  • Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Chosen By Abroboard for Model Yacht Building
    for over 40 years so he definitely knows what makes a good boat The physical properties that make Foamular an ideal material for model boat making are the same properties that make it ideal for insulation Foamular is a closed cell extruded polystyrene board this means it does not absorb moisture and still holds its shape even when wet Foamular also has high compressive strength so it isn t misshapen by the odd bump or scrape hence your boat will look great for longer foam board carvingCreating model boats is surprisingly complex with every model being created from a sheet of Foamular that is computer cut to create precision shaping down to the nearest mm Foamular is uses because it s very easy to work with but maintains its ridged shape and lightweight properties long after completion Abroboard coats the Foamular blanks with high impact resistant fibre cloth much like carbon fibre but much more cost effective Many new yachts cost 4000 but Abroboard s technological and material advances have helped dramatically reduce the price of a new boat helping many newcomers into the sport One problem with creating unique shapes with Foamular is the potential waste created form off

  • Green Roof Insulation - The Latest in Polystyrene
    becoming an increasingly popular roofing option for concrete roofs with many modern cities demanding a percentage of total roof space be green A green roof is a roof surface flat or pitched that is planted partially or completely with vegetation and a growing medium over a waterproof membrane It increases thermal mass and improves insulation creating more stable temperatures in the building below and therefore reducing energy demands for artificial heating and cooling reduces noise increases productive garden space and biodiversity provides beautiful views reduces the rainwater run off that ends up in stormwater systems and improves air quality Green Garden Roofs provide very low insulation from the soil and plants especially when wet for adequate R values added insulation is needed Foamular Extruded Polystyrene is a closed cell board with minimal water absorption and high R values It is placed below the soil but above the concrete roof creating a continuous thermal barrier It can also have pavers and ballast placed on it providing walkways and recreation areas as seen on the PRMA page Foamular Extruded Polystyrene provides no nutritional value to plants animals or bacteria so it is not degraded by their presence It also has very low
