Division 7 Ebook Page 363 FOAMULAR® PINK-DRAIN’ XPS Insulation Product Data Sheet

Product Data Sheet FOAMULAR PINK-DRAIN Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Insulation Board PINK-DRAIN boards should be installed vertically with the channels away from the wall. The boards should be installed so as to extend vertically from the top of the footing to several inches below finished grade. Apply a horizontal bead of compatible sealant at the top of the board and press in place against the basement wall to prevent moisture drainage behind the board. Fasten the insulation to the foundation wall using concrete fasteners with (typical) 1" diameter corrosion-resistant washers. Fasteners should penetrate the foam and 1.5" into the concrete. Use minimum of two fasteners per board. Ensure the shiplap edges of the board are tightly butted to each other during installation and that the board is securely fastened to the foundation wall. Care should be taken during the backfill operation as to not allow soil penetration between PINK-DRAIN boards and the foundation wall. PINK-DRAIN boards should not be installed unprotected above grade. If FOAMULAR insulation is left exposed, it should be covered with an appropriate protective coating. Interior wall insulation methods may also be considered for areas above grade. PINK-DRAIN boards should be considered as a drainage enhancement mechanism. Owens Corning recommends the application of a waterproofing/ dampproofing membrane at the foundation wall in addition to PINK-DRAIN board. The installation of a properly designed footing drainage system is also recommended. Technical Information This product is combustible. A protective barrier or thermal barrier is required as specified in the appropriate building code. For additional information, consult MSDS or contact Owens Corning World Headquarters at 1-800-GET-PINK . All construction should be evaluated for the necessity to provide vapor retarders. See current ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals. FOAMULAR insulation can be exposed to the exterior during normal construction cycles. During that time some fading of color may begin due to UV exposure, and, if exposed for extended periods of time, some degradation or "dusting" of the polystyrene surface may begin. It is best if the product is covered within 60 days to minimize degradation. Once covered, the deterioration stops, and damage is limited to the thin top surface layers of cells. Cells below are generally unharmed and still useful insulation.

Properties shown are representative values for core 1" thick material, unless otherwise specified. 2. Modified as required to meet ASTM C 578 3. R means the resistance to heat flow; the higher the value, the greater the insulation power. This insulation must be installed properly to get the marked R-value. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully. If a manufacturer's fact sheet is not provided with the material shipment, request this and review it carefully. R-values vary depending on many factors including the mean temperature at which the test is conducted, and the age of the sample at the time of testing. Because rigid foam plastic insulation products are not all aged in accordance with the same standards, it is useful to publish comparison R-value data. The R-value for FOAMULAR XPS insulation is provided from testing at two mean temperatures, 40F and 75F, and from two aging (conditioning) techniques, 180 day real- time aged (as mandated by ASTM C 578) and a method of accelerated aging sometimes called "Long Term Thermal Resistance" (LTTR) per CAN/ULC S770-03. The R-value at 180 day real-time age and 75F mean temperature is commonly used to compare products and is the value printed on the product. 4. Values at yield or 10% deflection, whichever occurs first. 5. Per lineal foot of width. Tested at 1,200 psf, gradiant 0.19 per ASTM D4716. 6. Data ranges from 0.00 to value shown due to the level of precision of the test method. 7. Water vapor permeance decreases as thickness increases. 8. These laboratory tests are not intended to describe the hazards presented by this material under actual fire conditions. 9. Data from Underwriters Laboratories Inc. classified. See Classification Certificate U-197. 10. ASTM E 84 is thickness-dependent, therefore a range of values is given.
