Division 7 Ebook Page 93 FOAMULARŪ Insulated Sheathing (IS) XPS Insulation Product Data Sheet

Product Data Sheet FOAMULAR Insulating Sheathing Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Rigid Foam Insulation Energy-Saving, Moisture- Resistant XPS Insulation Film-Faced Insulating Sheathing for Damage Control ASTM C578 Type X, 15 psi minimum Description Used as sheathing over all exterior walls in wood or metal framing construction, FOAMULAR Insulating Sheathing (IS) XPS Insulation creates an effective insulating envelope over the entire structure. FOAMULAR (IS) XPS Insulation is ideal for either wood or metal framing construction, and suits a variety of exterior finishes. These strong, lightweight, rigid foam panels with a film face provide the durability and damage resistance necessary to meet the rigorous demands of site built construction. It is highly resistant to moisture and retains its long term R-value, year after year- even after prolonged exposure to moisture and freeze/thaw cycling. Key Features Readily combines with blanket- type insulation for greater R-value Used in fire-rated exterior wall assemblies for application in office buildings, schools, shopping centers and more Tough film facers for added damage-resistance Excellent long-term stable insulating performance with an R-value 1 of R-3, R-4 or R-5 Exceptional moisture resistance, long-term durability Limited lifetime warranty 2 - maintains 90% of R-value and covers all ASTM C578 properties GREENGUARD Gold Certified The only XPS foam with certified recycled content- certified by SCS Global Services to contain a minimum 20% recycled content Will not corrode, rot or support mold growth Zero ozone depletion potential with 70% less global warming potential than our previous formula Reusable and remnants from manufacturing are recycled back into new XPS Foam Insulation Lightweight, durable rigid foam panels are easy to handle and install Easy to saw, cut or score 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 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 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.
