The STYROFOAM™ range of blue extruded foamed polystyrene insulation products includes FLOORMATE™, ROOFMATE™ and PERIMATE™.
STYROFOAM products contain a flame retardant additive to inhibit accidental ignition from a small fire source. STYROFOAM is, however, combustible and if exposed to an intensive fire may burn rapidly.
During shipment, storage, installation and use STYROFOAM products should not be exposed to flames or other ignition sources.
Fire classification is based on small scale tests, which may not reflect the reaction of the products in its end use state under actual fire conditions.
STYROFOAM products should, when installed, be adequately protected from direct exposure to fire.
Recommendations about the methods, use of materials and construction details are given as a service to designers and contractors. These are based on the experience of Dow with the use of STYROFOAM products. Any drawings are meant only to illustrate various possible applications and should not be taken as a basis for design. Since Dow is a materials supplier and exercises no control over the installation of STYROFOAM products, no responsibility is accepted for such drawings and recommendations.
In particular, no responsibility is accepted by Dow for the systems in which STYROFOAM is used or the method of application by which it is installed. The legal obligations of Dow in respect of any sale of STYROFOAM products shall be determined solely by the terms of the respective sales contract.
