Division 22 23 Ebook Page 68 FOAMULAR XPS Pipe Insulation Product Data Sheet

PRODUCT DATA SHEET FOAMULAR XPS Pipe Insulation Extruded Polystyrene Fabrication Billets Description FOAMULAR Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Fabrication Billets are manufactured from rigid sheets of foam made using Owens Corning's Hydrovac process technology. The unique closed-cell structure of FOAMULAR XPS insulation makes it highly resistant to moisture, and thus low in water absorption but high in insulating capability. FOAMULAR XPS Fabrication Billets are factory laminated using a specially formulated polyurethane-based adhesive under strict process controls to ensure performance. The primary function of the FOAMULAR XPS Fabrication Billet product is to provide raw stock to commercial pipe fabricators from which individual pipe insulation parts can be cut. Features Compressive strength of 25 psi Exceptional thermal efficiency Long service life Reduced overall installation costs Manufactured in the U.S.A. Available in several sizes: Thickness: 8", 16", 20", 24" Width: 24", 48" Length: 37" to 120" Standard Stock: 24" x 48" x 74" Applications Pipe Insulation: Industrial (Non-plenum) Applications High Humidity and High Moisture Conditions Typical Industrial Uses Ammonia/liquid refrigeration lines Chilled water piping Cold storage systems Freezer rooms Pharmaceutical plants Refrigeration equipment Transport pipelines Direct burial applications Saddle supports in fiberglass pipe insulation systems Low temperature or cryogenic piping systems (limited to -320 F) containing: N itrogen Oxygen Argon Krypton Xenon NOTE: Temperatures below -297 F can result in oxygen rich environments. Special design considerations should be taken in these temperature ranges. Technical Information Owens Corning has developed an Installation Guide for Low Temperature Pipe Insulation to assist engineers, architects, and contractors with the proper installation of pipe insulation made from FOAMULAR XPS Fabrication Billets. This guide is available at www.owenscorning.com/ xpspipe. FOAMULAR XPS Fabrication Billets are available to Owens Corning Certified Fabricators.

Sample modified as required to meet applicable test method. 2. XPS foam core values meet ASTM C578 TYPE IV. 3. k means the apparent thermal conductivity. The lower the value, the greater the insulation power. 4. Values at yield or 10% deflection, whichever occurs first. 5. Data ranges from 0.00 to value shown due to the level of precision of the test method. 6. Water vapor permeance decreases as thickness increases. 7. These laboratory tests are not intended to describe the hazard presented by this material under actual fire conditions. 8. Fire performance of FOAMULAR 4" thick product only. Thicker products may have different fire performance characteristics. Due to limits on the equipment used to test per ASTM E84, Owens Corning FOAMULAR XPS Fabrication Billets have not been tested.
