A New Energy Saving Roofing Insulation Board System of Polyphenylene Foam Concrete


Article Preview

In engineering practice, the most widely used roof insulation materials are expanded perlite, expanded vermiculite, extruded polystyrene board (XPS), expanded polystyrene board (EPS), foam glass block,rigid polyurethane foam insulation layer, and so on. These products have many advantages, such as light weight, high compressive strength, good integral property, convenient construction. But there are a lot of defects at the same time, such as bad fireproof performance and durability, environmental pollution, and so on. So we need an efficient roofing insulation materials to meet the growing needs of the roofing energy saving, energy saving roofing insulation board system of polyphenylene foam concrete just meet this demand, it has the characteristics of thermal insulation, lightweight and compressive resistance, waterproof and moistureproof, fire durable, and simple structure. Through the application of this new materials in practical engineering, the energy saving roofing insulation board will provide an efficient and practical material for future roof thermal insulation and energy saving.
