With long term proven performance and creep data, it is an ideal engineered product that designers may confidently specify in today’s increasingly highly insulated designs. For sandwich panel cores, the lightweight, close tolerance, dust-free surface allows for excellent bonding to a wide variety of sheet materials.
Dow Styrofoam LB has been specifically designed to withstand severe dynamic loads and stresses which may eventually lead to fatigue and failure. It is specially designed to resist such force and in tests has been shown to perform extremely well under dynamic load cycling.
Dow Styrofoam LB is manufactured through a continuous extrusion process, and as with all Styrofoam products, possess a rigid closed cell structure with unique properties such as low thermal conductivity, high resistance to water penetration and high compressive strength.
Dow Styrofoam LB is produced in a range of thicknesses and is smooth on both facers. By placing the insulation outside the building mass it protects both membrane and slab from thermal cycling and loading.
The Dow Styrofoam LB range will help curb escalating energy bills, reduce a building’s carbon footprint and provide a more comfortable indoor environment.
