USES 4.1 FOAMULAR Insulation Boards (ASTM C578 Types X, IV, VI, VII, V): FOAMULAR XPS insulation boards are extruded polystyrene foam plastic insulation used as nonstructural insulation on the exterior or interior of above grade walls, door cavities, in ceiling/floor assemblies, on the interior or exterior of below grade walls, below concrete slabs, around concrete slab edges, or as roof insulation. Insulation Boards may be used on the exterior of above grade walls when installed in accordance with Section 6.2. The insulation boards may be used as insulation under slabs-on-ground, slabs on decks, concrete pavers, and concrete pavers on pedestals when installation is in accordance with Section 6.8. In areas where the probability of termite infestation is defined a s "very heavy" the insulation must be installed in accordance with IBC Section 2603.9 or IRC Section R318.1, as applicable. The insulation boards may be used on walls in attics and crawl spaces without covering when installation is in accordance with Section 6.5 of this report. The insulation boards may be used on wall, ceiling and floor surfaces, detached garages, pole barns, telecommunication shelters, concrete modular buildings, agricultural buildings, buildings regulated under IBC Section 312 (Utility and Miscellaneous, Group U), or structures constructed in accordance with the IBC or IRC, when installed in accordance with Section 6.6 of this report. The insulation boards may be used as an alternative to the water-resistive barrier specified in IBC Section 1404.2 and IRC Section R703.2 when installation is in accordance with Section 6.7 of this report.
