KORE External Insulation


 
Technical | Installation Guidelines


 

KORE External is a high performance expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation board that is used in conjunction with a composite external thermal insulation system. KORE External consists of rigid boards cut from moulded blocks of EPS. These blocks of EPS are aged between four to six weeks to ensure the insulation is delivered to site to the exacting tolerances required for external insulation products.

KORE External Insulation is available in two grades of material, silver and white, and a range of thicknesses to suit your U-value requirements. Our KORE External Plinth board is also manufactured to a very high density, EPS200, made specifically to insulate the plinth below the damp proof course. EPS has very low water absorption properties, making it an ideal solution at the plinth level.

KORE External Insulation, along with a composite system, is fixed to the external face of external wall constructions. The system is compatible with cavity walls, solid block walls, hollow block walls and timber frame walls*. External insulation is suitable for use on both new and existing structures.
