A new product has been developed by Recticel Insulation Products to offer a better way of adding highly effective insulation to interior walls and ceilings. Eurothane PL (Plasterboard Laminate) provides a combination of high quality insulation, durability and a ready-to-decorate surface and is intended for use in internal dry-lining applications.
PL features a high-performance, rigid and closed cell polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam core which is faced on both sides with a multi-layer kraft and aluminium foil. An integral moisture barrier ensures effective control of condensation, while an additional layer of plasterboard bonded to one face provides an external surface that is ready for decoration.
Ideal for either new-build or refurbishment applications Eurothane
PL i s lightweight, easy to handle and cut, yet also tough and resilient. It can be used on any standard form of wall or roof construction and the availability of a wide range of thicknesses helps simplify the task of meeting the appropriate Building Regulation requirements.
The foam core of Eurothane
PL has an exceptionally low thermal conductivity of 0.022 W/mK, which is some 30% more efficient than many other insulation materials. Its closed cell nature also prevents it from absorbing water which helps limit flood damage and speed up the drying-out process. The new board is also manufactured to the highest levels of quality that are normally associated with the Recticel
The CE marked Eurothane
PL boards are rot-proof, durable and maintenance-free and offer Class 0 fire performance. They can be fixed directly to existing or new substrates, using either mechanical fixings or an appropriate adhesive plaster.
“As a company we are always looking to introduce new products that will satisfy the needs of our customers,” explains Recticel’s Sales and Marketing Director, Chris Hall. “Eurothane
PL joins the new Eurothane GP
board which we introduced recently and there are moiré new products to follow. Our intention is to offer our customers one of the UK’s widest ranges of high quality PIR insulation products and we are well on course to achieve that aim.”
