Thermal Break Materials

Armatherm is considered one of the top manufacturers of thermal break materials within the building sector. Our objective is to give contractors, architects, and engineers the information and tools they need to properly address thermal bridging. Building envelope energy loss has been shown to be significantly influenced by thermal bridging. Low thermal conductivity, high strength, and engineered and tested to carry the loads and prevent thermal bridging are all characteristics of Armatherm thermal break materials.
