Superior Insulating Properties

For maximum energy efficiency, EPS rigid foam insulation can be specified to achieve the desired thermal resistance and can significantly reduce air leakage that may occur in roof, wall and below grade assemblies. The amount of insulation required will vary depending on the building design, climate and energy costs, making it important to choose the most cost effective R-value per inch. EPS does not experience thermal drift, meaning its R-value remains constant throughout the life of the building.
EPS Roof Insulation is ideal for use in a variety of single-ply membrane systems and built-up roofs (BUR) used in new construction and reroofing applications. Direct to metal deck, EPS is cost-effective, durable and energy efficient. With the release of ICC-ES Evaluation Report ESR-2043, expanded polystyrene roof insulation can be applied directly over steel roof decks without the use of a code specified thermal barrier, resulting in reduced material and labor costs.
EPS can be cut and supplied in virtually any size or thickness to accommodate the roofing criteria. From R-Value requirements to flute filler sizes and thicknesses, versatility is the key to cost saving. Tapered EPS roof insulation systems are custom fabricated as required for each unique roof design. Designing an effective drainage system for every roof need not be made difficult by the limitations inherent in other roof insulation products.

Key Environmental Attributes

  • Since the 1950s, EPS has always been CFC and HCFC FREE
  • EPS Provides stable R-Value and does not need to be adjusted for age
  • EPS is recyclable and is recognized in green building
  • EPS mold resistance tests favorable in accordance with ASTM C1338
  • EPS does not adversely affect indoor air quality

EPS foam insulation can contribute toward green building recognition in a variety of point or credit categories including energy efficiency, recycled content, localized distribution, indoor air quality, sustainable sites and innovation. Several structural system applications, like insulating concrete forms(ICF’s) and Structural Insulation Panels (SIPS) that use EPS are commonly recognized by LEED and other green building guidelines as providing key environmental advantages.

Recycling EPS Roofing Insulation

Builders and contractors are being asked to recycle materials, rather than put it in landfills. However it can be difficult to find recyclers.
