The mandatory requirement for the thermal efficiency of buildings, is set out in “The Building Regulations Approved Documents”- Part L for England and Wales, Part F in Northern Ireland and in Section 6 of the SBSA Technical Handbooks for Scotland. To help ensure that the requirements of these documents are met.
Sika-Trocal’s range of insulation encompasses products suitable for use in adhered, mechanically fastened and loose laid ballasted applications that have been rigorously tested to establish thermal performance and fire performance, to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. Also unlike some other manufacturers Sika test for wind uplift too, which is critical in adhered applications.
Sika-Trocal can offer INNOfix a foil faced insulation board for mechanically fastened systems and INNObond a mineral faced insulation board for adhered systems. Both INNOfix and INNObond are a high performance rigid thermoset polyisocyanurate (PIR), manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP). INNOfix and INNObond are both available as flat or tapered variants. Sika-Trocal can also provide enhanced acoustic and fire performance solutions with mineral fibre insulation and specialist sound reducing products.
Sika Limited's unique Sika-Trocal Branded Product Supply Agreement, with the one of the industry's major thermal insulation manufacturers, ensures that specifying Sika-Trocal’s insulation can be done with confidence. Sika-Trocal also provides technical advice for U values, condensation risk and tapered scheme design, which takes the worry out of getting the insulation solution for the project right. Furthermore the products are covered by the Sika-Trocal guarantee, which eliminates the risk of ‘split’ liability between the waterproofing manufacturer and the thermal insulation manufacturer.
Innobond is a rigid instulation board, faced on both sides with a wet lay coated glass fibre tissue, autohesively bonded to the insulation core during the manufacturing process. The core of Innobond is a high performance CFC /HCFC – free rigid urethane insulant with a typical density of 32 kg/m3.
