Reducing heat flow within a building’s thermal envelope reduces energy consumption as well as potential condensation issues. Armatherm™ 500 thermal break material (TIM) significantly reduces energy lost from thermal bridging in building envelope connections.
Armatherm™ 500 structural thermal break material is a high strength, thermoset polyurethane manufactured in several densities which can support loads up to 4,000 psi with R values as high as 3.8 per inch which is superior to the properties of aerated concrete and wood blocking.
Applications using Armatherm™ 500 to reduce heat flow include:
Foundation to wall
Armatherm™ 500 column base insulation blocks
Armatherm™ 500 wall envelope thermal break
