XPS Insulation

Owens Corning™ Foamular® and Foamular® NGXTM Rigid Foam Products

Product Overview

XPS, or Extruded Polystyrene Insulation, also known as Rigid Foam, is well-suited for a variety of commercial and residential applications. The lightweight, durable rigid foam panels are easy to install and provide a long-term, stable insulating performance. The rigid foam’s closed-cell properties also make it highly moisture resistance. Here is a quick overview of each Foamular® insulation product that Metro carries:

Foamular Cavity Wall XPS Insulation

products provide an insulating performance of R-5 per inch, along with independently tested fire, moisture and air-leakage resistance. High R-CW Plus Type IV provides an R-value of 10 or more. All serve as smart alternatives to Dow CavityMateTM products.

Foamular CI-C XPS Wall Insulation

Foamular® CI-C XPS insulation is a closed-cell, moisture-resistant rigid foam board specifically designed to allow exterior coatings, such as stucco, stone, and EIFS applications, to properly adhere to the insulation. It was created for applications where Foamular F-250-25 Type IV insulation may not be suitable. CI-C, a Continuous Insulation under Coatings product, has a value of R-5 per inch and is available in 1” to 4” thickness.

Foamular XPS Roofing Insulation

Foamular® 404 and 604 XPS Insulation products are produced through Owen Corning’s patented HYDROVAC® process. The insulation is installed directly over the roof membrane and protects it from physical damage, thermal stress and UV exposure. These roofing products also provide a stable R-value of R-5 per inch of thickness. Compare 604 XPS Insulation to Dow® PlazaMateTM.

Foamular® DuraPink and ThermaPink Insulation products protect single ply roofing systems, including metal roofs, with a stable R-value and high resistance to water absorption. Both products have performance ratings from UL and FM (Factory Mutual), including ASTM E108 Class A and wind uplift resistance classifications.

Owens CorningTM Insulation Accessories are also available from Metro, including QuietZone® Acoustic Caulk-UPS products and PROPINK® One Gun Foam.

Foamular® Lifetime Limited Warranty is available for the entire XPS product line and covers equivalent product replacement or the original purchase price.
