dries and sets in a few days. This insulation product exceeds the requirements of the CAN/ULC S701.01.2017 (including amendments) Quality Standard for Factory-Built Board Rigid Polystyrene Insulation.

The wall is drilled
Drilling the lining wall. The location of the 25 mm diameter injection holes is designed according to the void to be filled.
We fill the wall with microbeads and binder
Filling using Inject-Styrene’s patented special gun. Beads and binder are mixed during injection.
Plugging injection holes
The holes have been plugged, and the wall is now insulated “forever”.
The injected microbeads now form an insulator
The polystyrene beads are injected with a glue that hardens to form a rigid agglomerate that conforms to the shape without settling.
Ecobill MD/® insulation is produced by injecting agglomerated polystyrene microbeads to fill air gaps of 1 inch (2.5 cm) minimum and 16 inches (40 cm) maximum. In addition to its high thermal value, Injected Microbead Insulation provides excellent control over air movement.

Advantages and benefits
- No demobilization of the occupants.
- Protect the built heritage.
- Easy, fast, clean and low-cost installation.
- No construction waste or harmful dust.
- Inject behind cabinets and sanitary equipment
- High thermal value
- Stable, permanent insulating value
- Unsurpassed injection efficiency in air gaps between 1′ and 4′ inches thick (2.5 cm to 10 cm)
- The injection process involves no risk of pressurizing the partitions.
- Polystyrene microbeads encapsulate and conform to any shape in the partition. As a result, it fills voids completely (even in 2-3 mm wall gaps).
- Eliminates convection and air movement in walls. This increases the building’s energy efficiency while reducing energy consumption.
- Improved occupant comfort.
- Stable over time, the agglomerate is not subject to settling or shrinkage.
- Non-hydrophilic, air- and water-permeable, prevents water accumulation and limits condensation and humidity problems.
- And it’s harmless to your health.
Limit of use
- Expanded polystyrene microbeads should be considered flammable when exposed to a source of intense heat. Expanded polystyrene must therefore be covered as recommended in the national building code.
- Filling can only take place in voids consisting of two rigid walls. Adheres, but does not stick to surfaces.
- Must not be used in the presence of other granular or fibrous insulating materials that could be mixed with and contaminate or alter the polystyrene insulation, such as sawdust, mineral wool, cellulose, vermiculite, as well as any other petroleum-based solvent products and their emanations that could affect the composition of the insulation.
- Insulation must not be subjected to pressure. Crumbly to the touch.
- Must not be exposed to direct sunlight, inclement weather or heat sources over 90C.
- Not to be used in the presence of water, moisture or mould, or on materials showing major deterioration.
- Does not replace a vapour-barrier system. Use a liquid vapour-barrier coating on the walls before painting.
Ecobill MD/® environmental data
- Product classified as non-hazardous under the Globally Harmonized System (GHS).
- Contains no ozone-depleting HCFCs or HFCs.
- No harmful dust or fumes. Rated A+ by Véritas International for air quality.
- Can be injected into walls without demolition. Contributes to reducing GHG emissions due to the energy inefficiency of old, uninsulated buildings.
- Contributes to reducing the transportation of many construction materials and waste.
- In addition to eliminating landfill or processing of unusable materials.
- At the end of their useful life, injected polystyrene microbeads can be recovered and reused up to 2 times within the same injection process, without altering its effectiveness.
- EPS expanded polystyrene microbeads require almost 3 times less energy to produce than a factory-made rigid panel.
- Contains a minimum of 25% recycled material.
- Recycled polystyrene microbeads come from a positive sorting recovery program within a circular economy concept. Where the consumer/waste producer contributes to the recovery of post-consumer polystyrene through sorting at source.
- The microbeads are mechanically conditioned, without the use of chemicals.
- Does not contaminate contact materials that can be reclaimed.
Ecobill MD/® injection-moulded insulation meets the following standards and requirements: CAN/ULC-S701 (including modification)
