R-Tech®:  An effective roof insulation panel helps reduce overall energy consumption, creates improved comfort for the building’s occupants and provides an excellent substrate for a new or retrofit roofing system. R-Tech closed cell panels pair extremely lightweight expanded polystyrene (EPS) with factory-laminated facers for good dimensional stability and compressive strength.  They offer remarkable physical properties, including excellent moisture resistance, long term non-degenerative thermal properties and extreme resilience. Insulfoam’s EPS is also environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable, containing no HCFC’s or formaldehyde and can contribute toward LEED® credit requirements.

Premier SIPs:  Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are a high-performance engineered wood framing product. SIPS are manufactured with a super-insulating core of rigid expanded polystyrene (EPS) that is structurally laminated and pressure cured between two sheets of oriented strand board (OSB). When using Premier SIPs for a building’s roof, walls and/or floors, the result is a highly efficient structural building system that is extremely strong, predictable, energy efficient and cost effective.

Insulfoam is North America’s largest EPS manufacturer. With more than 50 years manufacturing, testing and using EPS in projects throughout the world, Insulfoam shares tips, trends, projects and other engineered insulation details to help you design and build with the most cost effective rigid insulation on the market.
