Division 7 Ebook Page 38 FOAMULARŪ 250 XPS Insulation Product Data Sheet

FOAMULAR XPS insulation has a maximum service temperature of 165F. Install only as much FOAMULAR XPS insulation as can be covered in the same day. For horizontal applications, always turn the print side down so the black print does not show to the sun which may at times act as a solar collector, raising the temperature of the foam under the print to an unacceptable level. Provide a final finish covering or temporary white opaque covering to avoid possible damage when dark (non-white) surfaces are used over FOAMULAR XPS insulation. Do not cover FOAMULAR XPS insulation either stored (factory wrapped or unwrapped), or partially installed, with dark colored (non-white), or clear (non-opaque) coverings and leave it exposed to the sun. Examples of such coverings include but are not limited to filter fabrics, membranes, temporary tarps, clear polyethylene, etc. If improperly covered, and exposed to the right combination of sun, time and temperature, FOAMULAR XPS insulation deformation damage may occur rapidly. See Owens Corning publication "Heat Build Up Due to Solar Exposure" (Pub. No. 10015704) for more information. This product is combustible. A protective barrier or thermal barrier is required to separate this product from interior living or conditioned spaces as specified in the appropriate building code. All construction should be evaluated for the necessity to provide vapor retarders. See current ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals. FOAMULAR 250 XPS insulation is great for below grade applications. FOAMULAR XPS insulation is resistant to degradation from the components of common soils and will retain its insulating performance characteristics even after prolonged exposure to moisture Provides a weather resistant barrier (when joints are sealed) to enhance the building's resistance to air and moisture penetration Technical Information FOAMULAR 250 XPS insulation is a non-structural material and must be installed on framing which is independently braced and structurally adequate to meet required construction and service loading conditions. FOAMULAR XPS 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.
