When it comes to high quality, lightweight and high performance materials, BASF defines the path for industries. Using our established knowledge of material science, we provide solutions to your challenges.
BASF Slentex is a non-combustible thermal barrier for insulating foundations, slab edges, under slab, and exterior wall applications and penetrations located in the USA as well as Canada. Because of its pliability, Slentex® can solve insulation continuity problems in areas with limited space or with curved and irregular surfaces.
Suggested uses:
Window wall slab edges or trim panels.
Brick returns to sheathing at openings.
Transitions from wall sheathing to curtain wall with insertion of Slentex® into glazing pocket.
Thermal isolation wrap for structural and non-structural elements abutting or penetrating exterior walls.
Parapet copings.
Thermal isolation and transitions in soffit construction.
Thermal isolation in split slab construction.
Thermal isolation for steel stud sill track.
Slab-on-grade insulation.
Pipe insulation in exterior column covers.
