SOPREMA, Inc.® — a leader in the roofing, waterproofing, wall protection and civil engineering industries — has released its new SOPRA-XPS product line, a mix of extruded polystyrene thermal insulation panels, with applications in inverted roofing membrane assemblies (IRMA roofs), foundations, walls and civil engineering projects.
Thanks to its dense closed-cell composition, SOPRA-XPS has a consistent long-term R-value (LTTR) of 5 per inch, even at low temperatures, and offers one of the greatest compressive strengths in the insulation market, making it efficient, versatile and even more eco-friendly.
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 (VOC) 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 (GWP).
“In fact, the impact on the global warming potential is reduced by more than 95 percent,” said Tom Stuewe, SOPREMA product manager for liquid products and SOPRANATURE. “Thanks to SOPREMA’s exclusive and innovative process, the SOPRA-XPS line contains up to 70 percent recycled content, making SOPREMA the leading XPS insulation manufacturer in terms of recycled content.”
SOPREMA has manufactured the following products in the SOPRA-XPS line:
“Its resistance to water and moisture makes SOPRA-XPS an ideal choice in all applications, even in areas exposed to moisture,” Stuewe added. “Even when exposed to moisture, SOPRA-XPS is mold and bacteria resistant.”
