Need for Thermal Insulation

Increasing energy costs and availability problems emphasize the need for immediate energy conservation event in the oil producing countries. An effective way of saving energy is to improve the thermal insulation of buildings. This is particularly important in hot climates where the energy demand for cooling by air conditioning is very high. In addition to the need for energy saving, high insulation standards are justified by improved comport levels and increased building life. A well-insulated building will have a higher value.

Design Flexibility

With Artico's EPS, skilled applicators can create all sorts of exterior architectural detailing that would often be cost-prohibitive when using traditional construction methods. Cornices, arches, columns, keystones, cornerstones, special mouldings and decorative accents are some examples of the versatility offered by EIS.

Most of this detailing is computer-generated. The designs are precision-cut out of insulation board, attached to the substrate or wall, then covered with the EIS base coat, mesh and finish coat.

Using this innovative process, EIS applicators can give a striking, distinctive appearance to any building or residence.

Product Description

Styrofoam* thermal insulation boards were developed by the Dow Chemical Company in 1947. Since then, advance processes, products and application research and development work has taken place in the U.S.A., Canada, japan and Europe. Toady, a variety of grades of Styrofoam*, tailored to many applications and industries, is available in various size and with various edge treatments.

Extruded polystyrene foam is used in many parts of the world under widely differing climatic conditions. For example, Styrofoam* has been successfully used in the middle East at ambient temperatures of more then +40oC (+104oF), while, at the other extreme, Styrofoam* has been used in Alaska to protect the delicate permafrost at temperatures as low as -50oC (- 58oF) along 200km of gravel road servicing the trans Alaska Oil Pipeline.

Styrofoam* is manufactured by a continuous extrusion process which imparts a characteristic closed cell structure giving the product its unique physical properties. Extruded polystyrene rigid foam has a high resistance to water absorption and good mechanical properties. The manufacturing process, combined with inherent qualities of inherent component thermo plastic material gives Styrofoam* predictable long-term performance and high insulating value.
