specific production Penoplex and its special properties

first extrusion plant appearedin America half a century ago.During the manufacture of polystyrene

beads are exposed to high pressure and temperature.The catalyst is a special agent for foaming.Typically, this mixture of carbon dioxide and freon lung.The resulting mass of lush, well-resembling whipped cream extruded from the extrusion plant outside.After some time the freon evaporates and its place in the cell enters the air.

Thanks manufactured extrusion material has a finely porous structure.Each of his identical tiny isolated cells.The size of these cells is from 0.1 to 0.2 mm, in the material they are arranged uniformly.This makes the material strong and warm.

Water absorption - the minimum

heat insulators for the ability to absorb moisture - an important characteristic.The following tests were conducted: Plate Penoplex a month left in the water, submerging it completely.Water is absorbed in a small amount of only the first 10 days, after which the material is stopped to pick up moisture.At the end of the amount of water in the plates does not exceed 0.6 per cent of the total volume.That is, the moisture can penetrate only into the outer insulation penoplex cells that have been damaged when cutting the material.But inside the closed cells is no water access.

Thermal conductivity -

small compared with many other heat insulators Penoplex thermal conductivity is much lower.Its value - 0.03 W * m * 0C.Since the material substantially does not absorb water, it is possible to use where high humidity.Moreover, its thermal conductivity is almost the same - it can range from only 0,001 to 0,003 m * BT * 0C.Therefore Penoplex boards can insulate both the roof from the attic and basements and cellars with floors without using additional water resistant layer.

Water vapor permeability - low

Like any polystyrene extrusion type Penoplex also has high resistance to moisture evaporation.A layer of this material plates of a thickness of 2 cm has the same water vapor permeability, as well as a layer of roofing material.

service life - long

Many times Penoplex freezing plates and then exposing them to thaw, the researchers found that all the characteristics of the material remain unchanged.According to the Institute of NIISF, these plates can serve as thermal insulation of houses 50 years, no less.And this time - is not the limit, it is given a large margin.This takes into account and atmospheric effects.

During compression - very resistant

As mentioned, extrusion allows to achieve uniformity of the material structure.Evenly distributed tiny cell size (a few tenths of a millimeter) to improve the strength characteristics of the insulation penoplex.It does not change its size even with large loads.

installation and handling - convenient and easy

This material is easily cut with a knife the most common.Penoplex plates can be quickly sheathe the walls without applying at the same time effortlessly.Working with this insulation does not need to be afraid that it will rain or snow.After Penoplex does not need protection from the weather.

Environmentally friendly - at a high level

Perhaps someone can scare that the production of this material are used CFCs.But the fact that this type of freon are safe - they are not, are not toxic and does not destroy the ozone layer.

Reactivity - almost zero

Most chemicals used in construction, are not capable of reacting with Penoplex.There are, of course, exceptions - of the organic solvents can soften the insulation boards, disrupt their shape or even completely dissolved.

Such substances include:

  • toluene, xylene, benzene and similar hydrocarbons (aromatic);
  • formaldehyde and formaldehyde;
  • substance from the class of ketones - methyl ethyl ketone, acetone;
  • esters, both simple and complex - methyl acetate and ethyl acetate solvents, diethyl ether;
  • gasoline, kerosene and diesel fuel;
  • polyesters used as an epoxy resin hardener;
  • coal tar;
  • oil-based paint.

give a list of substances that are not capable of damaging Penoplex:

  • Any kind of acid - organic and inorganic;
  • salt in solution;
  • alkali;
  • alcohols and paints based on them;
  • water and water-based paints;
  • bleach (bleaching powder) lime;
  • oxygen, carbon dioxide;
  • butane, propane, ammonia;
  • oil (both animal and vegetable), paraffins;
  • cement and concrete mortar;
  • freon.

is also worth noting that the biological stability of the insulation boards is also a high - they do not rot and decompose.

However, the immutability of shapes and sizes of plates Penoplex be kept Permissible ambient temperature at which it is possible to operate the heater.Typically, this option is specified in the passport of the material.Excessive heat not only the size but also the characteristics Penoplex may change, t. To. He not only can melt and ignite.But it is the lack of all foams, as you can see looking at the following video:

for insulating walls of houses used Penoplex Wall

Penoplex Wall

This title is a new - earlier thisinsulator called PENOPLEX 31 with flame retardants.However, the essence remains unchanged.Plinths, façades, walls, interior and exterior walls of buildings with this material to insulate very well.

Moreover, the inner side wall isolated only in the case when, for any reason, the outside make it impossible.Or if urgent repair is also convenient to sheathe the walls of insulation is inside.PENOPLEX STENA® is perfect for this purpose - it is very easy to install.

As for external use, it is very well-behaved showed the material in the well masonry walls.Compared to traditional brick walls are much thinner (several times), but in no way inferior to them either in terms of reliability, nor their ability to retain heat.

Penoplex Wall Insulation can be used in creating stucco facades.Since the decorative plaster, are sold everywhere shine with a variety of species and colors, will house original and unique.
