Features & Benefits
|Long term insulation value||The thermal resistance (R value) of ThermaRoof® insulation is permanent because its cellular structure contains only stabilized air. Ageing has no effect on performance.|
|Cost effective||ThermaRoof® provides high R values per dollar and allows for very cost effective design.
It is lightweight, easy and quick to install, providing further savings.
|Moisture resistant||ThermaRoof® has excellent resistance to moisture absorption. Due to its closed cell structure, moisture gain has limited effect on thermal resistance values.
ThermaRoof® also offers a high degree of dimensional stability in wet conditions.
|High retained thermal resistance||Uptake of moisture is limited. US Army Corps of Engineering tests showed a 90% retention of dry R value at a 6% vol/vol moisture content.|
|Superior drain||8mm x 4mm channels allow easy drainage across the top of the membrane. Coupled with adequate roof design ThermaRoof® prevents prolonged water/insulation contact.|
|Temperature cycling resistance||Provides long-term consistent performance without loss of structural integrity or physical properties.|
|Lightweight, yet strong||A range of grades enables the designer to select the ideal grade to withstand specific loads of foot traffic, ballast and equipment that the roof will be subjected to.
Its light weight allows ease of handling and storage.
|Breathability||ThermaRoof® does not trap moisture, removing the need for costly venting required by other relatively impermeable insulation materials.|
|Environmentally sound||The EPS used in ThermaRoof® is 100% recyclable and has a small environmental footprint in production.
In addition it provides no nutritive value to plants, animals and micro-organisms, does not rot and is highly resistant to mildew, assisting in the reduction of building maintenance.
|Easy to use||ThermaRoof® insulation can be installed quickly and easily. It can be cut to shape with a knife or saw to ensure a tight custom fit, eliminating heat loss channels.|
