Product Summary

ROOFMATE insulation is an extruded, expanded, foamed Type 4 CAN / ULC-S701-97 / CAN / CGSB-51.20-M87 polystyrene rigid board designed specifically for roof applications. It is suitable for use in both protected membrane and conventional roof assemblies.

The extruded board has smooth, high-density skins, shiplap edges on four sides and a very dense closed-cell foam structure. Board size is 600 mm x 2400 mm (2' x 8'), in thickness ranging from 25 mm to 100 mm (1" to 4"). ROOFMATE has one of the highest thermal resistance values, an aged (RSI value of 0.87 per 25 mm (R 5.0 per inch). It has excellent water resistance characteristics (absorption of less than 1%) and a high compressive strength of 240 kPa (35 psi).

ROOFMATE is ideal for use in both standard and lightweight protected membrane roof systems and can be adhered or loosely applied. It is lightweight, easy to cut and simple to install year round.
