What are Celotex Insulation Boards Made From?
The TB4000, GA4000, and XR4000 Celotex insulation boards are made from polyisocyanurate. Polyisocyanurate is more commonly known as PIR. This is a thermoset plastic, which is produced in the form of foam. Celotex Insulation Boards also feature aluminum foil facings. The purpose of the foil facing is to improve the insulative properties of the board itself. When Celotex manufactures their PIR boards, they use a special lamination process to glue the low emissivity foil facing to the board. A blowing agent is also added to make the adhesive expand into foam. The finished product is then cut into boards. The thickness of these boards varies depending on the product code. Celotex insulation boards are available from 20mm up to 200mm.
Celotex U Value Calculator
The U Value is the measurement of how well a material performs as an insulator. To calculate the U Value, we need to know the type of insulation board being used as well as where it is being installed. This is because the U Value is dependent on where a product is used. On our website, you can find the R-Value of every Celotex Insulation Board. The R-value is the value that shows the resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-Value, the more insulating the product is. When calculating the U Value, we recommend that you use Saint Gobain’s very own U Value Calculator. This U Value Calculator can help assist you with your project.
Celotex is one of the most recognised brands of PIR rigid foam insulation boards. On our website, you can also find other popular PIR boards from brands such as Kingspan and Recticel. An advantage of Celotex is that it can achieve U Values with minimum thickness. It is also easy to cut and shape and is easily installed. In addition to this, Celotex Insulation Boards are CFC/HCFC free with zero ODP and low GWP. Insulation from Celotex can help the environment by creating buildings with better insulation properties.
