As an insulation and interior finish system for walls and ceilings, Thermax™ Heavy Duty Insulation stands up to the elements with a fiberglass core and thermoset-coated aluminum facing.
Thermax™ Heavy Duty
Thermax™ Heavy Duty Insulation is designed as an insulation and interior finish system for walls and ceilings in metal, wood post frame, and concrete or masonry buildings, as governed by building codes. Thermax™ Heavy Duty consists of a glass-fiber-reinforced polyisocyanurate foam core faced with nominal 4 mil embossed white thermoset-coated aluminum on one side and 1.25 mil embossed aluminum on the other. The tough 4 mil white embossed aluminum surface makes it a durable insulation/finish choice for use in moderate-impact areas, and it can be pressure washed up to 2,000 psi with a 15-degree or greater spray tip (at 3’ minimum distance). Thermax™ Heavy Duty also offers high, long-term thermal resistance, with facers that help prevent water and water vapor intrusion into the insulation foam allowing it to stabilize at a higher R-value. Used in conjunction with the appropriate joint closure system for the application, Thermax™ Heavy Duty – with its low perm rating – can help to reduce moisture condensation within and behind the insulation.
