Austech Building Products are a regular supplier of Foamular Extruded Polystyrene to commercial building projects throughout Australia.
Foamular Extruded Polystyrene is an alternative insulation offering, benefits include superior thermal properties and increased overall thermal value whilst maintaining construction efficiencies.
Austech's Foamular Extruded Polystyrene has recently been used in a $130 million dollar Westrac, CIA Precast, Abrigroup Builders and EJE Architecture project in Tomago, NSW.
“Once underway the process using Foamular Insulation and non conductive Reed pins was simple and efficient”, Steven Quick the Production Foreman of CIA Precast.
"The extruded polystyrene insulation is slotted between two concrete layers that are held together by non-conductive connector ties which reduce the energy-draining effects of thermal bridging.
The insulated sandwich panels have an enhanced thermal mass performance within the concrete, resulting in continous internal heat with minimal demand for energy use. The lower rates in energy use represent lower greenhouse gas emissions.
