|Nominal Board Thickness(1), in||R-Value(2)||Board Size, ft||Edge Treatment||Min Compressive Strength(3), psi|
|1.0||5.0||4 x 8||Shiplap||16|
|1.5||7.5||4 x 8||Shiplap||16|

|2.5||12.5||4 x 8||Shiplap||16|
(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 Insulation – 40, 60 and 100 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. For static loads, 3:1 is suggested. For dynamic loads, 5:1 is suggested.
