Kingspan Unveils Kooltherm K20 Concrete Sandwich Board for Tilt-up and Precast Walls

March 16, 2017

Commercial construction professionals are always looking for higher performance and smaller dimensions in the materials with which they work. To address those demands, Kingspan Insulation has introduced the new Kooltherm® K20 Concrete Sandwich Board, a premium performance rigid thermoset insulation that is ideal for tilt-up and precast concrete wall applications. It offers a higher R-value per inch than any commonly used insulation and is designed to enable thinner wall assemblies, helping to maximize building space.

“The demands on architects and construction engineers to get more out of their designs has put pressure on insulation suppliers to develop thinner materials that offer even more performance,” said Alswinn Kieboom, managing director, Kingspan Insulation North America. “With Kooltherm® K20 Concrete Sandwich Board, we have responded in full force. The product is easy to install, delivers outstanding performance and is already deployed in several projects around the country.”

The core of Kingspan Kooltherm® K20 Concrete Sandwich Board is a premium performance rigid thermoset fiber-free phenolic insulant manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP). It offers an R-value of 17 on 2 inches, outstanding fire and smoke performance and is unaffected by air infiltration.

Kingspan Kooltherm® K20 Concrete Sandwich Board is available in standard sizes or can be ordered in custom lengths, and comes in R-values ranging from 13.5 to 40.
