Dow Building Solutions has introduced Floormate 300-A to the UK. The blue extruded polystyrene foam insulation board is designed for use in floors, in applications ranging from residential to commercial buildings.

Along with low water absorption, ease of installation and good insulating properties, the material also has a nominal compressive strength of 300 kN/m2, and a design load – the load which will give maximum compression of 2% over 50 years – of 130 kN/m2. Floormate 300-A is manufactured using naturally occurring CO2 as a blowing agent to create the blue extruded polystyrene foam – reducing additional emission to the atmosphere which would contribute to climate change.

With a Global Warming Potential of less than five, Floormate 300-A qualifies for the Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM insulation specification credits, and is available in three thicknesses: 50mm, 75mm and 100mm.
