IKO PLC has launched a new BBA approved insulation board manufactured using unique Micro Cell Technology (MCT).
IKO enertherm has a multi-layer lamination and has a lambda value of 0.022W/(m.K), meaning thermal insulation values can be met using thinner boards.
Manufactured with Micro Cell Technology, IKO enertherm insulation boards retain their shape and dimensional stability longer than other PIR boards.
The insulation boards are rot and mould-resistant due to the board’s MCT structure which offers a low long-term moisture absorption rate of <0.6%.
MCT also gives enertherm more flexibility and compressive strength, so the boards can be trafficked without rupturing or causing indentations.
IKO has published a new Design and Specification Guide alongside the product’s launch. The guide explores the various uses and applications of IKO enertherm, including insulating flat and pitched roofs, lofts, basements, floors, vanity walls and outside walls.
