Board Insulation (BD)

Board Insulation

 

Board Insulation is composed of fine, stable and uniformly textured inorganic glass fibers bonded together by a non-water soluble and fire-retardant thermosetting and heat resistant resin, and formed into semi-rigid rectangular boards or slabs. It is free from coarse fibers and shot due to its mineral composition.

Facing

Board Insulation is available unfaced or with a factory applied Kraft, Aluminium Foil or Aluminium Foil Glass Reinforced Kraft Paper (FRK) vapor barriers or other specific subtract laminated on one side.

Application

AFICO Board Insulation is a semi-rigid and rigid glass fiber board intended for use in commercial, institutional, industrial and residential construction as thermal and acoustical insulation for exterior walls, interior walls and partitions, cavity wall construction, floor, precast structures and prefabricated houses. The semi-rigid boards with densities from 24 - 48 kg/m3 , 1.5 - 3.0 lb/ft3 are flexible insulation boards for application over irregularly shaped surfaces where board-like properties are desired. The rigid boards with densities from 56 - 120 kg/m3, 3.5 - 7.5 lb/ft3 are even more rigid for strength, abuse resistance and a flat appearance.

Installation Recommendation

AFICO Board Insulation products can be easily cut with a knife and neatly fitted into irregularly shaped areas.

For Vertical Applications: AFICO Board Insulation can be installed between furring, strips or Z channels. For enclosed applications the product can be impaled on impaling pins and/or adhered with adhesives.

For Horizontal Applications: AFICO Board Insulation can be installed by the use of impaling pins against horizontal surfaces.

On Masonry Surface: AFICO Board Insulation can be installed between withes and on wall faces with impaling pins, mechanical fasteners and/or adhesives.

On Precast Concrete: AFICO Board Insulation can be installed using impaling pins and/or appropriate adhesives.
