A New Generation of Roof Insulation

Ravatherm XPS X is a new generation of extruded polystyrene from Ravago – Europe’s largest XPS manufacturer – used to insulate roofs.

  • Combines the proven features of Ravatherm XPS X – durability, reliability and strength – with improved insulation performance and an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of zero and Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than five
  • Achieved by combining a manufacturing process which uses CO2 as the blowing agent and adding infra-red blocking particles to scatter and reflect heat radiation within the foam board.

Ravatherm XPS X 300 SL (formerly Roofmate / XENERGY™ SL) offers 4mW thermal conductivity gains in 140mm, 160mm, 180mm and 200mm thicknesses, and an 11% improved insulation performance compared with ROOFMATE™ SL-A. This protects the waterproof membrane from excessive temperature changes and weathering. Manufactured by Ravago Building Solutions, it is extruded in the UK and is a distinctive dark grey colour.

Ravatherm XPS X 300 SL is extruded using recycled CO2 and is available in two types:

  • Ravatherm XPS X 300 SL – Insulation for ballasted inverted roofs
  • Ravatherm Min-K – Membrane to be used with roof insulation to minimise heat loss due to rainwater cooling.

Applications

Ravatherm XPS X 300 SL, distributed by Panel Systems, is an extruded polystyrene designed to insulate roofs. With flat roof constructions, Ravatherm XPS X 300 SL is designed to be installed above the waterproof layer as an inverted roof construction. Ravatherm XPS X boards provide a firm base, allowing the installation of a ballast layer or an inverted green roof.
