STYROFOAM™ Brand UTILITYFIT™ XPS 15 PSI Insulation is a versatile, utility-grade extruded polystyrene foam insulation designed for use when a Type X, or lower-compressive-strength, product is needed.
Building Code Compliance
Complies with ASTM C578 Type X. Meets IBC/IRC requirements for foam plastic insulation. See ESR-2142, BOCA-ES RR 21-02, ICBO-ES ER-2257. UL Classified, see Classification Certificate D369.
STYROFOAM™ Brand UTILITYFIT™ XPS 15 PSI Insulation is a versatile, utility-grade insulation used in applications that do not require high compressive strength.
|Nominal Board Thickness(1), in||R-Value(2)||Board Size, ft||Edge Treatment||Min Compressive Strength(3), psi|
|1.0||5.0||2 x 8 / 4 x 8 / 4 x 9||Square Edge / Tongue and Groove / Scoreboard||15|
|1.5||7.5||2 x 8 / 4 x 8 / 4 x 9||Square Edge / Tongue and Groove / Scoreboard||15|
|2.0||10.0||2 x 8 / 4 x 8 / 4 x 9||Square Edge / Tongue and Groove / Scoreboard||15|
|3.0||15.0||2 x 8 / 4 x 8 / 4 x 9||Square Edge / Tongue and Groove / Scoreboard||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. For static loads, 3:1 is suggested. For dynamic loads, 5:1 is suggested.
