Description

Description

Ravatherm XPS Insulation boards are made from extruded polystyrene and are renowned for their exceptional thermal performance, high compressive strength, and low water absorption, making them the preferred choice of specifiers for a wide range of demanding applications.

Underfloor Heating

Ravatherm XPS insulation boards are ideally suited to both water and electric matting underfloor heating systems (UFH) due to its high compressive strength and impressive thermal insulation properties. Waterproof, rot and mould resistant and lightweight, Ravatherm XPS is available in a range of thicknesses from 6mm upwards. It offers high levels of impact resistance.

In hot water based UFH systems, Ravatherm XPS can be CNC machined to accept water pipes. The density of Ravatherm XPS is such that high quality and consistent grooving is achieved to ensure a good fit for the water pipes.

For electric matting systems where there is an existing un-insulated floor slab, sheets can be readily cut and fitted by hand. Floor tiles can be laid using any water based tile adhesive. Wood laminates can be laid in direct contact.

About Ravatherm XPS

Ravatherm XPS is an extruded polystyrene. It was first developed and produced in the 1940’s by Dow Chemical Company in the USA. The process of extruding polystyrene results in a material with uniformly small, closed cells and an unrivalled set of properties which make it ideal for insulation and also as a core in lightweight structural panels. Ravatherm combines low thermal conductivity and low water absorption to make it the choice of specifiers in a wide range of demanding insulation applications.

Ravatherm also has excellent mechanical properties including high strength in compression, tension, bending and shear  which are essential for a  core material in structural panels used in a range of markets including coldstores, touring caravans, truck panels, building and curtain-walling. The small uniform cell structure of Ravatherm is also ideally suited for use in markets such as hobby and craft where traditional modelling tools can create three-dimensional models.

Please note: 

The Dow Styrofoam & XEnergy brand names have changed to Ravatherm XPS. This product is now manufactured by Ravago Building Solutions – Europe’s largest manufacturer of XPS insulation. The level of quality and availability has remained the same.
