Warmup Insulation Boards are manufactured from water-resistant extruded polystyrene, finished on both faces with a thin layer of fibreglass-reinforced cement. They are available in a range of thicknesses, from 6mm to 50mm, to individual project requirements.
They are ideal for tile backing applications on both walls and floors, with the internal layer of insulation capable of supporting 30 tonnes per square metre. The 0.5mm thick cement coating provides an excellent surface for tile adhesive, plaster and smoothing/levelling compounds, with no priming required.
The low thermal conductivity of the insulation enhances the efficiency of underfloor heating systems, even when used over pre-insulated sub floors. This is because they reduce the thermal mass of the floor, significantly reducing the amount of heat absorbed by the subfloor. This allows the underfloor heating system to warm the floor and the room up faster and ensures the floor cools down faster after use. By reducing the amount of time the room takes to warm up and cool down, the room can spend longer at its cooler set back temperature, reducing its heat loss.
The waterproof insulation panels are suitable for bathrooms and showers as well as dry rooms, allowing the same construction to be used throughout.
