New Roofing Insulation Product Reduces Material and Labor Costs
DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - April 23, 2008) - ACH Foam
Technologies announced SecureTherm, a new development in the EPS and roof
insulation market. SecureTherm is EPS roof insulation laminated with a
fiberglass facer. The fiberglass facer eliminates the need for a cover
board, which saves material costs and eliminates a step in the installation
According to Harry Treder of Harry Treder & Sons Roofing, SecureTherm is
much easier to work with than other insulation products. "We've had a great
experience with SecureTherm. We used to have to put a slip sheet or cover
board over EPS insulation. SecureTherm's rigid top is just what we need.
It's more stable, has a good R-value and it saves us installation time."
SecureTherm is approved for UL Class A Assemblies and is used in low-sloped
applications employing all mechanically fastened or ballasted single ply,
modified bitumen and built-up roof systems. EPS Roof Insulation has no
thermal drift and offers high performance and compatibility with major
roofing materials and systems. SecureTherm will be presented with other ACH
roofing products at the Western
Roofing Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center from June 8 to 11;
booth number 127.
"ACH is continually evaluating its products to ensure we are offering our
customers the highest quality and the most innovative, cost-saving
solutions," said Frank Kiesecker, VP Sales. "Last summer with the release
of ICC-ES Evaluation Report ESR-2043, ACH developed Direct-to-Deck roofing
insulation, which can be applied directly over steel roofs, eliminating the
need for a thermal barrier. Just as Direct-to-Deck eliminates an entire
step in the installation process as well as reduces roof system material
costs, SecureTherm eliminates the need for a cover board for mechanically
attached single ply systems." Customers should consult membrane
manufacturers for system requirements.
ACH also manufactures these roofing insulation
ACH EPS roof insulation is recyclable. Any post-industrial scrap or
recovered product can be ground and turned into new EPS products or
thermally processed into a resin to make other products such as garden
furniture, coat hangers and disposable cameras. EPS contains no CFCs, HFCs,
HCFCs or formaldehyde. Unlike polyisocyanurate (ISO) and extruded
polystyrene (XPS), EPS has no thermal drift and is less costly, making it
more affordable to the roofing market.
