    ROOFMATE Insulation
    Engineered for use on heavyweight decks (e.g. reinforced concrete) with a ballast layer of gravel or concrete slabs, Styrofoam™ Brand Roofmate™ Insulation helps the roof membrane maintain a steady temperature, minimizing the harmful effects of freeze-thaw cycles, weathering and physical damage during and after construction. Complies with the following codes: • Meets IBC/IRC requirements for foam plastic insulation; see ICC-ES ESR 2142 • ICBO-ES ER-2257 • BOCA-ES RR 21-02 • Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) Classified, see Classification Certificate D369 • Factory Mutual Approved – Subject to conditions of approval as a roof insulation when installed as described in the current edition of FM Approval Guide • National Building Code of Canada • CCMC – Evaluation Listing #04888-L Product Information Sheet
    ROOFMATE ROOFMATE™ Ribbed Insulation
    Styrofoam™ Brand Ribbed Roofmate™ Extruded Polystyrene Foam Insulation* is designed for use above waterproofing membrane in protected membrane systems (PMR) that include pavers or patio stones as primary ballast. It helps the roof membrane maintain a steady temperature, minimizing the harmful effects of freezethaw cycles, weathering and physical damage during and after construction. Complies with the following codes: • Meets IBC/IRC requirements for foam plastic insulation; see ICC-ES ESR 2142 • ICBO-ES ER-2257 • BOCA-ES RR 21-02 • Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.(UL) Classified, see Classification Certificate D369 • Factory Mutual Approved – Subject to conditions of approval as a roof insulation when installed as described in the current edition of FM Approval Code. Product Information Sheet
    ROOFMATE SL-AP Insulation
    Roofmate SL-A Inverted Roof Insulation comprises extruded polystyrene foam boards, rebated for lap jointing (see Figure 1). The product can be used in conjunction with Roofmate MK, a filter/water-control membrane, between the insulation and the ballast layer, forming the Roofmate MinK system, to minimise rainwater flowing underneath the insulation and consequent additional heat loss, for use with a gravel ballast or paving finish. Complies with the following codes: • Meets IBC/IRC requirements for foam plastic insulation; see ICC-ES ESR 2142 • ICBO-ES ER-2257 • BOCA-ES RR 21-02 • Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) Classified, see Classification Certificate D369 • Factory Mutual Approved – Subject to conditions of approval as a roof insulation when installed as described in the current edition of FM Approval Guide • National Building Code of Canada • CCMC – Evaluation Listing #04888-L Product Information Sheet

    1 Values are consistent with the criteria of ASTM C578 and the requirements of the FTC R-value rule (16 CFR Part 460).

    2 R means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power.

    3 Vertical compressive strength is measured at 10 percent deformation or at yield, whichever occurs first. Since Styrofoam™ Brand Extruded Polystyrene Foam Insulations are visco-elastic materials, adequate design safety factors should be used to prevent long-term creep and fatigue deformation. For static loads, 3:1 is suggested. For dynamic loads, 10:1 is suggested.

    4 Water vapor permeance varies with product type and thickness. Values are based on the desiccant method, and they apply to insulation 1" in thickness. Thicker products have lower permeance. Based on 1” thickness.

    5 This numerical flame spread rating is not intended to reflect hazards presented by this or any other material under actual fire conditions.
