Insulation Board

Terraco EIFS strives to utilise the most suitable type of insulation board depending on the job at hand:

Expanded Polystyrene Insulation Board (EPS) is the most cost effective board used for general application and new buildings

Graphite EPS has 10% more efficient insulation properties, hence thinner sections are required and the product lends itself well for renovation work.

Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Board (XPS) has excellent impact resistance for special use in high traffic areas of where impact can be expected. It is also excellent for hot countries where a board with low vapour permeability is desired.

Mineral Wool Insulation Board (MW) has high breathability and is completely fireproof, so its use with wooden substructures is recommended. It is also recommended where the moisture level in the substrate is high.
