Rigid polyurethane foam
Rigid polyurethane foams are used wherever energy losses have to be prevented, thereby minimizing CO2 emissions. Consequently, the main spheres of application are in low- and high-temperature insulation.
Rigid polyurethane foam is a highly crosslinked, cellular, closed-cell, thermoset plastic of low density. The low thermal conductivity of the blowing agent contained in the cells is responsible for the material's excellent insulating properties. During foam production, the reaction mix enters a tacky phase prior to curing that enables it to form a strong, permanent bond with any facings.
Rigid polyurethane foam is a high-performance material for insulation and construction.
Energy efficiency with polyurethane
Energieeffizienz mit Polyurethan
A detached house loses most of its energy through the roof. Over 75 % of heat losses can be saved by insulating the roof with polyurethane.
Attic floor insulation
If the attic is not intended for use as living space in the foreseeable future, polyurethane insulation of the ceiling of the top story is a highly economical alternative to roof insulation.
Flat roof insulation
Extreme temperature fluctuations and the mechanical stress caused when flat roofs are walked on present no problems for high-performance polyurethane roof insulation with its high compressive strength.
External wall insulation
A lot of heat is lost through uninsulated walls. Polyurethane external wall insulation can save over 70 % of heat losses. External wall insulation often provides an opportunity to upgrade the façade.
Floor insulation; basement ceiling insulation
If the basement is unheated, it is advisable to insulate the ceiling. Alternatively, polyurethane floor insulation delivers optimum performance even with extremely thin boards, thereby saving space.
Internal wall insulation
Polyurethane insulating materials score heavily when it comes to internal wall insulation. They combine high insulation efficiency with very thin boards, thereby minimizing the interior living space lost.
