Recticel Eurothane Insulation Board
Recticel Eurothane Insulation Boards are sheets of compact material with insulation properties, which can be added to your roof, loft, walls, ceilings, and floor to help improve the energy efficiency and thermal insulation of your property which can help save money on your energy bills.
The foam core has a layer of low-emissivity aluminum foil on both sides which provides extra stability and strength. Recticel insulation board is a closed-cell board free from CFC and HCFC which gives great performance whilst posing no threat to the environment. It is efficiently produced using a unique blend of blowing agents with zero ozone depletion potential (zero ODP) and low global warming potential. It certainly helps in reducing the excessive and unnecessary usage of energy and resources. It is designed to eliminate thermal bridges for a lending excellent performance.
- This product can be installed by directly bonding (dot and dab) as well as and other fixed installation techniques.
- Can be used to improve the standards of the current building regulations.
- Keeps energy bills low long term and maximises savings.
- Can be a great product when refurbishing or for new build projects.
- Can be used in bigger buildings
Recticel Insulation Boards are a lightweight yet sturdy boards that can be cut to size using a knife or fine-toothed saw. This makes handling, delivering, and installing Recticel Insulation Boards simple and easy.

Recticel Insulation Boards Installation Guide
Before you begin:
- Lay, level, and compact the hardcore before applying sand blinding.
- This base should be level to within 5mm along any 3m straight edge.
- Pre-cast systems or block & beam floors should be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Pour and compact the concrete slab in the normal manner.
Sand blinding may be required to ensure the base is level.
Allow the concrete slab to dry fully before continuing – the standard rate is one day for every millimeter of floor slab.
To ensure the base is level, a thin layer of leveling screed or grout may be required.
Lay the damp proof membrane (DPM), minimum 1200 gauge / 300-micron polythene sheet or a radon barrier (where required), on the concrete with suitably lapped and taped joints.
Extend the damp proof membrane to connect with or form the damp proof course (DPC).
Install the Recticel Insulation boards and lay them so the boards are in a tightly butted brick bond pattern. If the desired insulation thickness requires two layers, board joints should be offset, ensuring that joints between insulation layers do not coincide and the thickest layer should be positioned outermost.
Cut Eurothane GP into strips of 25mm to be fitted vertically around the perimeter to prevent cold bridging.
The top of the cut insulation perimeter strip should be level with the top of the floor slab and the bottom level with that of the horizontal floor insulation.
Overlay the Eurothane® GP with a minimum 500 gauge / 125 micron polythene sheet to act as a vapour control layer (VCL) and a separating layer to prevent the wet concrete from seeping between board joints. It also protects the insulation boards from the concrete. Laps should be 150mm minimum with taped joints.
For underfloor heating: lay the pipes and clip to the Eurothane® GP through the VCL, in accordance with the heating system design and supplier’s instructions. Lay and thoroughly compact the sand/cement screed. The minimum thickness to prevent cracking is 65mm for domestic applications and 75mm for others. Thinner liquid screeds are also available, but guidance and confirmation on suitability must be sought from the screed manufacturer
