Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Rigid Foam Insulation

Owens Corning’s patented Hydrovac® process technology under strict quality control measures, which makes it highly resistant to moisture and permits the product to retain its high R-value year after year even after exposure to moisture and freeze/ thaw cycling.

Key Features
  • Excellent long-term stable insulating performance at R-5 per inch3
  • Exceptional moisture resistance, long-term durability
  • Limited lifetime warranty4— maintains 90% of R-value
  • The only XPS foam to have achieved GREENGUARD Gold Certification
  • The only XPS foam with certified recycled content— certified by SCS Global Services to contain a minimum 20% recycled content
  • Will not corrode, rot or support mold growth
  • Zero ozone depletion potential with 70% less global warming potential
  • Lightweight, durable rigid foam panels are easy to handle and install
  • Easy to saw, cut or score 3 R means the resistance to heat flow; the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power
  • Reusable
How R-Value Works

R-value is cumulative, that is if you add boards together, you simply add the R-value. Two 25mm boards gives the same R-value as one 50mm or, you can add boards to give a desired R-value. 40mm (R1.42) and 50mm (R1.78) gives an R3.2, so you don’t need 100mm to achieve R3.

Foamular

FOAMULAR insulation’s R-value is based on real-time ageing and the product is warranted to maintain 90% of its insulating value for twenty years. FOAMULAR insulation has a combination of characteristics that yield very low water absorption and is available in a range of compressive strengths that accept loads up to their design limit with little deformation.

Insulation performance you can trust

FOAMULAR insulation has a combination of characteristics that yield very low water absorption and is available in a range of compressive strengths that accept loads up to their design limit with little deformation.

Extruded polystyrene has you covered

Durability, reusability, moisture resistance, and the ability to retain R-value in the presence of water enables FOAMULAR XPS insulation to be used in a wide variety of building applications from roof insulation to below-grade use where the insulation will be in constant contact with moisture.

PRMA insulation is placed directly over the waterproof membrane, providing protection for the membrane and also creating a continuous thermal barrier on the roof. Foamular is held in place with a specified ballast, usually gravel or concrete pavers.

Good insulation pays for itself

Foamular’s high compressive strength means it can easily be walked on once the specified ballast has been installed. This creates an easy space for maintenance crews to access the roof, but can also help create rooftop recreation areas, adding an extra usable space to the building and increasing urban public space. Extruded Polystyrene Insulation requires no additional waterproofing and can easily cope with regular water immersion making it ideal for retro-fitting on older buildings.
