If possible store product indoors.

Keep product tarped or covered to protect from weather. The key factor is moisture, which can be controlled by adhering to sound construction practices. Does it spark a question for you?

To make matters worse, condensation can be a source of moisture and a potential contributor to mildew growth. Looking at Canada in particular, extruded polystyrene insulation products are covered by the standard ULC S, which does NOT specify a density requirement. MatWeb is intended for personal, non-commercial use. They can grow wherever sufficient moisture, spores, optimal temperatures and nutrients are present. Our building scientists want to help you stgrofoam.

It should be noted that there are other performance properties listed in ASTM C that are often more important to consider when choosing the proper product for an intended application. One of the ways to manage moisture is to add insulation such that the condensing surface is not inside the wall system.


We appreciate your input. To be clear, no building assembly is likely to be completely free from the potential for mold formation, but good building practices unrelated to insulated sheathing will further reduce the potential or mold formation. Example- Thermax Light Duty 1-inch x 4ft x 8ft weighs 0.

As architects have likely heard, density is sometimes used to select a rigid foam insulation material for a particular application. They resist moisture absorption in the insulation itself.

Its properties will be different than expanded polystyrene beads because beads have voids between cell walls.

This further reduce the potential for mold and mildew growth. With increased attention on resiliency and building code requirements of late, the most asked topics are about mildew, flame spread requirements, and how to material storage. Questions or comments about MatWeb?

This scorebboard is produced as sheets of closed-cell foam by a continuous extrusion process. If product does get wet, allow it to air dry before covering with exterior coverings. Walls constructed with proper construction techniques and using an appropriate thickness of insulating sheathing will: Data sheets for overmetals, plastics, ceramics, and composites.

We advise that you only use the original value or one of its raw conversions in your calculations to minimize rounding error. We also ask that you refer to MatWeb’s terms of use regarding this information.

However, Terra cotta, metal panel and fiber cement siding veneers will probably not appreciably increase the R-value of the system. To get weight of 1-inch x 4 feet x 8 feet board multiple the value in table by Please contact us at webmaster matweb. The quick answer is: Ultimately, good construction detailing, compliance with proper installation guidelines for materials, and maintenance of the wall system are key to managing the moisture infiltration scogeboard the building envelope.
