Envirosheet

Overview

Envirosheet is a high performance flat sheet rigid foam insulation made from Expanded Polystyrene (EPS).

Envirosheet provides the best value and economy because it provides the highest r-value per dollar of all generic rigid insulation types on the market.

Benefits

  • Creates thermal envelope for maximum heat/cooling efficiency
  • Moisture resistant for lasting performance
  • Provides level surface for finishings
  • Lightweight, easy to handle
  • Recyclable, contains no CFCs or HCFCs

Size & Density

To meet your unique construction needs, we offer a broad range of products, both conventional and innovative, for every kind of building insulation application.

Envirosheet is available in 2′ x 8′ ,  4′ x 8′, 4′ x 9′ sheets in compressive strengths from 12.5 psi, to 60.0 psi, in regular butt end joint. Special orders can also be easily accommodated.

Applications

Envirosheet Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam board applied over exterior walls eliminates thermal bridging, reduces air infiltration and provides a higher r-value. Various finishes including, stucco, siding, brick veneer and all other traditional exterior finishes can easily be used in combination with Amvic EPS insulation.

Envirosheet Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam board can be applied directly over damp proofing or waterproofing systems and anchored (various/optional) into the concrete/block walls. Amvic EPS foam board remaining above grade must be UV protected with parging coat to prevent damage.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is a combustible material. When tested in accordance with CAN/ULC S102.2, combustible material of greater density or increased thickness will increase fuel loading and hence increase the measured flame spread ratings.
