ISOVER HAS LAUNCHED A BRAND NEW STONE WOOL INSULATION PERFECT FOR FACADE APPLICATIONS.
Isover Polterm Max Plus is a new non-combustible 1200 x 600mm stone mineral wool slab for rainscreen cladding and over-cladding applications. It delivers outstanding thermal and acoustic performance, whilst also achieving best attainable A1 Euroclass fire classification according to EN 13501-1.
The Polterm Max Plus is a range of external insulation cladding that will help customers reduce heat loss within a building due to the range having a thermal conductivity of 0.035W/mK. Slabs can be tightly butted together, while the inner face accommodates substrate irregularities, to maximise the thermal performance.
Isover’s new range, Polterm Max Plus also enhances the acoustic performance of the external envelope, by reducing the airborne noise from weather and vehicles. It also contains water repellent additive to protect against moisture ingress during installation.
The external wall insulation has a black glass veil on the external facing side which adds to the aesthetics of the installation, preventing unwanted sightings of the insulation from behind a ventilated rainscreen facade system.
Stuart Dumbarton, Head of Product Management at Isover, commented: “The launch of Polterm Max Plus demonstrates our commitment to continually improving our product offer with solutions that add value for our customers.”
“Polterm Max Plus can be used in conjunction with our Steel Frame Infill Batt, which is designed to fully fill the steel frame stud and provide additional thermal and acoustic performance.”
Isover Polterm Max Plus is manufactured to Quality Management Standard BS EN ISO 9001 in accordance with the CE marking requirements under the Construction Products Directive and to product standard EN 13162.
