Organicsynthetic insulants

Organic/synthetic insulants are confined to cellular structure: EPS (expanded polystyrene)

Rigid, flame retardant cellular, non-toxic, vapour resistant plastic insulation, CFC and HCFC free.

Lambda value 0.032-0.040 W/mK. XPS (extruded polystyrene)

Closed cell insulant water and vapour tight, free from CFCs and HCFCs. Lambda value 0.027-0.036 W/mK.

PIR (polyisocyanurate)

Cellular plastic foam, vapour tight, available CFC and HCFC free. Lambda value 0.025-0.028 W/mK.

Phenolic

Rigid cellular foam very low lambda value, vapour tight, good fire resistance, available CFC and HCFC free. Lambda value 0.018-0.019 W/mK.

In general, cellular materials do not pose a health risk and there are no special installation requirements.

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
