  • Shiplap edge (U.S. only) and butt edge
  • Minimum compressive strength of 15 psi

Typical Physical Properties

These properties are typical but do not constitute specifications.

STYROFOAM™ CAVITYMATE™ - U.S. Commercial

Nominal Board Thickness(1), in R-Value(2) Board Size, in Edge Treatment Min Compressive Strength(3), psi
1.0 5.0 16 x 96 Square Edge 15
1.5 7.5 16 x 96 Square Edge 15
2.0 10.0 16 x 96 Square Edge 15
3.0 15.0 16 x 96 Square Edge 15

(1) Not all product sizes are available in all regions.

(2) R means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. R-values are expressed in ft2• h•°F/Btu. R-value determined by ASTM C518.

(3) Vertical compressive strength is measured at 10% deformation (5% for STYROFOAM™ Brand PLAZAMATE™ Insulation and for STYROFOAM™ Brand HIGHLOAD 40, 60 and 100 Insulation products) or at yield, whichever occurs first. Since STYROFOAM™ Brand Extruded Polystyrene and Dow polyisocyanurate insulation products are visco-elastic materials, adequate design safety factors should be used to prevent long-term creep. Adequate design safety factors are needed.  For more information visit our Answer Center.

(1) Not all product sizes are available in all regions.

(2)R means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value or RSI (R-Value Système Internationale), the greater the insulating power. R-values are expressed in ft2• h•°F/Btu. RSI values are expressed in m2 °C/W. R-value determined by ASTM C518.

(3) Vertical compressive strength is measured at 10% deformation (5% for STYROFOAM™ Brand HIGHLOAD 40, 60 and 100 Insulation products) or at yield, whichever occurs first. Since STYROFOAM™ Brand Extruded Polystyrene products are visco-elastic materials, adequate design safety factors should be used to prevent long-term creep.
