Benefits of Sustainable Insulation with JACKODUR®

Looking for a 100% recyclable insulation material? Look no further than JACKODUR® range of extruded polystyrene insulation. 

As the world becomes increasingly aware of the need for sustainable building practices, JACKODUR® can help raise the sustainable rating of a building as a fully recyclable high performance insulation material.

Manufactured from extruded polystyrene foam (XPS), the JACKODUR® range is designed for all construction applications, ranging from floor slabs to walls, where insulation is a key requirement. 

Here are just a few of the benefits of insulation with JACKODUR®:

Fully Recyclable

JACKODUR® is made from XPS (extruded polystyrene), which is a 100% recyclable material. Waste and reject of XPS can be recycled and put back into the manufacturing process. JACKODUR® insulation is made from up to 50% recyclable or non-fossil raw materials. It does not contain any harmful chemicals, making it a safe choice for any building development.

Thermal Performance

JACKODUR® offers superb thermal insulation properties from λD=0.027W/(mK). JACKODUR® is available in various thicknesses and edge finishes with a smooth or textured surface. 


JACKODUR® is designed to be long-lasting, ensuring maximum efficiency for decades. Unlike some traditional insulation materials, it does not lose its insulating properties over time. It is load bearing with compressive strengths ranging from 300 to 700kPa, dimensionally stable, resistant to frost/thaw changes and rot-proof. 


Unlike some traditional insulation materials, which can become damaged or lose their insulating properties when exposed to water or moisture, JACKODUR® remains unaffected by water. The XPS close cell structure does not allow water penetration, making it an ideal insulation material for areas that may be prone to moisture, such as basements, bathrooms or other areas that are at risk of water intrusion. Additionally, it helps prevent the growth of mould or mildew, which can be hazardous to human health.

In conclusion, JACKODUR® is an exceptional insulation material that offers a wide range of benefits. Its energy efficiency, durability, recyclability, waterproof characteristic, and cost-effectiveness make it an excellent choice for building professionals who are seeking to reduce the environmental impact while ensuring quality insulation. By choosing JACKODUR®, you can enjoy the benefits of a high-performing insulation material that is also environmentally responsible.
