HIGH PERFORMANCE XPS INSULATION
WATER & MOISTURE RESISTANT
HIGH THERMAL PERFORMANCE
Why KORE XPS?
Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) is a high performance insulation material that offers a high compressive strength while being resilient to water penetration. XPS boards have a closed cell structure. The raw polystyrene granules are extruded using carbon dioxide as a blowing agent.
XPS boards are manufactured in moulds to specific dimensions, thicknesses and shape. The raw material is injected into the mould and extruded, with the materials fed into the extruding machine where they are blended and melted into a thick liquid. The liquid is processed through a dye, expanded into foam, shape, cooled and trimmed to size. XPS foam is not cut into block boards, which helps keep the product water, moisture and freeze resistant.
XPS is the perfect material for a range of roof applications, including warm and inverted flat roofs, green roofs, car parks and terraces. It is also a suitable material for use on pitched roofs between the rafters and at ceiling level.
GROUND FLOOR & BASEMENTS
XPS is ideal for areas prone to water, moisture and frost, including basement walls and floors, ground floors and foundations. The high compressive strength and stability of XPS can easily support heavy loads without deformation of the insulation boards.
CIVIL ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS
XPS can be used for a range of civil engineering applications, including void formers for embankments, replacing substrates with low load capacity and floating elements.
INDUSTRIAL & AGRICULTURAL APPLICATIONS
XPS is the perfect insulation material for industrial and agricultural applications, including cold stores, warehouses and silos. Other uses include halls, swimming pools, skating rinks and other sports and leisure centres.
Features & Benefits of KORE XPS
High Thermal Performance
KORE XPS achieve thermal conductivity between 0.033 to 0.038W/mK. The thermal conductivity of XPS depends on the board’s thickness and compressive strength. KORE XPS can be supplied to meet the thermal and U-value requirements of each individual project.
Superior Compressive Strength
KORE XPS offers a very high compressive strength that can accommodate heavy loads found in industrial applications, commercial applications and civil engineering applications. We are currently able to supply XPS300. Higher compressive strength XPS500 and XPS700 may be available upon request. Please speak with our technical or sales team for more information.
Waterproof & Moisture Resistant
KORE XPS have a full closed cell structure. This ensures high waterproof properties and allows XPS to be used in places with direct contact to moisture like ground floor insulation, basement walls, inverted roofs, car parks and terraces.
KORE XPS boards are easy to handle and install. XPS is extremely lightweight and are available with different edge types, including straight or lapped. KORE XPS requires no specialised equipment or PPE to handle and install.
