Why EPS? Because among all insulations available, EPS stands out as the greenest.
Both PlastiSpan and DuroFoam:
• Are hydro chlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) free
• Provide stable R-value (thermal protection) that does not diminish with age
• Do not support the growth of mold
• Are manufactured regionally so less fuel is used for transportation
• Do not adversely affect indoor air quality
Plasti-Fab’s EPS thermal insulation products, manufactured at plants across Canada, are used to help homeowners save energy and money. When applied to the exterior of the building envelope, Plasti-Fab EPS insulation will significantly reduce drafts and cold spots. For the weekend warrior, PlastiSpan and/or DuroFoam insulation are available in home improvement stores across Canada and come in 2’x 8’ or 4’x 8’ sheets, which are easy to handle and install. For added R-Value, each of these rigid insulation products is perfect for retrofitting basement and exterior walls, ceilings and floors.
Plasti-Fab makes all of its thermal insulation products without HCFCs, a chemical with ozone-depleting potential that can provide increased R-value for some insulation products initially. However, the HCFC in these products diminishes over time and the R-value deteriorates. The rigid closed-cell structure of DuroFoam and PlastiSpan insulation contains only air so the R-Value does not decrease with time and the insulation continues to save the same amount of energy year in and year out.
