Ecotherm insulated plasterboards are designed to be installed within a property to improve thermal conductivity. Ecotherm insulated plasterboards are made up of a fibre-free rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) core with a bilaminate foil / kraft paper facing bonded to one side. The other side of the insulations board is fixed to a 12.5mm plasterboard during the manufacturing process. The boards are manufactured with Zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and Zero Global Warming potential (GWP), free from CFC and HCFC.
Ecotherm Insulated Plasterboard
The boards are available in sizes 1200mm by 2400mm with sizes ranging from 37.5mm to 72.5mm. This is made up of a (PIR) foam board and 12.5mm plasterboard, for example, a 25mm board attached to 12.5mm plasterboard will amount to a 37.5mm insulated plasterboard. This board provides a thermal conductivity of just 0.022W/mK. The boards are lightweight and easy to cut, handle, and install. A fine-toothed saw is recommended to cut insulated plasterboards. A plank of wood or ruler can be a handy tool to create a cutting guide and hold the board in place.

Insulated plasterboards can be applied to the interior walls within a property. The two in one insulated plasterboard insulates and drylines walls in one method which can make the insulation process quicker as plasterboard will not need to be applied to the insulation boards after they are installed. Once the insulated plasterboards have been installed the next step of applying plaster can be applied.
Applications include both new build and upgrading the thermal performance of existing building elements, providing a cost-effective means of reducing CO2 emissions and for compliance with Building Regulations / Standards. This product can be applied with mechanically fixing or dot and dab adhesive dry lining applications. This can be applied to new or existing walls
