ISOLOFOAM HD 160, XHD 200 | 300

Versatile rigid high-density insulation

Multiple indoor and outdoor uses

The most versatile of our rigid insulation, the HD and XHD panels are available in several compressive strengths and are designed for use above or below ground level. They meet almost every possible need: above-grade wall, foundation, concrete slab, floor, ceiling and cathedral ceiling, and offer both a cost-effective and efficient solution.

NEW AND RENOVATION
Residential. Commercial. Industrial. Institutional. Agricultural.

Advantages

EFFICIENT THERMAL BARRIER
Continuous insulation with a stable and permanent insulation value. You benefit from superior insulation properties in a wide variety of sizes, thicknesses and compressive strengths.

SUITABLE FOR MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS
Installs anywhere in the building. With a high permeability to water vapour, it can be installed both outside and inside walls and for applications below ground level, ensuring peace of mind for building owners.

INSTALLATION : MORE VERSATILITY
Lightweight. Simple. Convenient. In addition to installing virtually anywhere, HD and XHD panels come in a wide variety of sizes, thicknesses, and compressive strengths to maximize handling and installation time.

Continuous insulation with a stable and permanent insulation value

  • Increases a building’s comfort and energy efficiency.
  • Reduces undesirable heat transfer zones called thermal bridges year after year.

Installs anywhere in the building 

  • Commonly used in below-grade applications.
  • Resistant to water and moisture, as well as to freezing and thawing, dries once the soil drains.
  • Non-Vapour Barrier: when installed outdoors, it allows moisture in the walls to escape, preventing it from being trapped and causing structural problems.
  • No need to calculate the dew point.

Lightweight. Simple. Convenient. 

  • Easily installs indoors or outdoors.
  • Several formats and compressive strengths available. Custom dimensions and thicknesses also available.
  • Lightweight and easy to handle.
  • Reduces installation time and labour costs.

Slab. Foundation. Wall. Floor. Ceiling.

AN ECONOMIC, EFFICIENT, HIGH-PERFORMANCE INSULATION
Widely available. Suitable for any type of project.

CONSULT INSTALLATION GUIDES AND CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

 

Above-grade wall installation

Exterior

  1. Install insulation on the wood studs.
  2. Temporarily attach with nails or screws and supporting washers.
  3. Add an air / weather barrier (optional).
  4. Seal all joints with sealing tape or a self-adhesive sealing membrane.
  5. Seal all material transitions with caulking/sealant (openings, electrical boxes, etc.) and prepare window jambs, sills and headers to ensure air- and watertightness.
  6. Install 1″ x 3″ wood furs (optional).
  7. Install exterior wall cladding.

Above-grade wall installation

Interior

  1. Install insulation on the wood studs.
  2. Temporarily attach with nails or screws and supporting washers.
  3. Add a vapour barrier.
  4. Seal all joints with vapour barrier tape.
  5. Seal all material transitions with caulking/sealant (openings, electrical boxes, etc.) and prepare window jambs, sills and headers to ensure air- and watertightness.
  6. Install 1″ x 3″ wood furs (optional).
  7. Install thermal barrier.

Foundation insulation

Exterior

  1. Make sure that the French drain around the house is functional.
  2. Install a dry bituminous waterproofing coating on the concrete wall.
  3. Install the insulation boards vertically over the entire height of the foundation.
  4. Cover the above-ground portion of the panels with acrylic coating or parging.
  5. Backfill with soil.

Underslab insulation

New construction

  1. Soil preparation: Level crushed granular base or sand.
  2. Install the insulation boards over the entire surface to be insulated.
  3. Install a vapour barrier polythene over the entire surface (if specified in your local building code) to ensure airtightness, moisture protection and soil gas control.
  4. Install wire mesh (if required) for slab reinforcement.
  5. Pour the concrete slab.

Over slab insulation

Renovation

  1. Existing concrete slab: Make sure to fix cracks or infiltration problems before any work begins.
  2. Install a vapour barrier polythene over the entire surface (if specified in the building code in your area) to ensure airtightness, moisture protection and soil gas control.
  3. Install insulation boards over the entire surface to be insulated.
  4. Install 1″ x 3″ wood furs (optional).
  5. Install plywood.
  6. Install floor covering.
