Kingspan Reimagines XPS with Kingspan GreenGuard

  • 1 Feb 2019

Kingspan Insulation has introduced the latest advance in XPS insulation — Kingspan GreenGuard — an all new range of boards with supreme compressive strength.

Kingspan GreenGuard has been developed to handle the most challenging of applications, including the floors of aircraft hangars and industrial units.

Kingspan GreenGuard replaces the popular Styrozone range and is available in three grades to suit differing requirements.

Kingspan GreenGuard GG300 has a compressive strength of 300 kPa (minimum compressive stress at 10% deformation when tested to BS EN 826 : 2013) making it perfect for applications with medium loading such as cold store floors.

For more demanding areas, such as car park decks and aircraft hangars, Kingspan GreenGuard GG500 and GG700 are also available.

These products have compressive strengths of 500 and 700 kPa respectively (minimum compressive stress at 10% deformation when tested to BS EN 826 : 2013), helping to maintain surface integrity whilst providing excellent insulation performance.

The lightweight boards also provide an effective means of insulating inverted roofs. In these applications, they can withstand freeze-thaw cycling and provide protection for waterproofing systems, extending their lifespan.

Their phenomenal compressive strength also makes them compatible with most green roof systems.

Kingspan GreenGuard is manufactured on an all new production line at Kingspan’s facility in Selby, North Yorkshire.

The line’s advanced design includes a 100% recycled waste stream, minimising the environmental impact of the boards. They are also manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP).

NOTE: Kingspan Insulation Ltd is not associated with, and its products have not necessarily been tested by, the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute.
