With low water absorption, Ravatherm XPS X 200 SB has a natural resistance to rain, frost, snow and water vapour, making it an ideal choice for residential flooring applications.

Steel grey in colour and with a butt edge finish, Ravatherm XPS X 200 SB boards can be cut easily and accurately using hand tools, offering simple and quick installation with minimal waste. These lightweight boards can easily be positioned on site for installation below the slab or below the floor screed, as well as in beam and block floors.
