Certifications and Sustainable Features of FOAMULAR XPS Insulation FOAMULAR XPS Insulation is reusable FOAMULAR XPS Insulation is made with a zero ozone depletion formula Certified by SCS Global Services to contain a minimum of 20% recycled content Certified to meet indoor air quality standards under the stringent GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification Program, and the GREENGUARD Gold Certification Utilizing FOAMULAR XPS Insulation can help achieve green building certifications including the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED ) certification Architectural Notes Assemblies should be evaluated for effectiveness and location of vapor retarders to avoid condensation and subsequent damage to the structure (see current ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals) THERMAPINK Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Rigid Foam Insulation is recommended for use over concrete or over steel decks. Please consult UL Roof Deck Construction #457, tested in accordance with UL Standard 1256, for specific details about using THERMAPINK insulation over steel decks without a thermal barrier. Note that barrier boards or cover boards may still be needed when designing hourly fire resistance or class A, B or C rated roofing systems. Please consult applicable UL listing. Thermal barriers are not required over concrete or wood decks THERMAPINK products are also recommended for use over steel decks when an approved thermal barrier is used between the steel deck and the insulation as in FM Class I roof deck assemblies Some roof membranes, such as PVC, require a slip sheet, such as a glass fiber mat or barrier board, over the insulation A mechanically attached or fully adhered overlayment of gypsum board, wood fiber or perlite board is required over THERMAPINK roof insulation for BUR and torch- applied modified bitumen. When adhering or exposing THERMAPINK Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Rigid Foam Insulation to hot bitumen, the bitumen must be allowed to cool to 225-250F When a dark colored mechanically attached membrane is used, without ballast, or, when a membrane is fully adhered using solvent based adhesives, FOAMULAR XPS Insulation must be overlaid with a suitable cover board, such as wood fiber, gypsum or perlite For roofing and other horizontal applications, product should be installed with the printed surface facing downward Important -Apply only as much FOAMULAR XPS Insulation as can be covered by the finished roofing surface (overlayment, roof membrane and/or ballast) in the same day of installation to prevent its discoloration, wind displacement and possible damage from heat build-up by excessive sun exposure For ballasted roofing systems (including PRMA 4 ) with no cover board over the XPS, black/dark (non-white) roofing membranes (or filtration fabrics in PRMA) over FOAMULAR XPS Insulation must be ballasted IMMEDIATELY after placement to prevent potential heat damage from sun exposure and wind displacement of the insulation under the membrane/fabric For mechanically attached and fully adhered roofing systems, in areas where black/ dark membranes are used and where "reflected solar energy" is expected to be present, FOAMULAR XPS Insulation needs protection in addition to normally specified cover boards. Roof areas adjacent to higher walls or other structures with reflective cladding should be considered for additional heat protection. For example, metal or glass cladding; or near, or in between, large groupings of mechanical equipment; or near higher reflective parapets, should be considered for additional heat protection. Additional heat protection for such roof areas include covering with pavers or ballast, or, in lieu of paver or ballast protection, black/dark (non-white) 4 PRMA-Protected Roof Membrane Assembly.
