Kingspan Insulation has launched a new ultra-low lambda cavity board which offers a thermal conductivity of just 0.018 W/m.K.
The BBA-certified Kingspan Kooltherm K106 and K108 cavity boards feature Kingspan’s fibre-free thermoset phenolic insulation core. This allows for a U-value of just 0.17 W/m2.K to be achieved, with an overall cavity of just 100mm in a standard masonry construction.
The K106 cavity board can installed with a mere 10mm air gap instead of the standard 50mm that is required in a standard partial fill cavity wall construction.
It also features a water-tight and vapour-open polypropylene fleece outer facing which protects against moisture penetration.
All of this means that building envelope requirements can be met or exceeded without sacrificing space or moving away from preferred cavity sizes.
Manufactured with a blowing agent that has no Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and very low Global Warming Potential (GWP), the cavity boards are non-deleterious, easy to install and are unaffected by air infiltration.
Kingspan Kooltherm K106 and K108 are certified to BES 6001 (Framework Standard for the Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products) ‘Excellent’.
