Jablite Invincible combines the benefits of a highly performing thermal insulation material – EPS (expanded polystyrene) – with a tough facing which protects the insulation and is highly resistant to damage.
“Our customers were telling us they want to use our A+ rated* EPS roof insulation. But, because it can be damaged by solvents it does not offer the flexibility they need on site,” says Richard Lee, Managing Director of the company.
“We developed Jablite Invincible to meet that need; it has a tough facing and can be used with solvent and PU adhesives. Invincible also works well with mechanically fixed single ply and cold applied bituminous systems – I hope we have created an insulation that gives contractors and specifiers the flexibility they require,” says Richard.
The material provides a layer of protection between the thermal insulation – the EPS – and the waterproof membrane, adding stability to the membrane ensuring maximum performance and extending its lifetime.
As well as being unaffected by solvents, the insulation is said to have excellent impact resistance, and a thermal conductivity performance of 0.036 or 0.035 depending on the material grade specified; this enables any required u-value to be achieved.
The manufacturer’s technical experts give advice on the thickness needed to meet the thermal performance specification and design the fall. Then Jablite Invincible is supplied in a single – easy to install – layer to site.
* Expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation has an A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide to Specification.
