Austress Freyssinet, an international civil engineering company, has recently started a waterproofing division that will bring vast expertise to another construction field.

Awarded the waterproofing and insulation contract for the roof areas of the Prince Henry Hospital in Sydney the choice of insulation was a critical concern.

Sam Haidar, manager of the NSW Waterproofing Division chose Austech’s Foamular Extruded Polystyrene as the insulation for its innovative system.

Foamular Extruded Polystyrene is a closed cell Extruded Insulation board that has high insulation values that are maintained over the long term.

The added benefits of minimum moisture absorption and high compressive strength ensure Foamular Extruded Polystyrene will contribute to energy efficiency of the building while protecting the waterproofing membrane while minimising maintenance costs.

Freyssinet and Foamular Extruded Polystyrene from Austech are committed to supplying long term cost and energy efficient waterproofing and insulation systems that will meet industry demands well into the future.
