Benefits of Extruded Polystyrene Foam Construction Boards

If you’re in the market for a construction board that has superior insulation properties, extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam is the material you want. XPS construction boards offer several advantages over other types of construction boards. In this article, we will discuss some of the benefits extruded polystyrene foam offers over its competitors.

Energy Efficiency

The main advantage of extruded polystyrene foam is its superior insulation properties. Polystyrene boards have a higher R-value than other types of construction boards, meaning they can better resist heat transfer. R-Value means extruded polystyrene foam will make your home or office more energy-efficient, and extruded polystyrene foam construction is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint.

This makes them ideal for use in energy-efficient homes and buildings. For example, JACKOBOARD® XPS construction board provides excellent insulation property whilst being a perfect waterproof tile backing substrate.

Damage Resistant

Extruded polystyrene foam is also resistant to water damage and rot. This makes it an ideal material for use in wet or humid conditions. XPS foam is also very strong and durable, meaning it will last longer than other types of construction boards. XPS boards are very light, making them easy to work with and transport.

Environmentally Friendly

Extruded polystyrene foam is an environmentally friendly material that can be recycled or reused. Polystyrene boards have a long product life, making them a sustainable choice for construction projects. Along with their energy-efficient properties, they can help to have an overall better impact on the environment compared to other types of construction boards.

If you’re looking for a construction board with superior insulation properties, extruded polystyrene foam is the way to go. With its many benefits, extruded polystyrene foam is the perfect choice for your next construction project.
