Dow inventors of Styrofoam extruded polystyrene insulation, developed XENERGY to significantly improved LAMBDA insulation performance and to deliver a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than five.
The Dow manufacturing process uses CO2 as the blowing agent, adding infra-red blocking particles to scatter and reflect heat radiation within the foam board, increasing LAMDA values by 11%.
Dow Building Solutions has decades of history in the construction industry, which began with the launch of Styrofoam extruded polystyrene insulation in the 1940s, and there have been a number of key innovations since then.
XENERGY SL, the first XENERGY product available in the UK, is designed to offer highly moisture-resistant flat roof insulation at thinner thicknesses than conventional XPS alternatives.
XENERGY SL offers 4mW thermal conductivity gains in various thicknesses.
Chris Gimson, head of commercial at Dow Building Solutions: The UK is leading the way with the commercial roll-out of XENERGY, a product which has numerous benefits, including significantly improved thermal performance. It signifies a new era for the business and demonstrates our commitment to formulating and manufacturing the highest standard insulation materials.
