The DOW Insulation Range

 


 
 

DOW Thermax PIR Insulation

DOW Thermax PIR Insulation is a rigid insulation board consisting of a Polyisocyanurate (PIR) thermoset foam core which is reinforced with glass fibre and laminated between two reflective aluminium foil facings.

DOW Thermax PIR Insulation has a durable white acrylic-coated aluminum surface on one side and the other surface is embossed aluminium. The white acrylic-coated aluminum surface allows DOW Thermax PIR Insulation to be installed as an exposed product to the interior without the need for any additional materials like plasterboard.

The DOW Thermax PIR Insulation core will not melt or drip when exposed to fire but rather char which will prevent flame spread.

DOW Thermax PIR Insulation is manufactured with zero ODP (ozone depleting potential) and carries a Group 1 BCA fire rating classification. It is also one of the very few insulation products in Australia that have successfully passed the AS/ISO 9705 Burn Room Test.
 
 
Common Applications for DOW Thermax PIR Insulation:

  • Concrete floor soffit insulation
  • Car park insulation
  • Flat concrete roof insulation
  • Concrete wall insulation
  • Precast wall insulation
  • Block wall insulation
  • Masonry wall insulation
  • Brick veneer wall insulation
  • Double brick wall insulation
  • Weatherboard wall insulation
  • Steel framed wall insulation
  • Cavity wall insulation
  • Internal wall insulation


 
 

DOW Tuff-R PIR Insulation

DOW Tuff-R PIR Insulation is a rigid insulation board consisting of a Polyisocyanurate (PIR) thermoset foam core and laminated between two highly reflective aluminium foil facings. The facings do not allow air to penetrate into the core and also minimises any water or moisture intrusion.

DOW Tuff-R insulation is manufactured with zero ODP (ozone depleting potential) and carries a Group 1 BCA fire rating classification. DOW Tuff-R insulation is also Green Star Compliant.
 
 
Common Applications for DOW Tuff-R PIR Insulation are:

  • Concrete floor soffit insulation
  • Car park insulation
  • Flat concrete roof insulation
  • Concrete wall insulation
  • Precast wall insulation
  • Block wall insulation
  • Masonry wall insulation
  • Brick veneer wall insulation
  • Double brick wall insulation
  • Weatherboard wall insulation
  • Steel framed wall insulation
  • Cavity wall insulation
  • Internal wall insulation


 
 

DOW Styrofoam™ XPS Insulation

DOW Styrofoam XPS (Extruded Polystyrene) Insulation is a rigid insulation board with a closed cell structure and is manufactured through an extrusion process.  DOW Styrofoam XPS Insulation is quite unique in that not only does it possess extremely low thermal conductivity properties but it is also highly resistant to water penetration and has an extremely high compressive strength.

DOW Styrofoam XPS insulation has zero ODP (ozone depletion potential), is CFC and HCFC free, and is also Green Star Compliant.

DOW Styrofoam XPS insulation is manufactured in a variety of thicknesses, densities and compressive strengths that allow for a large number of insulating purposes, making it one of the most versatile insulating products on the market.

DOW Styrofoam XPS Insulation is available in the following compressive strengths:

  • 175 kPa
  • 200 kPa
  • 250 kPa
  • 300 kPa
  • 400 kPa
  • 700 kPa
