No - that is not EPS. EPS is white, very light weight, breaks easily with a snap and will break up into small bits if scraped and the bits fly away in the slightest wind. Professionally it is cut with a hot wire otherwise any saw (blunt or otherwise) will do it but this creates 'snow'

There are lots of there suppliers including your local builders merchant.

There is also a grey coloured EPS (graphite impregnated) that gives better insulation / mm but is more expensive and only justified if a particular insulation value is required and space is limited.

EPS is an oil based product but the expenditure of the oil more than justified when the energy saved over the life of the product is considered.

What you showed in your picture looks like a light weight building block. Thin sections (5 cm) are used fro bricking in the sides of baths prior to tiling, 10 cm can be used for partition walls and 25cm + thick can be used for structural walls. I don't like them because they are difficult to get screws to hold making shelves and alike difficult.

Excellent ... thank you again Peter ... no idea why there is some of that in the barn but I will continue to ignore it !
