Incredibly fast to install and with no waste, it is just as suitable for new build as it is for improving the thermal performance of existing buildings.
Platinum Ecobead is a truly modern method of construction. In new build construction you can build both leaves of a cavity wall right up to the roofline, with no stopping and starting to install the insulant. The insulating bead can be injected at any subsequent stage, speeding construction programmes and reducing costs.
The EPS beads are injected into the wall with a specially designed adhesive and bond together forming a solid mass inside the cavity. The unique flow of bead coupled with its lightness enables the insulant to conform precisely to every fissure of the block and brickwork, producing a complete fill every time.
The beads spherical structure creates tiny air pockets in the insulant once the adhesive has dried. Every bead has a single point of contact with each of the surrounding beads, allowing the cavity to breathe and any moisture penetrating the outer leaf to drain away immediately.
Platinum EcoBead is unaffected by flood water ingress where water is free from harmful contaminants. Please contact our technical department for further information.
Ecobead is available in original white EPS or as Platinum, to provide even higher insulation values.
Platinum EcoBead is an EPS bead which incorporates a graphite component called Neopor®, manufactured by BASF, to provide significantly improved thermal insulation performance, for example, to achieve higher levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes or just to improve BER ratings.
