Application: Masonry/Brick Cavity Wall Insulation
Brick, masonry and concrete walls all benefit from the addition of Foamular extruded polystyrene insulation through improved thermal performance.
These types of construction have low thermal values. Masonry and brick are very good at storing heat but are also very good at transferring heat. Often bricks and masonry will heat up during the day, store that heat and then radiate it back into the house at night. Properly installed insulation can limit this transfer and dramatically improve energy efficiency.
A double brick cavity wall has an R-value of only R0.69. In comparison just 30mm of Foamular Extruded Polystyrene has an R-value of R1.07. Combining the two would provide an R-Value of 1.76 and vastly improve the walls thermal performance.
To meet BCA and BASIX requirements, Foamular XPS in various thicknesses can be easily fitted to meet thermal requirements. Highly energy efficient buildings not only save money, but are also worth more money.
Foamular Extruded Polystyrene is closed celled insulation, so it is not effected by moisture. It can reduce the transfer of moisture and is its physical properties are not reduced in the presence of moisture.
As a result of its reduced moisture absorption, it is guaranteed to maintain 90% of its thermal properties for 20 years
Recommended Material: FM 250, 25-40mm (To meet desired R-values)
