FOAMULAR XPS ROOF INSULATION FOR COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS PAGE 5 FOAMULAR XPS ROOF INSULATION FOR COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS FOAMULAR XPS insulation is a rigid foam insulation which meets the needs of today's design professionals for a truly sustainable insulation product. Owens Corning insulation products help improve thermal performance and control moisture in commercial, institutional and high-rise residential buildings. Owens Corning FOAMULAR XPS insulation is a closed cell, moisture-resistant rigid foam board ideal for many roofing applications, including single-ply, protected roof membrane assemblies (PRMA), tapered, vegetative roofs, plaza decks, architectural metal roofing and recover roofing. FOAMULAR XPS is made with Owens Corning's patented Hydrovac process technology which makes it highly resistant to moisture and permits the product to retain its high R-value year after year even after exposure to moisture and freeze/thaw cycling. KEY FEATURES Exceptional moisture resistance, long-term durability Limited lifetime warranty covers all ASTM C578 properties with a 90% R-value retention. 1 The only XPS foam with certified recycled content-certified by SCS Global Services to contain a minimum 20% recycled content GREENGUARD Gold Certified Will not corrode, rot or support mold growth Zero ozone depletion potential with 70% less global warming potential than the previous formula Reusable Lightweight, durable rigid foam panels are easy to handle and install Easy to saw, cut or score WHAT MAKES FOAMULAR XPS INSULATION SUSTAINABLE? Sustainability has many definitions in the design community, but in short it's all about how the construction, use and maintenance of buildings can minimize the demand for resources over the long-term life of the building. FOAMULAR XPS insulation is a highly effective insulation. FOAMULAR roof insulation is highly resistant to moisture and mold. This resistance to moisture, combined with excellent compressive strength and dimensional stability, makes FOAMULAR roof insulation reusable. Building owners can be confident that in choosing FOAMULAR roof insulation, they will not need to replace the insulation when the roofing membrane needs updating. FOAMULAR roof insulation is made with a high percentage of pre- consumer recycled material. It is the only XPS insulation with certified recycled content, certified by Scientific Certification Systems. FOAMULAR roof insulation can help contribute to credits under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED ) program of the U.S. Green Building Council in the following categories: Energy and Atmosphere (various credits), Materials and Resources (Resource Re-use, Recycled Content, Local Regional Materials), and Innovation in Design.
