T. Clear Corporation focuses on manufacturing concrete building envelope products that provide durability, sustainability and energy efficiency. Choose either of our Protected Membrane Roof Systems - HeavyGUARD or LightGUARD(R) to achieve both insulation and ballast for your low slope roofing needs. For your sheathing and continuous insulation requirements look at our ProGUARD(R) Concrete Insulated Sheathing panels, which not only provide insulation and protection, but are also a perfect substrate for any type of exterior finish. To protect and insulate around your slab edge or rim joist see our WallGUARD(R) Concrete Faced Insulated Perimeter Wall Panels, which are designed to be used above and below grade. For your foundation or basement walls look for our ThermaDRY(R) Insulating Drainage Panels, which insulate and protect your concrete walls while providing drainage to move ground water away. . All of the products manufactured by T. Clear Corporation and all the raw materials that go into the products are produced or mined in the USA. We are a family owned and operated company, and we take pride in manufacturing top quality American Made products.

Construction: A composite of insulation and fabric. Closely-spaced vertical and horizontal channels on one side of the panel provide rapid drainage. The filtration fabric covering these channels overlaps the adjacent panels both vertically and horizontally and prevents ingress of soil particles into the drainage system. The panels are 2 feet by 8 feet (610 mm by 2438 mm), with tongue and groove edges all four sides, and are erected vertically.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** ProGUARD is intended to be applied directly to the exterior side of steel or wood studs with the concrete side facing out and the insulation placed directly against the studs. ProGUARD can also be attached to concreted foundation walls providing thermal protection for the building space from floor line to below ground line. The concrete exterior surface is designed to receive direct application of synthetic stucco finishes as well as sand and cement stucco, siding, synthetic stone, thin brick or other exterior finish systems. Additional waterproof coatings such as Water Armor may be applied as required by local code. Delete if not required.

If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
3.2
PREPARATION
A.
Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation.
B.
Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
3.3

A.
Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
3.4
INSULATING DRAINAGE PANEL INSTALLATION
A.
Thermadry Foundation Wall Insulation:
1.
Surface shall be smooth, monolithic and free of coarse aggregate. All debris should be cleaned off footings. Waterproofing should be cured and free of solvent.
2.
Mastic adhesives compatible with the foam and the waterproofing shall be used in six large, equally-spaced daubs on the non-fabric side of the panels to adhere them to the cured waterproofing temporarily until the backfill is in place. Begin by installing the first panel vertically, with the long edge flush with corner and the fabric flap on the right. The fabric flap on the horizontal edge shall be at the bottom of the panel and positioned to prevent backfill from entering the channels. Ensure the fabric on the long edge of the panel overlaps the previous panel. Continue until a corner is reached. Cut and install the corner panels. Use adhesive or staples to hold the flap in place. Additional loose filter fabric shall be installed to assure that all gaps are covered.
3.
Multiple Tier Installation: When additional tiers are required, proceed in a manner similar of that used to install the lower tier. Use of an approved adhesive applied to the wall aide will aid in holding the board until back fill. Take care that the fabric flap of the upper panels overlaps the lower panels.
4.
Top Edge Finishing: If the top edge of the panels is below grade, the edge shall be sealed off to prevent soil entry, using a J- or Z channel, sheathing tape, or soil fabric.
5.
Above Grade Installation: If the panels extend above grade, the exposed area shall be protected from physical damage and from ultraviolet exposure with a mechanically attached protection, such as pre-painted aluminum, vinyl, pressure-treated wood or latex coating.
6.
Completing the Drainage System: The panels shall be connected to a conventional subsurface tile and gravel bed drainage system capable of carrying away water drained through the channels of the panel.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
B.
Plaza Deck Installation:
1.
Where shown on the drawings and after the waterproofing membrane has been tested and accepted by the architect, loose-lay the insulation panels over the water proofing. (A thin film of water under the insulation will help it resist wind uplift during installation.) Fit all joints tightly, with the fabric up and carefully overlapped at all side and end joints. Provide temporary ballast if installation of the wearing surface is delayed.
2.
Precast Concrete Pavers (Specified in related specification): Where shown on the drawings, install the specified precast concrete pavers directly onto the insulation, maintaining tight joints. Shim unsupported paver corners as necessary to prevent rocking, using high density plastic shims.

3.5
CONCRETE FACED INSULATING SHEATHING INSTALLATION
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
A.
Steel and Wood Studs Application:
1.
Concrete Insulated sheathing shall be installed horizontally with the 8 feet (2438 mm) dimension perpendicular to the studs. The layout shall permit the panel ship-lap joint to fall on a stud line and fasteners should be placed 6 inches (152 mm) on center on the panel joint. Field fasteners shall be placed a minimum of 6 inches (152 mm) on the stud line if the studs are 16 inches (406 mm) or less on center and 4-1/2 inches (114 mm) on center if the studs are 24 inches (610 mm) on center.
2.
Fastening Screws: The screws shall be self drilling and shall have a 5/8 inch (16 mm) pancake head with either a square or star drive head. The screws shall be Climacoated to resist weather corrosion and salt spray. The screws shall be supplied by T. Clear Corp. in order to maintain the product warranty.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
B.
Masonry Substrate Application:
1.
For installation directly to concrete block or poured concrete, masonry type fasteners shall be used. Four 1/4 inch (6 mm) beads of a high quality, non-expanding, urethane adhesive similar to "PL Premium" shall be applied to the foam side of the panel along the four outer edges and at 12 inches (305 mm) from the long edge of the panel running the full length of the panel. Fasteners shall be applied through the concrete panel skin and foam insulation and into the masonry substrate. Fasteners shall be placed 12 inches (305 mm) O.C. over the entire panel surface. The panel fasteners shall have a weather resistant coating and all heads and panel joints shall be coated with Water Armor.
2.
All joints shall be sealed with fiberglass mesh tape embedded in an approved waterproofing compound similar to Water Armor as supplied by T. Clear Corp. Verify compatibility with the exterior finish manufacturer.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
