Foamular Extruded Polystyrene, the Perfect Choice for External Insulation and Render Substrate

Kynfield Residential and Commercial Building Contracts have chosen Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Insulation as the External Insulation/Render Substrate for their latest residential project in Putney.

Kynfield is committed to green building principles and the benefit of Foamulars High R Value for Thickness (75mm = R2.67) plus the extra benefit of an External Insulator System will greatly reduce energy demand over the lifetime of the residence.  Foamular is a truly green product. It is created using an environmentally friendly HCFC Blowing Agent and its high insulation levels means it reduces household heating bills. With over 90% of Australians electricity coming from burning coal, Foamular has the potential to reduce Australia’s carbon footprint.

Foamular’s thermal insulation properties are guaranteed to maintain at least 90% R-value for 20 years. Foamular’s closed cell structure means it cannot absorb water, creating a waterproof membrane. Insulation that absorbs water will often have dramatic losses in R-value once wet.

Extruded Polystyrene Panels are lightweight and can be screw fixed directly onto studs or masonry, and then finished with a Polymer Modified (PM) render system. The panel design creates a seamless render that is impact resistant. Fixing the insulation over the external wall frame greatly reduces thermal movement or “bridging’ thru the stud frame.  External Insulation is up to 30% more energy efficient than using batts in walls.

Lower Energy Demand = Lower Operating Costs = Lower Green House Gas Emissions.
