Kingspan Insulation has expanded its commercial product offering by introducing GreenGuard Type VII XPS Insulation Board for high load-bearing engineered applications requiring insulation with a minimum compressive strength of 60 PSI. Type VII XPS is primarily used in commercial roofing applications such as protected membrane (PMR) and pedestal paver systems.
The new GreenGuard Type VII XPS Insulation Board offers an R-value of 5.0 per inch of thickness and meets ASTM C578 Type VII requirements. The product retains its insulating properties over time, has high water resistance, and is HCFC free. In addition to commercial roofing applications, it is suitable for low-temperature freezer floors, cold storage facility floors, ice rinks, and parking decks. It is available in a square edge board or a drainage channel board.
“Kingspan continues to be committed to our customers and expanding our product offerings to the North American market,” said Ryan Sullivan, managing director, Kingspan Insulation North America. “Our recent investment into a new, state-of-the-art XPS insulation manufacturing line is allowing us to increase capacity and expand our GreenGuard XPS product portfolio to include insulation board with higher compressive strengths.”
Kingspan Insulation LLC, headquartered in Atlanta, GA, is a manufacturer in energy efficiency and moisture management products, offering high-performance insulation, building wraps, and pre-insulated HVAC ductwork.
