Application

Thermazone® Torch-On Insulation is suitable for use with Icopal Profiles and Total Torch waterproofing systems, and other traditional partial bond torch-on systems. It is suitable for useover all types of structural deck and must always be laid over a vapour control layer.

Adhesives containing such solvents should not be used in association with this product.

Description

Torch-on polyisocyanurate (PIR) based roof insulation.

Facings: Thermazone® Torch-On Insulation is faced on the underside with a mineralised glass tissue auto-adhesively bonded to the insulation core during manufacture. The top surface is finished with a bitumen-coated glass tissue finished with a thermofusible polypropylene fleece.

Core: Thermazone® Torch-On Insulation is manufactured from a high-performance CFC/HCFC free polyisocyanurate (PIR) based formulation with a typical density of 32 kg/m³. Thermazone®Torch-On Insulation is manufactured without the use of CFCs/ HCFCs and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and a low Global Warming Potential (GWP).

Thermazone® XtraFall Taper System:

  • A Thermazone® XtraFall Torch-On System provides the designer and contractor with a precise, technically excellent solution to providing thermal insulation and bespoke drainage on a flat roof.
  • A Thermazone® XtraFall Taper System comprises factory laminated boards and factory cut hip and valley pieces which allow for the creation of mitres without on-site cutting thereby reducing installation times, cutting errors and the associated labour and waste costs. Each component is clearly identified by board type and the direction of fall.

Features and benefits:

  • Compressive strength: Typically, the compressive strength of Thermazone® PIR insulation exceeds 150 kPa at 10% compression and 125 kPa at 5 % when tested to ‘BS EN 826:1996.
  • Water vapour resistance: Modified to include board facings, the board achieves a resistance greater than 15 MN·s/g when tested in accordance with ‘BS 4370-2:1993 (Methods of test for rigid cellular materials. Methods 7 to 9)’. Thermazone Torch-on Board must be laid over a vapour control layer.
  • Durability: When correctly applied Thermazone® insulation has an indefinite life. Its durability depends on the supporting structure and the conditions of its use.
  • Resistance to solvents, mould and vermin: The insulation core is resistant to short term contact with petrol and with most dilute acids, alkalis and mineral oils. The insulation core is not resistant to some solvents, e.g. ketonic solvents; such as methylethylketone (MEK).
  • CE marked (EN 13165, 13, 1486).
