Thermo HDS High Density Rigid EPS Insulation

Fortefy Thermo HDS High Density Rigid Insulation - EPS Expanded Polystyrene Products by Forte EPS Solutions Toronto, ON

Fortefy Thermo HDS High Density Rigid insulation is a closed cell expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation that meets or exceeds the requirements of CAN/ULC-S701, Standard for Thermal Insulation, Polystyrene, Boards and Pipe Covering.

 

The closed cell structure of EPS insulation resists water absorption resulting in retention of its R-value in applications where severe temperature differentials occur.

 

With compressive strengths ranging from 20 PSI to 40 PSI, the HDS line of insulation is ideal for use in applications where heavy live and dead loading is expected.

Advantages

Meets all building code requirements

Meets and/or exceeds CAN/ULC-S701, Type 2, Type 3

Minimum Thermal resistance - RSI 0.70/25 mm (R-value 4.04/inch)

Closed cell insulation resists moisture and retains thermal value.

Available in 2’ x 8’ and 4’ x 8’ sheets, various thickness. Bundles up to 30” in height.

High compressive strength. Between 140 kPa (20 psi) and 275 kPa (40 psi). Its dimensional stability absorbs the movement of buildings.

Stable and long term thermal efficiency even when subjected to severe freeze-thaw cycles. Substantial energy savings.

Excellent resistance to moisture. Retention of Thermal value.

Lightweight for ease of installation.

Applications

Under Commercial and Industrial Concrete Slabs  (perimeter and throughout)

Vertically on the face of foundation walls

Sidewalks and platforms

Community Centres and Skating Rinks under slab

Both fresh and salt water application

 

E.I.F.S Billets

EIFS Billets - EPS Expanded Polystyrene Products by Forte EPS Solutions Toronto, ON

Exterior Insulated Finish Systems (E.I.F.S.) are insulated, multi-layered wall systems for use on both commercial and residential construction. These systems consist of an expanded polystyrene substrate that is fastened to the exterior wall surface, a base coat applied to the EPS and reinforced with fibreglass mesh, and synthetic stucco finish coat applied on top of the base coat.

 

E.I.F.S. systems allow flexibility of design and by putting the thermal mass of the structure on the inside of the insulation envelope, provide superior thermal performance over other cladding systems.

Advantages

Forte EPS Solutions’ E.I.F.S. grade EPS is manufactured to specifications as outlined by the EIFS Council of Canada -“EIFS Standards for Products and Installation”.

Conforms to S-102 and S-701 Standards for foamed plastics

Dried in a climate controlled room for dimensional stability and moisture content*

Forte EPS Solutions has the capability to produce all of the various E.I.F.S. manufacturers’ rear ventilated drain systems.

Custom EPS Packaging & Shapes

Custom Cutting, Packaging & Shapes - EPS Expanded Polystyrene Products by Forte EPS Solutions Toronto, ON

Expanded polystyrene’s flexibility makes it an excellent choice for lightweight packaging applications and for custom architectural shapes.  Our CNC guided hot wire cutting equipment can precisely cut custom two dimensional shapes providing tolerances of less than a 16th of an inch, creating architectural elements ( mouldings), exterior decorations, custom signs, theatre set back drops, or packaging products for flat pack and/or thermal packaging applications.

 

Packaging and other manufactured components can take almost any shape and can be integrated with other materials to provide the required protection.  We can reproduce from existing samples or help design new components from client supplied drawings. And all our EPS products are 100% recyclable.
