Description

Foamglas® is a high-quality thermal insulation material manufactured primarily from recycled glass (>60%) and natural raw materials.

Applications:

  • Warm roofing systems.
  • Green roofs, parking decks.
  • Roof decks.
  • Ventilated façades.
  • Indoor insulation.
  • Floor insulation in industrial environment.
  • Ground and perimeter insulation.

Benefits:

  • Waterproof, consisting of closed cell cellular glass. Does not absorb any moisture and does not swell.
  • Cannot rot and is pest-proof because it is inorganic.
  • High compressive strength even with long-term loads due to its cell geometry without deformation.
  • A1 non-combustible (to BS EN 13501), consisting of pure glass. In the event of fire, does not develop smoke or toxic gases.
  • Vapour-tight, consisting of hermetically sealed glass cells. Constant thermal insulation value over decades. Prevents the penetration of radon.
  • Dimensionally stable; neither shrinks nor swells. No warping, buckling or creep. Low coefficient of expansion, nearly equal to that of steel and concrete.
  • Resistant to organic solvents and acids because it consists of pure glass.
  • Free of environmentally damaging flame-retardants, protection agents, propellants and consists of over 60 % of high value recycling glass. Only regenerative electricity is used in the manufacturing process.
