EXTRUDED POLYSTYRENE THERMAL insulation BOARDS
Thermal insulation is the method of preventing heat from entering the building (in Hot Climates) or escaping the building (in Cold Climates).
The thermal insulators are referred to materials used to reduce the rate ofheat transfer.
Heat flows naturally from a warmer to a cooler space. In winter, the heat moves directly from all heated living spaces to the outdoors and to adjacent unheated attics, garages, and basements wherever there is a difference in temperature. During the summer, heat moves from outdoors to the house interior. To maintain comfort, the heat lost in winter must be replaced by your heating system and the heat gained in summer must be removed by your air conditioner.
Bitumat BituTHERM is a thermal insulation Extruded Polystyrene material in form of rigid boards, made of polystyrene, (a derivative of petroleum) by using the extrusion method. The boards have a closedcell structure and therefore they are resistant to water and humidity. They have excellent thermal insulation and compressive strength properties.
Bitumat was founded in 1984 but its roots go back to 1975 when the founders became involved in the roofing waterproofing industry as dealer and applicator in Saudi Arabia for a major manufacturer from the U.S.A.
