What Is Recticel Insulation?

Recticel Insulation Boards are high-performing, rigid panels manufactured with polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam.

Recticel Insulation branches out of the Recticel Group, an international industry competitor that leads its products with expertise in PU chemistry (polyurethane). 

The use of PU allows Recticel Insulation Boards to offer outstanding thermal and acoustic insulation properties as well as impressive heat and moisture resistance capabilities.

Recticel Insulation Boards offer excellent thermal conductivities of 0.022 W/mK, rivalling other insulation giants such as Celotex.

What's more, with a compressive strength that exceeds 140 kPA at yield, they excel in practical applications that demand better structural integrity under heavy loads. 

Recticel Insulation Boards also hold a Moisture Vapour Resistance value of 100 MNs/g, meaning they have a high resistance to the passage of moisture vapour. It’s important to acknowledge that the boards aren’t waterproof, excessive water exposure may cause adverse effects on performance.

Environmental Responsibility of Recticel Insulation 

With a growing awareness of corporate carbon footprints, Recticel’s Insulation Solutions has committed to creating products that increase the efficiency of insulation, meaning less energy is needed for heating and cooling. Therefore, CO2 emissions will decrease, significantly contributing to the fight against global warming.

Actively seeking ways to prevent waste during production processes, Recticel reuses or recycles production waste that has reached the end-of-life (EOL) phase.

Recticel Insulation Board Handling and Storage

●      Supplied in polythene shrink wrap for short-term protection

●      Stoor indoors in a dry and cool environment

●      Designed for efficient cutting with a knife or fine-toothed saw

Frequently Asked Recticel Insulation Board Questions

What Areas Of The Home Should Be Insulated?

The key areas you should target when tackling home insulation are the roof, loft and exterior walls. 

Since heat rises, your roof and loft are the biggest heat-loss culprits. And as a third of all heat lost from an uninsulated house leaks out through the walls, wall insulation is also crucial when it comes to preventing heat loss and adding comfort to a living space. 

The aim of thermal insulation is to create a thermal envelope around a building so it uses less energy. It's essentially like wrapping a big scarf around the walls and popping a woolly hat on the roof to keep the warmth in. 

Can Recticel Insulation Boards Improve Acoustic Performance? 

Yes, Recticel insulation boards not only regulate temperature but also contribute to sound insulation, creating a quieter and more peaceful indoor environment.

How Do Recticel Insulation Boards Contribute To Energy Savings? 

Recticel insulation boards have excellent thermal insulation properties, minimising heat transfer and reducing the need for excessive heating or cooling. 

This helps to lower energy consumption and ultimately leads to energy savings.

Is Recticel Insulation Waterproof?

Although Recticel insulation can resist moisture, it is recommended to store it in a dry location prior to use. If feasible, avoid storing the boards at ground level as moisture can accumulate and damage the boards.

What Are The Benefits of Using PIR Insulation? 

PIR insulation gives contractors and homeowners the best combination of affordability, availability and thermal performance in one robust material. 

PIR (a widely-used shorthand term for 'polyisocyanurate') is equipped with a few simple properties that make it an excellent choice for a range of insulation needs; it has a closed-cell structure (and is water-resistant thanks to this), is extremely lightweight, and is also rigid.

In short, PIR insulation board is a tough, durable, lightweight insulating board comprising two high-performance aluminium facings sandwiched between a rigid PIR insulation core.
