What is R-Value?
An R-Value is a rating which measures how well insulation can resist heat flow. ‘R’ stands for thermal resistance.
- R-Value level depends on a number of things such as the type
of material, its density and thickness.
- Higher R-Value = Better insulation.
What is the difference between EXPO ThermaSlab and EXPOL Platinum Board?
EXPOL ThermaSlab is a cost effective way to insulate a building and meet Building Code requirements. EXPOL Platinum Board is a premium product with superior R-value.
Does ThermaSlab SL come in a range of different sizes?
Yes. EXPOL ThermaSlab SL is available in any width. Sheets of 355mm or 555mm at a length of 1200mm are most common. It is also available in custom sizes upon request.
How strong is EXPOL ThermaSlab?
The unique matrix structure of expanded polystyrene (EPS) creates block rigidity making it an excellent choice for retaining walls as it will not sag or slump over time.
Can I use the ThermaSlab H Grade under the footing ?
No if you want to insulate under the footing you will need to use Expol XPS 50mm.
Can I insulate the edges of the footings?
Yes you will need to use XPS 30mm, 40mm or 50mm for the the sides and under the footings.
Does the ThermaSlab go under the polythene?
No the Thermaslab must be laid on top of the polythene.
Is EXPOL ThermaSlab water resistand?
The closed cell construction of expanded polystyrene (EPS) ensures it resists any adverse effects of water
What sizes does EXPOL ThermaSlab come in?
EXPOL ThermaSlab comes in lengths of 2400mm, 2450mm, 2700mm, 3600mm and 4800mm in various thicknesses. Custom sizes are available upon request.
Does EXPOL ThermaSlab help with drainage?
No. EXPOL ThermaSlab is not a drainage material. Use EXPOL StyroDrain for a lightweight solution for retaining wall drainage.
