Graphite particles in Thermagraphite act as reflectors of heat, cold and sounds as they enter the cell structure – Providing in excess of 24% more insulation benefit than conventional insulation in summer and winter
PASSED ALL compliance requirements when evaluated in accordance with NCC 2019 Volume 2 AS/NZS 4859 Parts 1 & 2 to achieve the following:
Stabilised air is a good insulator, and ABBEY’s cladding insulation is extremely effective because it contains finely shaped spherical particles which are 98% air – similar to that of the highest quality vacuum flasks.
Our cladding insulation material has very high durability
ABBEY cladding insulation material contains a fire retardant additive and do not present an undue fire hazard. Our insulation can be recycled during the manufacturing process with any excess ground back up and returned into the blocks.
ABBEY insulation can be used in any application that insulation and strength are required and is often combined with ABBEY aluminium cladding and vinyl cladding.
Thermagraphite is ABBEY Thermalboards’ most popular option. They are most effective in foil- covered products and even more so in ABBEY Thermalboards’ vinyl cladding.
ABBEY Thermalboards is a major user of Thermagraphite – a graphite enriched insulation
Thermagraphite is a graphite polystyrene (GPS) rigid foam insulation that is fire retardant, self-extinguishing. The material is nonhazardous according to the health criteria of the (ASCC). The blend of polystyrene and graphite is slightly denser than plain insulation. It has greater insulation performance than that of conventional expandable polystyrene (EPS) of the same density and thickness due to tiny particles of graphite that are embedded in the EPS beads to reflect and absorb radiation.
