Division 04 - Masonry for insulation installed in cavity walls and masonry cells. DEFINITIONS A. Extruded Polystyrene Insulation (XPS): Insulation formed from polystyrene resin pellets fed into an extruder where they are melted into a viscous fluid and mixed with critical additives including an injected blowing agent gas to make the mixture foamable. Under carefully controlled temperature and pressure conditions, the foamable polystyrene/admixture mass is forced through a die where it is foamed, expanded and shaped in a continuous process, soon cooling and then trimmed to form a rigid homogeneous, closed cell structure, board insulation. B. ICC-ES: International Code Council Evaluation Service. SUBMITTALS A. Product Data: Submit data on product characteristics, performance criteria, and limitations, including installation instructions. B. Sustainable Design: Submit manufacturer's sustainable design certifications as indicated. C. Source Limitations: Obtain exterior building insulation through one source from a single manufacturer. QUALITY ASSURANCE A. Source Limitations: Obtain exterior building insulation through one source from a single manufacturer. B. Each insulation board must be labeled with manufacturer's name, product brand name, ASTM material specification reference, and identification of the third party inspection agency used for building code qualification.
