Thermazone-XtraFall-FoilBoard

Thermazone Foilboard - Roof Insulation Boards

Thermazone® Foilboard Insulation is a high performance Polyisocyanurate flat roof insulation board suitable for use with mechanically fastened roof waterproofing membranes. It is suitable for use over all types of structural deck and must always be laid over a vapour control layer..

Thermazone Foilboard is available in flat or in XtraFall tapered variants.

Features & Benefits

  • Excellent thermal performance.
  • Dimensional stability.
  • High compressive strength.
  • Resistance to mould and microbial growth.
  • Resistant to most oils, greases and adhesives (except those containing ketones and esters).
  • Easy to handle, cut and install

Insulation Board Core & Facings

The Core: Thermazone Foilboard insulation board is manufactured from a high performance CFC/HCFC– free polyisocyanurate (PIR) based formulation with a typical density of 32 kg/m3.

Thermazone Foilboard insulation board is manufactured without the use of CFCs/HCFCs and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP).

Insulation Board Facings: Thermazone Foilboard insulation is faced on both sides with a low emissivity composite foil autohesively bonded to the insulation core during manufacture.

Typical Physical Characteristics
Density (Foam Core) 32kg/m3
Compressive Strength >150kPa @ 10% Compression
Water Vapour Resistivity >15 MN-s/gm
Thermal Conductivity 0.022 W/mK
Thermal Resistance Thermal resistance (R - value) varies with thickness and is calculated by dividing the thickness of the board (expressed in metres) by its thermal conductivity value

  

Insulation Board Attachment

Thermazone Foilboard must be mechanically fixed in accordance with the Icopal fixing calculation for the project.

Where tapered insulation installations are specified all boards must be laid in accordance with the XtraFall Insulation layout drawing.

During laying, water must not ingress under the insulation layer.

Day/night seals must be used during all interruptions to works.
Careful attention to roof details and setting out of laying pattern of XtraFall is required.

XtraFall tapered systems are designed to be installed by a competent contractor, who is experienced with this type of product.

Boards that have been damaged or allowed to get wet should not be used.

When Thermazone Foilboard is used over metal decks attention must be paid to the requirement of the insulation board to comply with the minimum thicknesses shown in the table below.

Trough Width (mm)  Minimum Board Thickness (mm)
< 75 25
76 - 100 30
101 - 125 35
126 - 150 40
151 - 175 45
176 - 200 50

 

Thermazone® XtraFall Taper System

A Thermazone® XtraFall Foilboard 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. 

Survey and Design Service

Icopal offer a free no obligation in-house design service for clients looking to specify an Icopal flat roof system incorporating XtraFall insulation.

Our area technical managers are trained to survey roof areas using the latest and most accurate equipment available, including digital inclinometers and laser levels.

Cut to falls designs are produced by our tapered insulation design team and can be tailored to the requirements of any project. U-Value calculations and condensation risk analysis calculations are available on request.

Insured guarantees are available for Icopal flat roof systems incorporating XtraFall tapered insulation. For further details on this please contact Icopal Technical Services.
