Kingspan K106 90mm is an insulation material manufactured with a phenolic core. The K106 Cavity wall insulation board has a thermoset fibre-free rigid phenolic core. The K106 board has a low emissivity composite foil facing on one side. In addition, the K106 board has a polypropylene fleece bonded the other side. As well as the 90mm board, the Kingspan K106 range offers a 115mm cavity wall board.
Sustainability – The K106 cavity wall board will help by reducing the heat levels lost through the building. This will reduce the contribution to global warming and in conclusion, have positive effects on climate change. Moreover, the lack of heat loss can save money on energy bills up to 30%.
Thermal – K106 has a thermal conductivity of just 0.019W/mK. The thermal conductivity means less heat will pass through the insulation boards. As a result, this will keel internal temperature level. The thermal properties of the K106 90mm will also prevent heat and energy escaping the building and because of this the building will be a much more comfortable space.
Storage – Stack the insulated plasterboards on a flat surface, within a cool and dry environment. If left outside, cover the boards with weatherproofing materials. Do not apply pressure to the boards. This includes walking on the boards to avoid damage. If applying excess weight to the boards, as a result they can crumble internally, and the thermal quality of the board will be affected.

Kingspan K106 Applictions
K106 90mm boards are rectangular in shape. These boards are designed for easy installation. The K106 are for full-fill cavity wall insulation applications.
The 90mm is a board designed for a specific application and most importantly, the K106 boards need to be installed whilst the walls are being built. The multi-purpose boards are designed for commercial, residential, and industrial buildings as well as new builds and refurbs. In addition, K106 can help to meet building regulations.
The boards are extremely durable and last lasting. In addition, the 90mm Cavity wall board will last for as long as the building does. The product performance will not reduce over time. Therefore, the Kingspan K106 90mm is a well-used product within the construction industry. Moreover, the thinner nature of the 90mm board means this board is great for improving thermal quality whilst keep as much space as possible.
How to Install K106 90mm Cavity Wall Boards
Cut K106 cavity boards using a fine-toothed saw or a sharp knife. Use the sharp knife by scoring and snapping the boards and scoring the other side.
Always consult a building / construction professional before insulation your property because this can be a costly and time effective mistake. Ensure the walls are free from condensation and mould before insulating. Please note this is a guide only.
Firstly, install wall ties in the inner leaf at 600mm horizontal centres.
For suspended timber floors, wall ties start a minimum of 150mm below the top surface of the ground floor perimeter insulation upstand or 200mm for suspended timber floors. Place the wall ties 900mm apart. Continue to construct the inner leaf up to the next wall tie course. (450mm above the previous inner leaf). After that, position the next course of wall ties at regular horizontal centres. Position extra wall ties at jambs for all openings. The next course of blockwork will secure the ties.
Remove excess mortar and mortar droppings as you go. Clean from exposed edges of the installed insulation boards.
Secondly, the first row of insulation boards should be installed between the two rows of wall ties (fleece must face outwards to cavity). Ensure each insulation board is retained tight against the inner leaf and most importantly, joints are butted.
After that, secure each board at a minimum of three points. Additional ties may also be required to satisfy structural requirements or to ensure adequate retention of the boards or cut pieces.
The next course of wall ties is positioned at the usual 900 mm horizontal centres. The next course of blockwork is installed to secure the ties.
Thirdly, apply a self-adhesive breathable tape to all horizontal and vertical joints, board edges and abutting junction interfaces.
These surfaces should be clean, dry and free from grease, dust, and dirt prior to application.
Fourthly, build the outer leaf to the level of the top of the boards. After that, repeat the process. (Cavity of 10mm or less). See the installation video here –
