When insulating masonry walls the insulation should be cut accurately to create a neat fit between the timber batons or strapping. It is also important to make sure that the insulation is maximized by using the correct thickness; this is determined by the thickness of the timber batons or strapping. The panels can be spot glued in place until the lining materials are fixed.

Care should be taken to ensure that there is no contact between the polystyrene and any electrical wiring.

System Components

EXPOL Wireguard

EXPOL WireGuard

EXPOL WireGuard is a waxed paper strip used to separate exposed electrical cables from EXPOL insulation. Expanded Polystyrene in some cases reacts with the plasticiser and degrades the elastic properties of some electrical cables over a prolonged period.

Sabre Fix Construction Adhesive

Sabre Fix is an advanced single component polyurethane-based construction adhesive. This powerful adhesive is developed especially for the construction industry and will bond most types of construction materials including timber (damp and dry), concrete, plasterboard, polystyrene and many other porous and non-porous substrates.
