Dow Building Solutions has enhanced its extruded polystyrene (XPS) roofing insulation brand XENERGY™, with the launch of a new product specifically designed for use on parapets and upstands.
XENERGY™ LG board is 60mm thick and comprises of a 50mm thick XENERGY™ extruded polystyrene layer with a declared lambda value of 0.030 W/mK, and a 10 mm thick grey coloured mortar topping that has already been applied to the boards.
XENERGY™ LG boards lock together to provide a continuous insulation layer. They are light enough for one person to handle and can be easily cut and shaped on site with a mortar saw – XENERGY™ LG can help minimise installation costs.
XENERGY™ LG, which will replace ROOFMATE™ LG-X and ROOFMATE™ LG-A, can be easily fixed by using a suitable adhesive.
XENERGY™ products benefit from a manufacturing process which uses CO2 as the blowing agent and adds infra-red blocking particles to scatter and reflect heat radiation within the foam board.
XENERGY™ products help decrease lambda values by up to 11% and deliver a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than five.
Joan Ferrer, Technical Services at Dow Building Solutions, said: “The launch of XENERGY™ LG enables Dow to provide the complete XENERGY™ package for inverted roofs, including parapets and upstands.
“This really is great news for architects and specifiers because thanks to their superior insulation qualities, XENERGY™ products provide excellent protection and improve Lambda values across an entire roof.”
