Insulfoam has developed a composite insulation panel for new or retrofit roof systems requiring resistance to misuse, abuse and severe weather.
According to Insulfoam, their new HD Composite panel is a closed-cell, extremely lightweight and resilient EPS foam factory bonded to high-density polyisocyanurate cover board. The factory laminated composite insulation provides significant field labour savings, a cover board offering high compressive strength (100 psi), and high thermal efficiency that is not available with traditional foam insulation.
InsulFoam say the insulation is substantially less expensive than similar Iso composite products and makes an entire fully adhered single-ply roof system that is more resistant to abuse. They explain that it is widely compatible with a range of roofing membranes, including EPDM (M-class rubber), TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin), PVC (polyvinyl chloride), CSPE (chlorosulfonated polyethylene), and low-sloped, built-up and modified bitumen membrane systems, and it is also a suitable insulation underlayment for metal roofing.
The product has a full array of UL approvals, and is available in standard 4' x 8' panels, with thicknesses ranging from 1.5" to 7". Insulfoam also produces custom lengths and widths with little or no impact on lead time. "InsulFoam HD Composite insulation brings together the best features of two leading roof insulation materials for an extremely competitive price," said John Cambruzzi, Director of Marketing and National Accounts for Insulfoam. "The R-values of the EPS remain stable over time for exceptional long-term insulation, and the polyiso caps that off with additional insulation and a protective layer. The product is substantially more lightweight than gypsum and OSB for faster install, while standing up to abuse. It provides long-lasting, energy-efficient roof insulation in a range of harsh climates."
Sharp & Tappin has installed and commissioned a Compcut 200 composite plate saw at Renault Sport Racing in Enstone, Oxfordshire, UK.
Electric GT Holdings and SPV Racing recently unveiled the race-ready version of the EPCS V2.3 Tesla P100DL at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. The car features lightweight body parts made using Bcomp's ampliTex and powerRibs natural fibre composite reinforcement products, contributing to a 500 kg weight reduction over the road edition.
UK company Codem Composites has provided key bodywork components to support the F1 team Sahara Force India.
