Owens Corning, a leading manufacturer of insulating system, offers combined performance benefits with its Foamula - Metric brand Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Foam Insulation Boards.
Foamular - Metric is a polystyrene foam extruded into rigid boards by Owens Corning's Proprietary technology known as Hydrovac process, which develops continuous skin surfaces and uniform closed-cell cores.
The cells have interconnecting walls of consistent thickness with no voids. This uniform structure gives Foamula - Metric Extruded Polystyrene high insulating values, good moisture resistance and high compressive strength.
Foamular - Metric Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Foam Insulation is available from Austech External Building Products and for wide-ranging applications including Cold storage applications, PRMA (Protected Roof Membrane Assemblies), exterior wall of buildings and civil construction applications.
When applied to cold storage buildings, Foamular - Metric Extruded Polystyrene maintains low thermal conductivity in the presence of high water vapor driving forces, and even after prolonged exposure to moisture and freezing conditions.
Foamular - Metric Extruded Polystyrene has proven success in providing effective thermal insulation for cold storage application in America and Europe as well as in Asia Pacific.
Foamular - Metric Extruded Polystyrene insulation boards have been adopted for use in cold storage facilities and systems of Coca Cola Plant in Shanghai, Cathay Pacific Catering Services at the Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok Airport, Nestle Ice-cream factory in Guangzhou and Chong Wah Qiao Tai Low temperature Distribution Centre in Taiwan.
Cold Storage applications create a hostile environment to which an insulation can be exposed due to large temperature differentials and associated severe water vapor pressures.
