Polyfoam Roofboard Extra

Polyfoam Roofboard Extra and Slimline Zero Membrane

For inverted and green roofs

Thermal

The declared thermal conductivity of Polyfoam Roofboard Extra is 0.033W/mK.

The design thermal conductivity in including moisture correction factor, of the boards, is 0.034W/mK for thicknesses ≥ 100mm. For thicknesses under 100mm it is 0.035W/mK

Description

Polyfoam Roofboard Extra is a rigid extruded polystyrene (XPS) board with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than 5 and achieves a BRE Certified Green Guide rating of A+.

Polyfoam Roofboard Extra is a lightweight, lap jointed board with high compressive strength.

Polyfoam Slimline Zero Membrane is a high performance, thermally bonded tri-laminate of polypropylene; spunbonded (outer layers) and microporous (inner layer).

Benefits

  • Excellent thermal performance
  • 15mm lap joint
  • High compressive strength
  • Highly resistant to water absorption
  • Able to resist repeated freeze/thaw cycles
  • Lightweight and easy to install
  • Tough and durable, not easily damaged
  • Dimensionally stable
  • Thermal performance of an inverted roof is improved when used in conjunction with Polyfoam Slimline Zero Membrane

Application

Polyfoam Roofboard Extra is used for the thermal insulation of a wide variety of flat roofs including:

  • in an inverted roof below ballast or paving slabs
  • in a green/garden roof

Environmental

The Polyfoam XPS range of products has been independently assessed under the BRE’s Green Guide to Specification, Polyfoam Roofboard Extra achieves a Certified Green Guide rating of A+.

Polyfoam Roofboard Extra represents no known threat to the environment and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than five. Polyfoam Roofboard Extra is non bio-degradable and 100% recyclable.

Durability

The continuous service temperature limits of Polyfoam Roofboard Extra is up to +70º C.

Compressive strength

Polyfoam Roofboard Extra is highly resistant to compression and withstands both occasional and long term static loads. The high compressive strength and rigidity of the product allows a range of ballast material including gravel, soil and concrete slabs to be used as part of the construction. Load bearing construction elements should be designed to adequately support the combination of imposed and dead loads without creating excessive deflection.

Vapour resistivity

Polyfoam Roofboard Extra has a water vapour resistivity of 625MNs/g.m when tested in accordance with BS EN 12086.

Moisture absorption

Polyfoam Roofboard Extra has a moisture absorption of 0.6% by volume when tested in accordance with EN 12087.

Handling and storage

Polyfoam Roofboard Extra is lightweight and easy to handle and install. Polyfoam Roofboard Extra is supplied in four sided packaging designed to be easily recognised and is labelled with identifying product and manufacturing data. Ensure the product is not stored close to open flames or other ignition sources and avoid volatile organic compounds and chemicals such as solvents. Polyfoam Roofboard Extra should not be left exposed to prolonged sunlight as this will result in surface degradation. When outside storage for extended periods is required cover the products with opaque/light coloured sheeting.
