What is Recticel PIR Insulation?
Recticel can be used by professionals including builders, architects, and can even be used for people doing DIY in their homes. We advise that you consult a builder or professional before using any insulation products to ensure your safety. The products are eco-friendly with zero Ozone Depletion Potential and a Global Warming Potential that is lesser than 5.
Recticel provides top-grade insulation using PIR Rigid Foam with multiple layers of aluminum foil. It is a durable product and should last as long as the building does when installed correctly. Recticel has an excellent thermal performance by keeping its thermal conductivity as low as 0.022 W/mK and is moisture resistant.
Recticel’s Insulations applications include flat roofs, pitched roofs, floors, walls, and other areas of the properties. The wide range of products means that Recticel can be applied to almost every area of the home or building. Their selection of thin products means you are able to keep the space in the room while provides great quality insulation.
The lightweight products mean that delivering, handling, cutting, and installing can be an easy process.

Eurothane GP are general multi-purpose boards suitable for all insulation needs including floor, pitched roof or wall insulation. EUROTHANE GP is a high-performance insulation and has good thermal properties of 0.022 W/mK.
Eurothane PL is typically used for pitched roof and internal wall insulation. This PIR insulated plasterboard is extremely popular due to its durability and low environmental impact. This has a low thermal conductivity of 0.022 W/mK
EUROTHANE EURO DECK
EUROTHANE Euro deck is rigid PIR (polyisocyanurate) foam faced on both sides with closed cells. This product can be under mechanically fixed single-ply membranes, for new build or refurbishment projects. Due to the multiple layers of foil, it has an extremely low thermal conductivity of 0.022 W/mK.
RECTICEL IP PIR
IP PIR 022 is a panel of insulation with a core of rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam. Gas diffusion-tight multi-layered complex is applied on both sides of the panel. It has a very low thermal conductivity of 0.022 W/mK.
VACUUM INSULATION PANELS (VIP)
Vacuum insulation panel is also known as VIP is a brand-new type of insulation material manufactured to meet high thermal requirements. This is made by wrapping a rigid fumed silica core with a high barrier envelope to gain such high performance. They are ultra-thin and space and cost-effective.
Before using Recticel:
Make sure you have consulted a building professional and follow the insulation instructions provided.
Research and make sure you choose the correct type of insulation for your product.
Always handle carefully to avoid damage.
Always ensure boards are fitted properly and butted together to achieve the best quality of insulation.
Always store insulation in a dry place on a flat surface in weatherproof conditions, so the boards do not get damaged. If you do get an insulation board slightly wet, wipe dry and only install once it is completely dry.
Measure and cut accurately using a fine-toothed saw or sharp knife.
Always check you are using the correct adhesive and that it is compatible with the insulation product you are using.
Cover boards before leaving the property.
