INSUshield: Flooring insulation material
INSUshield with aluminium foil on both sides acts as an excellent radiant and effective vapour barrier and effectively stabilising indoor temperature.
Smart cities are not just about using sophisticated gadgets, WiFi and highly efficient mass rapid transport systems. A city cannot be considered as smart one unless and until buildings within it are highly energy efficient and environment-friendly.
In case of commercial and industrial structures floor insulation is considered essential in server rooms, data centres, medical and diagnostic centres and control rooms for petrochemicals and thermal power stations. In all these cases insulation becomes necessary to maintain the interior surface temperature of the bottom slab above the dew point, thus preventing condensation of the bottom slab surface. Vapour barriers are also needed to avoid interstitial condensation.
‘INSUshield’ is a non-fibrous, fire retardant, closed-cell, tridimensional chemically crosslinked polyethylene foam. Unlike mass/ fibrous insulation which absorbs heat and later releases the same into the premises, INSUshield with aluminium foil on both sides acts as an excellent radiant and effective vapour barrier and effectively stabilising indoor temperature.
Since it is closed-cell there will be negligible water/moisture absorption. It is certified ‘Class O’ in Fire Propagation and ‘Class 1’ in Surface Spread of Flame as per BS 476 Part 6 & Part 7, respectively. Thus, ‘INSUshield’ is an ideal environment friendly insulation material, with a perfect solution for all your insulation needs for ducts, roofs, pipes, vessels.
