POLYFOAM Floorboard Standard is highly resistant to compression and withstand both occasional and long term static loads. Load bearing construction elements should be designed to adequately support the combination of imposed and dead loads without creating excessive deflection.
The thermal conductivity of POLYFOAM Floorboard Standard is 0.033 W/mK
POLYFOAM Floorboard Standard is rigid extruded polystyrene (XPS) board with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than 5 and Zero Ozone Depletion Potential. It is square edged boards that has high compressive strength.
- High compressive strength – protects the damp proof membrane from damage
- Highly resistant to water absorption
- Robust and can tolerate traffic from following trades
POLYFOAM Floorboard Standard is suitable for almost any floor construction including:
- Below a screed
- Below chipboard

POLYFOAM Floorboard Standard
POLYFOAM Floorboard Standard is resistant to moisture absorption and can be laid in standing water or up against wet concrete with negligible impact on the performance of the product as determined by testing to EN 12087.
Handling and storage
POLYFOAM Floorboard Standard is lightweight and easy to handle and install. POLYFOAM Floorboard Standard is supplied in four sided packaging designed to be easily recognised and are labelled with identifying product and manufacturing data. Ensure the boards are not stored close to open flames or other ignition sources and avoid volatile organic compounds and chemicals such as solvents. POLYFOAMFloorboard Standard should not be left exposed to prolonged sunlight as this will result in surface degradation. When outside storage for extended periods is required cover the products with opaque/light coloured sheeting.
