Extruded Polystyrene XPS

Product Definition

Extruded Polystrene Products XPS

Extruded polystyrene foam begins as a solid granule of polystyrene resin. The plastic granules are fed into an extruder, where they are melted and mixed with critical additives to form a viscous fluid. Next, a blowing agent is injected to enable the plastic product’s expansion. Under carefully controlled heat and pressure conditions, the plastic mixture is forced through a die into the desired shape. The rigid foam plastic is then trimmed to the final product dimensions and is usually recognized as boards.

The System:

Insulation system reduces the heat transfer through the envelope of a building.
Extruded polystyrene boards have closed cells with common sides and is produced with fully automated extrusion process in accordance with international specifications and standards. Extruded polystyrene has a high resistance to water absorption. The manufacturing process, combined with intrinsic qualities of the static component thermoplastic material gives it predictable performance and high insulating value.


Roof Insulation

Roof Insulation mostly known as the inverted roof concept or upside-down roofing, succeeds in insulating both the waterproofing membrane and the slab from extreme thermal stress.


Wall Insulation

Interior Wall Insulation : It is used where existing buildings require insulation, building with special exterior finishes and building with intermittent air conditioning. The Internal lining (Wall fix) can be used either with adhesives or by mechanical fasteners.
Cavity Wall Insulation – It is is an advantage where an external brick of any type and finish is required. Also, for any type for air conditioned buildings or GRC panels with adhesive or mechanical fasteners.
Exterior Insulation - It is most efficient way of insulating buildings without interrupting structure elements. It can be fixed behind granite or GRC panels with adhesive or mechanical fasteners.


Floor Insulation

Floor finish is particularly important in the hot weather areas, especially where the soil temperature is very high. Good floor insulation helps reduce heat flow through the floor into air conditioned buildings. Extruded Polystyrene boards are efficient due to their high compressive strength, high resistance to water absorption, moisture penetration and low thermal conductivity.


Advantages
  • Thermal Insulation Boards have several advantages, amongst are:
  • • Closed and uniform cell structure
  • • Extremely low moisture absorption
  • • Very good mechanical strength
  • • Long-term high insulation, performance efficiency
  • • Good dimensional stability
  • • High resistance to temperature cycling
  • • High resistance to ageing
  • • Very high resistance to water absorption.
  • • Does not require a vapor barrier.
  • • Not affected by cavity masonry wall construction.
  • • High long-term insulation value.
  • • Protects the inner walls from condensation.
  • • Easy to handle, cut and install.
  • • The boards are specially long to help cover more areas and therefore reduce installation time and cost.
  • • Available in a wide range of thicknesses.
  • • It has Tongue and Groove profiles on all four edges to eliminate thermal bridging.
  • • It does not rot or settle.
  • • It is extremely cost-effective in cavity wall applications.
  • • Strong rigid board, not easily damaged
