Protection Board III Insulation is a fanfolded extruded polystyrene foam board with plastic film on one side. It is designed for use in commercial building perimeter concrete and masonry walls where waterproofing is a primary requirement.
Building Code Compliance
Meets IBC/IRC requirements for foam plastic insulation. See ESR-2142, BOCA-ES RR 21-02. UL Classified, see Classification Certificate U589.
Protection Board III Insulation installs quickly and easily on commercial foundation walls to help protect the waterproofing membrane from damage during backfill.

(1) 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.
(2) 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. For static loads, 3:1 is suggested. For dynamic loads, 5:1 is suggested.
