There are significant changes underway in the supply of Styrofoam the market leading extruded polystyrene. During 2018 Dow Chemical will cease the manufacture of blue Styrofoam and replace with a new improved product called Xenergy Styrofoam. This product will be grey in colour and offer the same mechanical properties but will provide improved thermal performance. The process of winding down stocks of blue Styrofoam is already underway with some grades already exhausted such as RTM, these will be supplied in the new improved grade of Xenergy. Other grades will be phased in over coming months. Full technical data sheets on the new improved product are available to download here and here.
Styroliner® is an insulated dry lining board that is used to create warmer rooms and reduce energy consumption. Styroliner is constructed from Styrofoam extruded polystyrene (EPS), which is faced with plasterboard. It provides a simple and cost effective solution to insulating walls and is suitable for both refurbishments and new build applications.
- Low thermal conductivity
- High resistance to moisture
- Long term effective insulation
- Class ‘O’ to Building Regulations
- Eco grade foam available with ODP of zero and GWP of one
Easy to fit insulated wall board
Styroliner provides a simple and cost-effective solution to insulating walls. lt is suitable for refurbishment and new build applications. Styroliner comprises plasterboard bonded to a backing of Styrofoam to provide an effective, energy saving wall insulation board
The styrofoam insulation backing is a blue extruded polystyrene which combines low thermal conductivity and a high resistance to moisture to ensure permanent long-term insulation. Styrofoam is CFC and HCFC free and has an Ozone depletion potential (ODP) of zero.
Styroliner boards are supplied in a standard sheet size of 2400 x 1200mm and are available in 5 overall thicknesses: 27, 35, 40, 48, 60 & 85mm.
Panel Systems Ltd has been manufacturing thermal laminates in Sheffield for over 35 years. We pride ourselves on our high level of quality & service and all our products are manufactured to British Standard BS EN 9001:2000.
- Styroliner is CFC + HCFC free and has zero ozone depletion potential
- The Plasterboard face has a class 1 surface spread of flame to BS476:Part 7:1987
