High-performance, multi-purpose polystyrene foam for the thermal insulation and frost protection of inverted flat roofs, cellar perimeter walls and floors with normal load.
The WALLMATE™ SL-XP thermal insulation is manufactured by extrusion production procedure, which results in homogeneous, closed-cell material structure, smooth surface crust (called extrusion crust) and many favourable material characteristics.
The blue-colour STYROFOAM™ XPS extruded polystyrene foam thermal insulation can be used in a wide range of applications as a result of the following beneficial properties thanks to the homogeneous, closed-cell material structure:
• permanently high thermal insulation level
• negligible moisture uptake
• high strength and rigidity
• dimensional stability
• resistance to rot and deterioration
• simple and quick installation with only a small amount of waste.
WALLMATE™ SL-XP is excellent for thermal insulation and for the protection of insulation in the wall structures.
The WALLMATE™ SL-XP thermal insulation is manufactured by extrusion production procedure, the result of which is a homogeneous, closed-cell material structure, a smooth-surface crust (called extrusion crust) and numerous favourable material properties:
• permanently high thermal insulation performance
• water and frost resistance,
• high compressive strength,
• high flexible rigidity,
• high vapor diffusion resistance,
which make the product suitable for fully meeting all the demands of the numerous application areas listed.
The permanent application temperature of STYROFOAM™ XPS products is max. 75°C.
At higher temperatures, the plates will melt and suffer permanent deformation.
STYROFOAM™ XPS products contain an – ecologically safe – flame-retardant additive, as a result of which they will be self-extinguishing under their ignition temperature, however, they will burn if exposed to an intensive ignition source.
STYROFOAM™ XPS products are resistant to commonly used construction materials not containing solvents or softeners (bituminous components without solvents, water-based wall protecting materials, lime, cement, masonry mortars and plasters, anhydrous gypsum etc.).
Certain organic materials, such as solvent-based wood preservatives, paint additives, solvents (acetone, ethyl acetate, kerosene, gasoline etc.) will cause softening, shrinking and damage to the material.
For gluing, solvent-free adhesives must be used. Follow the supplier’s guidance.
XPS products must not be exposed to permanent intensive direct sunlight.
