Kingspan Insulation LLC
insulation and wraps
GreenGuard®, a division of Pactiv LLC, became part of Kingspan Insulation in 2014. GreenGuard® products have been manufactured in the USA since 1982. GreenGuard® products are green beyond the color. They help to meet Green Building requirements to create healthier, more durable and cost-efficient structures.Kingspan Insulation is the world’s leading manufacturer of CFC/HCFC-free rigid phenolic and CFC/HCFC-free rigid urethane insulation. Kingspan Insulation is part of the larger Kingspan Group, which has operations in a range of product divisions including pre-insulated building panels, environmental technologies, and renewable energy technologies.
History of North American Activities at a Glance
The Group’s primary activities in the USA commenced in 1999, when Kingspan Corporation was established in Austin, Texas to facilitate the export of products. In 2001, Kingspan Group expanded its North American operations through the acquisition of America’s leading raised access floor business at the time: Tate Global Corporation, trading today as Tate Access Floors. Several years later, in 2008, The Group acquired composite sandwich panel manufacturer Metecno Inc. USA. In 2009 Kingspan Solar Inc. opened its new offices in Maryland and in that same year, Kingspan Insulation assumed full responsibility for The Kingspan KoolDuct System in North America.
The core of Kingspan Kooltherm® K10 FM Soffit Board is a premium performance rigid thermoset fiber-free phenolic insulant manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP).
The core of Kingspan Kooltherm® K12 Framing Board is a premium performance rigid thermoset fiber-free phenolic insulant manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP).
Installing insulation above the roofing membrane minimizes the harmful effects of freeze-thaw cycles, harsh weathering and ultra-violet light to which the roof membrane would normally be exposed.
Kingspan OPTIM-R is an optimum performance next generation insulation product. It is a rigid vacuum insulation panel comprising a microporous core, which is evacuated, encased and sealed in a thin, gas-tight envelope to give outstanding R-values, and an ultra-thin insulation solution.
With an R-value as high as R-56.782 for a 2″ panel thickness, Kingspan OPTIM-R provides an insulating performance that is up to 5 x better than other commonly available building insulation materials. The high level of thermal efficiency with minimal thickness, achieved by Kingspan OPTIM-R, can provide solutions for applications where a lack of construction depth or space is an issue.
Kingspan OPTIM-R is available in a range of board dimensions in different thicknesses to suit various applications, including roofs, walls and floors and in OEM systems.
GreenGuard MAX offers the best in building wrap performance. You get the water and air barrier properties that walls need for moisture protection and energy efficiency. Plus the durability and economical price that make this GreenGuard innovation a real world practicality. MAX is non-perforated, providing superior resistance against rain before the cladding goes on and against water that seeps through the cladding after installation.
PB6FA is an excellent choice for re-roofing single-ply membranes. The board's install time and ease of use give you the necessary tools for a lower installed cost. And the 20psi extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam provides durability and high moisture resistance. PB6HD is available as 4′ x 8′ sheet or 4′ x 50′ fanfold bundles.
When you need to re-roof, nothing works better as a cover board than GreenGuard® PB6. With an extruded polystyrene (XPS) core and high-impact polystyrene facers that do no delaminate, this board provides high moisture resistance and resistance to puncture. The 50 ft. fanfold bundles are light weight and easy to install, adding only 1/10 lb. per square foot. The result is a smooth surface, even over most gravel-surfaced roofs.
PB6W is an excellent choice for re-roofing with mechanically attached single-ply membranes. The board''s high compressive strength helps to create a smooth surface, even over most gravel surfaced roofs. And the extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam core provides high moisture resistance. PB6W can be used under mechanically attached or loose-laid and ballasted single-ply applications. It is both UL and FM approved. The 50′ fanfold bundles are easy to install and lightweight, adding only 1/10 lb. per sq. ft. With 3 lb. density foam and 3-ply facers that do not delaminate, PB6W delivers solid installed performance.
Kingspan GreenGuard® Seam Tape adds an extra layer of air and moisture protection to the structure. 1 7/8″ wide Kingspan GreenGuard® Standard Seam Tape is reecommended for flat surfaces. 3″ wide Kingspan GreenGuard® Custom Seam Tape is recommended for for uneven surfaces, such as Kingspan GreenGuard® RainDrop® Building Wrap.Both tapes stick tight in all seasons, even when the temperature drops below freezing. Long-lasting UV stabilizers help them resist the deteriorating effects of the sun. The tapes can also be used to repair rips in damaged insulation and building wrap, eliminating waste and saving money.
GreenGuard R-5 XPS Insulation Board is available as square-edge (CM) or shiplap-edge (SL) sheets.
Cutting energy use, cutting CO2 emissions & cutting costs with cutting edge HVAC ductwork
This cutting edge system comprises premium performance Kingspan KoolDuct panels, fabrication methods, coupling systems, a fabrication training program and a complete line of accessories to produce pre'insulated rectangular HVAC phenolic ductwork that can easily achieve SMACNA air-leakage Class 3.
Kingspan Insulation offers a complete product line providing all materials, tools and accessories necessary for the effective fabrication of phenolic ductwork from The Kingspan KoolDuct System. Kingspan Insulation also provides The Kingspan KoolDuct System Training Course, which is administered through appointed Kingspan KoolDuct System Delivery Partners and selected ITI training facilities.
The fiber-free insulation core of Kingspan KoolDuct panels (the duct wall material) minimizes the risk of loose fibers entering the airstream through the ductwork. This can provide better indoor air quality (IAQ) for building occupants compared with other insulants, which can produce loose fibers when in direct contact with the airstream. Kingspan KoolDuct panels are available in 7/8'" and 1 3/16'" thicknesses with installed and out of package R-values of R-6.0 and R-8.0 (respectively).
GreenGuard Attic Rafter Vents are designed to install between rafters to prevent clogging of the path from soffits to the attic wnen insulation is blown in. For finished attics, they can be attached behind the insulated area to create a backer for insulation and a channel for air movement through to the top venting area.
