Specifier support literature for thermal insulation board

  • 1 Jun 2015

Sundolitt XPS is a lightweight and durable thermal insulation board. Designed to withstand heavy loads, XPS also features a water-resistant design to withstand severe weather conditions without the risk of deterioration.

XPS can be used for many applications, including cold store flooring.

XPS has a wide variety of applications, including; commercial and domestic flooring, inverted roofing, cold stores and civil engineering projects.

Philip Cheshire, Sundolitt’s UK General Manager, said: “XPS is an outstanding product and is already well accepted by many construction and civil engineers across the UK but we wanted to make specification easier for those who may not be fully aware of its potential.

“We have launched a new six page overview of the credentials of the material as well as a new product data sheet which outlines all of the options available to the professional specifier as well as indicating which of the popular specifications are available ex-stock for urgent projects.”

XPS comes as a rebated (ship lap) board to minimise thermal bridging as well as a butt edge board. Specifiers can choose from a number of options, including:

  • Compressive strength/densities from 250 to 700kPa (EN826)
  • Thicknesses from 20mm – 180mm
  • Embossed surface to facilitate adhesion to coatings and finishings
  • A tongue and groove edge
  • Drainage lined boards with non-woven membrane
  • Thermal conductivity starts at 0.033W/mK to EN13164

The specifier literature stresses the strong environmental credentials of Sundolitt XPS which – being 100% CO2 blown – uses no harmful greenhouse gases during manufacture and is recyclable at the end of its life.

The company also states that with the built-environment accounting for 40% of Europe’s energy consumption, the greater energy efficiency that comes from using products such as Sundolitt XPS can reduce total energy consumption in buildings and structures by 75%.

The new specifier literature is available by contacting Sundolitt’s UK expert team.
