Morgan Advanced Ceramics Vacupor® PS-B2-S Porextherm
Categories: Ceramic; Oxide; Silicon Oxide

Material Notes: Vacupor® PS-B2-S is a microporous insulation material which has an extremely low thermal conductivity coefficient giving it very good insulating properties. Vacupor® PS-B2-S consists of inorganic oxides. The main constituent is fumed silica. The remaining components are opacifiers which are used to minimise infrared radiation and fiber filaments as reinforcing fillers. Vacupor® PS-B2-S is approved by DIBT under the certification number Z-23.11-1662.The approval is valid for construction applications DAD, DZ, DI, DEO, WAB, WAA, WH, WTR and WI according to standard DIN 4108-10, and prefabricated façade panels with insulated glass character. Vacupor® PS-B2-S corresponds to the material class B2. The examination of fire behaviour according to DIN 4102-1, May 1998, building material B2; test certicate no. H.3-145/07 and H.3-146/07, was issued by the Research Institute for heat protection in Munich. The core material of Vacupor® PS-B2-S is not flammable and classified A1 according to DIN ISO EN 13501-1. Vacupor® PS-B2-S is heat sealed in a multilayer vacuum metallized film. The very low internal pressure and the microporous panel core enable it to reach extremely low thermal conductivity values.

Application: Vacupor® PS-B2-S was specially developed for applications in the building and construction industry where an approval by the building authorities is required. The low density and the specially developed IR opacifiers contained in these grades greatly reduce the thermal conductivity of Vacupor® PS-B2-S Systems. Due to the single or double-sided coverage with polystyrene sheets, Vacupor® PS-B2-S is particularly suitable for surface installation for walls and floor surfaces. The fixing of the insulation is much easier, due to bonding with commercial olystyrene adhesives. Typical Applications: Vacupor® PS-B2-S is used as insulation material in the following applications:

  • Wall and facade insulation
  • Reveal insulation
  • Insulation of basement ceilings
