SOPRA-XPS 30 is a thermal insulation board made of rigid extruded polystyrene with shiplap or square edges on its four sides. It is composed of closed cell foam. It is mainly used as a thermal insulation for SOPREMA foundation walls systems and under concrete slabs where the applied loads do not exceed 30 psi.
The new formula of the SOPRA-XPS line mainly substitutes the use of HFC-134a (GWP of 1,3001) with a blowing agent of the HFO type (GWP of 1). As regards the impact on the GWP of the blowing agent, this is a reduction of at least 99.92%.
As illustrated below, the new SOPRA-XPS generation uses a blowing agent that has a GWP that is 99.33% lower than a GWP of 150, which is the maximum threshold allowed by Canadian regulations as of January 1, 2021.
Sopra-XPS 30 is a Passive House High-performance building material.
SOPRA-XPS 30 covers 192 sq.ft.
