See how Halo’s GPS core still surpasses the new Foamular 150 NGX. The NEW and improved XPS still uses more energy and resources than Halo’s Type 1 GPS and creates a foam board product that offers lower long-term thermal resistance.
Halo’s rigid insulation system relies on an advanced graphite foam core that outperforms its leading XPS contenders in efficiency and low emissions. Halo’s products — Interra, Exterra, and Subterra — are each tailored to a specific application.
Discover how Halo is powered by Graphite Polystyrene (GPS) and the benefits of our Neopor core. GPS provides a long-term thermal performance of R5 per nominal inch (1.06″) while offering a minuscule embodied carbon footprint compared to XPS.
The entire US is on track to re-join the Paris Agreement and gradually ban HFCs. XPS is not the only high-performance product on the market, and with high, long-lasting R-values and a 0-HFC content, Halo’s GPS is already a better, cleaner alternative.
Can Foam Board Insulation Be Used Between Studs Instead of Batt Insulation? This application is not typically recommended for the following reasons: Rigid foam board pieces are difficult to fit snugly between studs so you would have to spray foam to fill any gaps. Unlike loose-fill or batt, foam board insulation can’t easily be cut […]
What is the difference between Halo Exterra and ZIP Sheathing? Halo Exterra are rigid foam board insulation panels that feature a graphite polystyrene (GPS) foam core that is laminated on both sides with a layer of perforated polypropylene film. Halo Exterra panels marry a water-resistive barrier (WRB) to continuous exterior insulation, eliminating thermal bridging as […]
See how attention to detail and the right insulation products helped student-builders construct a beautiful (and airtight) home benefiting the YMCA.
Do you worry about exposing foam board insulation to the outdoors? Or leaving it uncovered inside a home?
Read more to explore the perils of exterior and interior exposure, and how 3 common rigid insulation products perform in this regard.
Can I Use Foam Board Insulation With Batt Insulation? Yes, foam board insulation is an excellent complement to batt insulation. Foam board insulation can add insulation and eliminate thermal bridging when used in wall and ceiling assemblies insulated with batts. It can potentially replace the vapor barrier and house wrap as well. Here are four […]
Unless you’re a construction pro, you may be forgiven for thinking that all insulation products are made equal. They’re not. In this post, we discuss the many uses and benefits of foam board insulation: a strikingly handy, high-performance product. Read on to find out more! What Is Foam Board Insulation? Also known as […]
