XENERGY SL has been manufactured with infra-red particles which are incorporated into the extruded cell walls.
The particles disperse and reflect heat radiation which reduces heat transfer to keep a building cool during the summer and warm throughout the winter.
The product has been designed as a replacement for Dow’s STYROFOAM ROOFMATE SL-A. Its insulation performance has been improved by around 11%.
The product is being produced at Dow’s Kings Lynn production site as, by manufacturing it in the UK, the company hopes its appeal to specifiers who are environmentally conscious will increase.
XENERGY SL has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) and Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of less than 5.
