Superior R-Value – Superior Strength – Superior Moisture Resistance
Foamular Extruded Polystyrene is guaranteed to maintain its physical properties and a minimum of 90% 'R' value for a period of 20 years. The key to maintaining thermal performance is to reduce moisture absorption. Foamular's closed cell manufacturing process removes gaps between the cells, eliminating places for the water to enter through, so it maintains its thermal and physical properties, even in continuous moist situations.
Polyboard Enviro 300 is an extruded polystyrene board with Zero Ozone Depletion potential (ODP). It can be used anywhere where Foamular is used, giving superior R-Value, strength and longevity to any project, with the added benefits of Green Star compliant, exceedingly environmentally friendly insulation.
The extrusion manufacturing process gives Foamular Extruded Polystyrene many benefits over expanded polystyrene and polyurethane, including superior thermal properties, superior load bearing capacity, and increased moisture resistance. These qualities produce a more energy efficient building, with a longer lifecycle and a quicker payback period.
Extruded Polystyrene is an exceptionally versatile product, and as a result it can be used in a multitude of applications, including:
- PRMA – Protected Roof Membrane Assembly.
- Green Roof Garden Insulation
- Commercial Underslab Insulation
- Underslab Insulation In Heated Slab Applications
- Lightweight Construction (EIFS)
- Cold Storage Floor Insulation
- Insulated Concrete Sandwich Panel Wall Systems
- Masonry/Brick Cavity Wall Insulation
- Wine Storage And Wine Cellars
- Model Making Foam.
