XPS Insulation Applications
Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) is an extraordinary product and it has be well-established and recognized reputation for its long-term reliability and superior properties. These properties include:
1. Excellent thermal insulation properties
2. High compressive strength
3. Closed cell structure minimizing water absorption
4. Excellent dimensional stability
5. Exceptional resistance to water and freeze thaw cycles
These exceptional properties above make extruded polystyrene (XPS) ideal panels for insulating a wide range of applications in buildings, such as:
Beneath Base Slabs
Above Base Slabs
Below-Ground Basement Perimeters
Pitched Roofs (Above Rafters)
Pitched Roofs (Below Rafters)
Roof Top Parks
Swimming Pool Outer/Under Perimeters
Hydronic Floor Heating
External Wall Cladding
Inside Stud/ Cavity Walls
Outer Perimeters of Buildings
Below Sport Surfaces
Industrial/Warehouse Floors & Walls under Roofs
Residential applications include:
- Insulation for exterior walls (ETICS)
- Cavity wall insulation
- Roof insulation (Flat/Inverted & Pitched)
- Floor Insulation
1. Interior and Exterior Walls
2. Foundations and Slabs
3. All Kinds of Roofs
- More compressive strength selection for different applications
- Excellent long-term thermal performance
- Moisture resistance
- Thermal bridge breaker
- Light weight, easy to install
The cold processing industry is a high energy consumption industry, and the energy consumption of the cold storage enclosure structure accounts for about 30% of the entire cold storage. In some low temperature cold storage enclosures, the cooling capacity is as high as 50% of the total refrigeration equipment load. It can be seen that the selection of insulation material for the envelope structure is related to the energy consumption of the entire cold storage.
Under normal circumstances, in the design and construction of cold storage, designers and owners often only consider the comparison and optimization of the initial performance of thermal insulation materials, while relatively neglecting the long-term thermal insulation performance of thermal insulation materials and the production process of thermal insulation panels.
♦ Refrigerated truck, van bodies
♦ Motor-homes & caravans
♦ Airport hi-lift van bodies
♦ Special-purpose vehicles
Cold chain transport is a temperature-sensitive industry, so the strictest factors should be considered when refrigerated trucks are produced. These factors include:
Lower thermal conductivity
The smaller the thermal conductivity is, the better the insulation performance is. Refrigerated trucks are designed to transport food, and other temperature-sensitive merchandise, so they must be insulated effectively.
Our Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Special for Refrigerated Trucks has lower thermal conductivity 0.026W/(M.K) at 23℃, it is excellent core materials in low temperature condition.
High mechanical strength
When loading and uploading merchandise to or from refrigerated trucks, high mechanical forces shall be formed. As core material, extruded polystyrene has to withstand enough forces to protect these panels from being damaged.
Our Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Special for Refrigerated Trucks guarantees the compressive strength 350-600kPa at a low density. Such high strength is capable to withstand heavy cargo loads as well as dynamic loads.
Low moisture absorption
Moisture is bad for thermal insulation performance. Since its 100% closed-cell structure, extruded polystyrene has much lower moisture absorption rate, and can also withstand water ingress, to ensure durability and optimum quality.
Our Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Special for Refrigerated Trucks is a thermal insulation material insensitive to moisture, which is characterized by its high resistance to water vapor diffusion. This is one of the reasons why it is preferred product for maintaining long-term insulation properties.
As a kind of new thermal insulation material for refrigerated truck, extruded polystyrene foam is more lighter by weight, definitely fuel costs get down.
Our Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Special for Refrigerated Trucks has the lowest density 33kg/m3, and its other properties can be guaranteed at same time.
