FOAMGLAS® Insulation Product Overview Buildings are a major contributor to climate change. Annually, they consume 40% of the energy and 70% of the electricity in the U.S. and are responsible for 40% of the nation’s carbon dioxide emissions. This is a huge economic factor and cost consideration for owners of commercial buildings and private residences. Problems with water, moisture vapor and fire are also major concerns. Now is the right time to act and set sail for quality, longevity and safety. It is time for FOAMGLAS® insulation, the insulation of choice. Vaportight. FOAMGLAS® Products....

FOAMGLAS® Insulation minimizes thermal bridges. As an exterior insulation, FOAMGLAS® products have been proven in cavity walls, behind heavy or lightweight cladding (curtain walls with stone or metal cladding), in twin-skin metal walls. FOAMGLAS® insulation may be installed unprotected behind wire mesh or climbing plants. Cell structure is durable even when unprotected. The special benefit in facades with metal cladding is the possibility of a slim wall section, as no ventilation is required with waterproof and airtight FOAMGLAS® insulation. Moreover, there is no need for substrate anchors...

FOAMGLAS® Compact Roof and tapered insulation systems can be installed on a variety of roofs such as flat roofs, pitched roofs, special shaped roofs, metal roofs, vegetative roofs, water roofs and roof-top parking garages. FOAMGLAS® Compact Roof Technology means fully bonding all components and layers to one another using hot bitumen or cold adhesives to form a roofing system which prevents water migration. The substrate may be concrete, steel or a wood deck and the installation method eliminates thermal bridges. As an insulated surface, a wide...

Foundations designed economically. High compressive strength FOAMGLAS® slabs and boards can be used on parking decks, where they resist both dynamic and point loads. They have also been proven effective under or above structural concrete floors. High compressive strength – no deformation. FOAMGLAS® insulation is resistant to soil moisture conditions, micro-organisms, insects and rodents making it the ideal solution for all building elements that come into contact with the ground. FOAMGLAS® insulation is dimensionally stable and resistant to permanent loads. Raft foundations can even be...

Optimized Basements and Groundfloors. On underground walls, various FOAMGLAS® products can be used in combination with thick bed waterproof coatings or with direct torch-on membranes. FOAMGLAS® slabs laid externally on concrete walls and coated with bituminous mastic, forms a water impervious construction, preventing the migration of moisture through cracks in the concrete. In all underground applications, there is no moisture absorption with FOAMGLAS® insulation. The use of FOAMGLAS® PERINSUL® insulation blocks provides an energy-saving solution to eliminate thermal bridges at the base of...
