Where can I use Kingspan?

It can be very difficult to decide what brand of insulation to choose among all available in the market. Out of all the insulation materials available on the market, Kingspan insulation is among those brands which have been tested and have great results in home insulation. To help you decide where is best to use Kingspan, we have listed the materials which will best suit various locations in your house.

Kingspan Kooltherm

Kingspan Kooltherm has a high tolerance, unmatchable performance, and a range of very durable phenolic insulation materials. Out of all the products available in the market, Kooltherm sheets have been providing the lowest possible ‘thermal transmittance’. Also, it is very resistant to water vapour. It absorbs moisture as low as 2%. It is strong with compressive strength of around 175kpa.

Internal walls

Internal walls need to be insulated very efficiently because there are a number of factors that can lead to heat loss which further leads to problems such as dampness. Kingspan is insulated plasterboard that is used for internal wall insulation. It has plasterboard on its front surface and a glass tissue polyiso on the reverse surface. Thermal conductivity is ranged from 0.020-0.19 W/m.K. they are highly resistible.

External walls

While we keep ourselves busy with internal insulation, it is also very important to keep in mind external wall insulation. Kooltherm k5 board is designed solely for external wall insulation, especially with brick walls and cladding systems that are dry. It has a thermal conductivity range from 0.020-0.023 W/m.K. It has a glass tissue texture. For use as external wall insulation, the K5 offers a very flexible application process and is readily available.

Roof insulation

The roofs of our homes and other buildings tend to lose heat. If not insulated properly, it might also begin condensation build-up as it is exposed to rain and moisture. This will not only harm your building but will also affect your health adversely. Kooltherm k7 boards are used for roof insulation and are used under slates or tiles. With a thermal conductivity range of 0.020-0.023 W/m.K, k7 board has a composite foil texture. A special range of Kingspan TR26 and TR27 are available which have coated glass tissue surfaces on both sides. Both kinds of roofs, plain or vegetated can be perfectly insulated using either H350R or N300R models of Kingspan Styrozone. Board sizes are 1.25 by 0.6m. Since H350R has high compressive strength, it is common in all types of house insulation applications. KingspanTP10 can also be used for insulation of warm or pitched roofs. The TP10 board is a polyiso board similar to the TF70 board with a foil face on both sides.

Cavity walls

Cavity walls are the area people mostly miss out on during the insulation process which later on brings a lot of trouble. You must not make this mistake and insulate your cavity walls right away. Kingspan k8 board is a special type of Kooltherm designed for cavity wall insulation. Thermal conductivity ranges from 0.020-0.023 W/m.K. Its texture is composite foil. You can also go for the Kingspan k12 board which will provide you with good results. They have a composite foil facing on both surfaces which results in better insulation. The Kooltherm range will always give you a better thermal result when compared with a standard Polyiso board so when deciding which is best it is recommended to know what board will suit your application and pocket the best.
