Polyisocyanurate is a closed cell rigid foam board insulation.

PIC can be supplied in sheet form and pipe sections.  PIC foams are fine cellular rigid foams.

PIC INSULATION

Fine cellular rigid foams are a type of insulation material made from a variety of polymers, including polyurethane, polystyrene, and polyisocyanurate. These foams are characterized by their small, fine cells that give them a uniform and smooth appearance. Here are some of the characteristics and applications of fine cellular rigid foams:

1.    Thermal insulation: Fine cellular rigid foams have excellent thermal insulation properties, making them a popular choice for insulating walls, roofs, and other building components. They can help to reduce energy costs and improve indoor comfort by reducing heat loss or gain.

2.    Lightweight: Fine cellular rigid foams are lightweight and easy to handle, which makes them ideal for use in a variety of construction applications.

3.    Strength and durability: Despite being lightweight, fine cellular rigid foams are also strong and durable. They can withstand compression, and some formulations are also resistant to moisture and fire.

4.    Versatility: Fine cellular rigid foams can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes, making them suitable for use in many different applications. They can be easily cut or molded to fit a specific shape or size requirement.

5.    Cost-effective: Fine cellular rigid foams are generally cost-effective compared to other types of insulation materials, making them a popular choice for builders and contractors.

6.    Environmentally friendly: Some formulations of fine cellular rigid foams are now being made with environmentally friendly materials, such as recycled content or bio-based materials.
Overall, fine cellular rigid foams are a versatile and effective insulation material that can be used in a variety of construction applications. They offer excellent thermal insulation properties, are lightweight, and are cost-effective. 

Product Benefits

Conforms to FM Approval standardss 4880 (1994), flammability characterization is recommended for applications where good fire performance is required.

Compatibility

It has been shown to be compatible with construction materials – such as petroleum-based solvents in adhesives, paints, water repellent and preservative coatings, and in bituminous waterproofing.  Not affected by oil based waterproofing compounds.
