The A. Proctor Group has launched a new vapour permeable insulation, which offers superior thermal performance and fire protection behind cladding.
Spacetherm Slentex A2 is the result of extensive research and development to produce a vapour permeable insulation with an A2 fire rating classification. The new insulation is a flexible, high-performance, silica aerogel-based insulation material of limited combustibility suitable for use in exterior and interior applications.
The product optimises both the thermal performance and fire properties of façade systems, enhancing the thermal performance of the ventilated façade and addressing thermal bridging. It is also useful in minimising thermal bridges around windows in areas such as window reveals.
With a thermal conductivity of 0.019 W/mK and engineered for space-critical applications, the product offers low thermal conductivity, superior compression strength, plus breathability allied to hydrophobic characteristics.
• Class leading fire performance from an Aerogel insulation
• Superior thermal performance
• Limited combustibility
• Water vapour diffusion open
• Thinnest Aerogel insulation available
Spacetherm Slentex A2 is available in a range of laminates utilising MgO and plasterboard as well as in a cold bridging strip format.
