Last year Ravago Building Solutions, Europe’s largest extruded polystyrene insulation (XPS) manufacturer, relaunched its market-leading range of XPS thermal insulation as Ravatherm XPS X. This new array of products offers a 16 per cent improvement in thermal performance in flooring applications compared to those previously, setting a new standard for thermal excellence.

New high-performance Ravatherm XPS X boards give architects unparalleled design flexibility. Target U-values can be attained with a lower thickness of insulation than ever before, ensuring the most creative and demanding of design specifications can be met. 

Ravatherm XPS X products are categorised by their compressive strength, ranging from 200kPa for residential applications to 700kPa suitable for high traffic, load-bearing industrial floors. The versatile boards can be installed under or over the slab in ground-bearing concrete floors and are suitable for use with suspended beam and block and timber floors.

The extrusion process used to produce Ravatherm XPS X results in a homogeneous, closed-cell material structure with a smooth surface skin. Consequently, the boards have several favourable material properties ideal for flooring applications, including permanent high-thermal performance, water and frost resistance, high flexible rigidity and high vapour diffusion resistance.

All products are available in a selection of thicknesses with declared lambda values of between 0.030 and 0.032 W/mK. Blown with CO2, Ravatherm XPS X also has a global warming potential (GWP) of less than 5. To minimise environmental impacts and shipping delays, manufacturing takes place in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.
