PIC RIGID FOAM INSULATION 2017-09-21T08:50:18+00:00

PIC Rigid Foam Insulation

PIC 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.

Polyisocyanurate (PIC) comes in a range of densities from 32kg/m³ to 80kg/m³.

Polyisocyanurate (Polyiso) rigid foam insulation is designed to provide thermal resistance in residential and commercial building construction applications. For example, in exterior above grade wall assemblies, a layer of rigid insulation is often specified to comply with the prescriptive R-Value requirements outlined in energy codes and standards.

Highest R-Value per inch of any rigid foam board insulation.

Technical Data

  • Roof Insulation.
  • Under Roof Tile Insulation.
  • EPS panels can be fitted against the roof battens under the roof tiles for added thermal and acoustic insulation.
  • EPS panels can be fitted above the waterproofing membrane.
  • The CeilDeck Roof Insulation.
  • These systems are available in different thickness and sizes depending on the specification for insulation.
  • Cavity Fill.
  • Underground Floor Slabs.
  • Resistant to vibration.
  • Low mass.
  • Thermally efficient.
  • Recyclable.
  • CFC and HCFC free, physiologically and chemically harmless.
  • Resistant to aging, mildew, bacteria and rot.
  • Easily cut and worked (finetoothed saw and conventional hand tools).
  • Easily bonded.
  • Ensure adhesive is compatible with EPS.
  • Easily painted using high quality acrylic PVA applied by brush or spray.
  • Flame retardant EPS distinctly reduces the flammability and the spread of flame on the surface of foamed articles. This product is self-extinguishing as soon as the ignition source is removed Fire Retardant FR grade (Styrene unfaced) has obtained a B/B1/2/H&V with & without sprinklers when tested in accordance with SANS 428.
  • EPS is not known as a good sound absorbing product due to its closed cell structure and low density. Insulpro offers a range of alternative acoustical insulation products if required.
  • CFC free, recyclable, and does not decompose into harmful substances.
  • Polytec does not provide sustenance for rodents.
  • Densities of 15, 24 and 30 kg/m³.
  • Thermal conductivity at 10°C ranging from 0.033 to 0.038 W/m.K.
  • Hardness of 70, 110 and 200kPa.
  • Temperature limitations -110 to 70°C.
  • CFC and HCFC free, physiologically and chemically harmless.
  • Easily painted using high quality acrylic PVA applied by brush or spray.
  • It has excellent thermal conductivity and high compressive strength.
  • Exhibits very good dimensional stability between 140°C and -100°C and can therefore be recommended with confidence in this temperature range.
  • Highly chemical resistant, particularly to hydrocarbons and solvents.
  • Has a low density and easily and good adhesion to facings.
  • Available in 32, 40, 45, 60 and 80kg/m³.
  • 35kg/m³ – minimum density.
  • Core sample may exhibit variations of up to +10%.
  • Test to SABS 1383 of 1983 – Part 5.6.

A) Plain: For on-site finishing with sheetmetal, Insulpro hardsetting plaster, glass cloth etc.
B) Canvas Covered: For light duty indoor application. Painting ensures a neat, attractive appearance. The cold face temperature should not exceed 50°C.
C) Foil to Mylar: An indoor finish of layered aluminium Mylar Foil laminate for cold service where a vapour barrier is required. Supplied with finshing bands and an overlap for the adhesive. The cold face temperature should not exceed 50°C.

  • Oxygen Index ASTMD2863 28%-30%.
  • Butler Chimney ASTM 3014-73.
  • Weight Retention 90%.
  • Flame Spread BS 476 Part 7 Class One.
  • PIC35 is recommended for applications where good fire performance is required.
