Insulation for Concrete Slabs & Radiant Heat
This entry was posted on January 11, 2012.
Do you want a thermal break between your poured slab and the ground below? Are you going to install a polyethylene sheet as a vapor barrier? Do you want a radon barrier? If you've answered yes to any of these questions Tempshield Concrete Slab Insulation may be right for you.
It is an approved radon barrier which is now code in several locations in the United States. At 0.02 Perms, it is already an approved vapor barrier. At 60 lb./in puncture resistance it will hold up to all jobsite abuse and not tear like standard poly. Because of the 5/16" thick cellular construction, the material provides an effective thermal break. This results in an R-1.1.
Per square foot, Tempshield Concrete Slab Insulation is the most affordable product on the market to provide a vapor barrier and pick up some R-Value. Because the insulation is rolled, in installs lightning fast compared to any board type insulation. Because it's strong and flexible it can be installed on jobs with uneven grade without breaking. It also is lightweight to handle and easy to install. Transportation is not an issue. We ship directly to you.
Tempshield is non-toxic and non-carcinogenic as well as environmentally safe. The material consists of seven layers. The first white poly layer is bonded to the foil to protect from lime in the curing concrete. Each outer layer is bonded to a tough layer of polyethylene for strength. Two inner layers of insulating bubbles resist conductive heat flow while a center layer of polyethylene gives Tempshield high reliability and strength.
For the concrete contractor or installer who is looking for a cost effective insulation that provides a vapor and radon barrier as well as thermal performance, you can buy Tempshield Concrete Slab Insulation here, at our Concrete Slabs and Radiant Heat Insulation site.
