Penopelex 30 mm: features and specifications

The comfortable residence of a person in a new house depends on many factors, and the latter role in this case is covered by thermal insulation. The modern market offers a huge amount of materials for insulation, characteristics and cost. The most effective, as practice and consumer reviews showed, is “Penopelex” 30 mm.

What it is?

Penopelex (extruded polystyrene foam) was first submitted to the public in the USA more than 50 years ago. The material quickly won the confidence of buyers due to low thermal conductivity and affordable price.

At the stage of creating this product under pressure and high temperature, polystyrene granules are pressed, It uses a special catalyzing agent of carbon dioxide and light freon for foaming mass. Pre-mixture reminds thick pastry cream. After mixing and foaming, the whole fat passes through the special nozzles of the extrusion installation and comes out. Freon evaporates, and the resulting emptiness filled with air.

Thanks to such a complex technological process, the finished product is obtained in small-sided, and therefore – durable and easy.

All cells with air are isolated from each other, and their diameter does not exceed 0.1-0.2 mm. Standard Size Penopelex Panel 30 mm is 585×1185 mm. Sizes of plates of this product affect the number of sheets in the package. This criterion affects how many m² thermal insulation is contained in one pack.

As a rule, one packaging “Plenoplex” is enough to isolate 10.08 squares of the surface.

Advantages and disadvantages

Thermal insulation of a new generation “Penopelex” 30 mm in terms of its technical characteristics is largely surpassed by the previously popular Minvatu and Polyfoam.

It has excellent advantages.

  • Excellent thermal insulation. According to the calculations of specialists, Penoplex 30 mm replaces about 750 mm brick masonry. Low thermal conductivity of material makes it possible to significantly save funds, because during the insulation works you can use a thinner layer of “Penoplax”, rather than the same foam.
  • High strength. This property allows polystyrene plates to cope even with large vertical loads. Therefore, Penopelex 30 mm can be bought for the sheathing of bases and foundations, outdoor walls.
  • Excellent noise insulation. Extruded expanded polystyrene can be used to sound insulation. With it, it is successfully equipped with home studios or get rid of street noise irritating the nervous system. Extrusion partition “Eats” to 41 dB, giving darium long-awaited peace and silence.

  • Moisture resistance. The smaller the insulation passes the pairs and absorbs moisture, the better it copes with its functions. Penopelex 30 mm thick has zero moisture absorption, so it works on the walls as a thermos.
  • Small weight. Plates of “Plenoplex” 30 mm have a low weight, which allows them to quickly mount and save on transport.
  • Absolute security. Extruded polystyolster non-toxic, has no chemical smell, so harmless to human health and the environment. Even children’s toys are produced from some grades of extrusion. Harmful impurities, such as soot, slag, freon, are missing in the product, and therefore you can talk about the ecological stoves.

  • Long service life. Low quality foam crumbs from the slightest impacts. Even the most expensive mineral wool with the years begins to settle and sneak, and the insulation “Penopelex” 30 mm, even after 50 years of service, will not lose its original characteristics.
  • Low thermal conductivity. Thanks to microcells, the extrusion product is a low thermal conductivity material. In the house with such insulation, the summer will not be hot, and in the cold season it will not be cold.
  • Temperature range, in which you can work with Penopelex 30 mm ranges from -50 to + 75ºС.
  • Wide scope.

Material is easy and convenient in installation.

    The only disadvantage of extruded expanded polystyrene is that this product does not tolerate the effects of organic solvents, for example, acetone. Similar aggressive chemicals softened the plates, destroy their shape and even completely dissolve.

    Application area

    30 mm insulation plates of 30 mm are used for thermal insulation of walls, roofing, foundation, bases and floors in private possessions. As well as widespread use, the extrusion product found both in the insulation of balconies, loggias in urban high-altitude houses.

    “Penopelex” 30 mm insulate enclosing structures, garages and other types of household buildings.

    When laying the plates between the working surface of the insulating material and the facing surface, “cold bridges” are not formed, thereby creating an optimal microclimate inside the residential premises. The ambient temperature is always pleasant to find a person under all weather conditions.

    Due to the high strength of Penopelex, 30 mm withstands high loads both in horizontal and vertical position.

    In any condition, it is not deformed during cladding. Plates of extruded material do not absorb moisture, so products are successfully used to cover baths and saunas, wine cellars, pools and other rooms, where the level of humidity is constantly high. If you need to insulate the apartment, make repairs in a country house or perform waterproofing the foundation, do not need to overpay, buying “penplex” more expensive series.

    For internal works, it is quite enough extrusion “Penopelex” 30 mm. The packaging cost of this product will be significantly lower, compared to the same Penopelex 100 mm, in addition, the smaller thickness does not “eat” the useful housing area.

    Plate of insulation “Penopelex” thickness 30 is useful when arranged:

    • Warm floor systems;
    • waterproofing base and foundation;
    • any type of roofing and ceiling;
    • partitions or “well” wall masonry;
    • Garden tracks.

    Brands

      In the modern market you can meet several series of “Penoplas” 30 mm.

      • “Roof”. The main purpose is the device of the heat-insulating layer of any type of roof. The main advantage of these plates is the high strength and presence of antiprens (anti-healthy impurities) in the composition.
      • “The foundation”. Used for inner and outer sheaving the insulating layer of enclosing structures. If there are no special requirements for the load to this series, you can safely apply it for insulation of walls, floors, roofs, caps.
      • “Facade”. It is considered the best option for the insulation device of partitions, walls and facade surfaces. The advantage of these plates is the ability to self-effect and rough surface, and therefore – to the best adhesion of glue and plastering mixture.
      • “Comfort”. This isolation material, according to specialists, is suitable for almost any needs: the insulation of loggias and balconies, walls, flooring, isolation of the foundation, engineering communications and even garden tracks.

      Price

        The cost of thermal insulation material “Penopelex” 30 mm depends on who produced it, from the dealer that sells the plate on the market, from the selected series and the size of the sheet. Packaging of insulation plates 30 mm thick, consisting of 12 sheets, will cost customers of 950 rubles and above.

        The cost may be lower if you buy Penopelex wholesale and large parties. Penopelex sold only by packages. This facilitates the process of transporting it. Each packaging of the insulation thickness of 30 mm contains up to 16 plates (the number depends on the product size). On a pack, as a rule, there is a table for calculating the required number of plates.
