SOPREMA, Inc.®, has released its new SOPRA-XPS product line, a mix of extruded polystyrene thermal insulation panels, with applications in inverted roofing membrane assemblies, foundations, walls, and civil engineering projects. Thanks to its dense closed-cell composition, SOPRA-XPS has a consistent long-term R-value of five per inch, even at low temperatures.
The line has even earned the coveted GREENGUARD Gold certification, which incorporates stringent selection criteria and the most demanding safety factors for volatile organic compound emissions. GREENGUARD Gold-certified insulation is part of the solution for improving indoor air quality. It ensures that a product is acceptable in high-risk environments, such as schools and healthcare facilities. The SOPRA-XPS product line is also produced without HFC-134a gas as a blowing agent, meaning it will have no effect on the ozone depletion potential and a much lower global warming potential.
SOPREMA has manufactured the following products in the SOPRA-XPS line: SOPRA-XPS 20 is designed to insulate above-grade exterior walls and residential applications on exterior foundation walls and under foundation slabs; SOPRA-XPS 25 CW is ideal for the insulation of cavity walls, and it fits perfectly between wall ties because of its convenient sizes and thicknesses; SOPRA-XPS 30 is designed for the insulation of exterior foundation walls and under foundation slabs; SOPRA-XPS 35 is ideal for the insulation of new or refurbished inverted roofs to improve their thermal resistance; and SOPRA-XPS 40, 60, and 100 are designed for heavy load applications requiring high-density insulation. These include inverted roofs, such as green roofs and roof terraces, and certain applications under foundation slabs that support dead or live heavy loads.
SOPREMA offers a comprehensive line of roofing, waterproofing, wall protection, and civil engineering solutions, combining superior products and systems with decades of proven performance. These solutions include SBS-modified bitumen membranes, polymeric PMMA/PMA liquid-applied membranes, and synthetic single-ply PVC membranes.
