Kingspan Kooltherm K112, formerly known as Kingspan Kooltherm K12, is used between studs or as an insulation sheathing in both timber frame and steel frame walls. When installed in constructions Kooltherm K112 offers premium performance with a thermal conductivity as low as 0.018 W/mK.
Kingspan Kooltherm K112 is made up of a rigid phenolic core and is faced on both sides with low emissivity foil to give that low thermal conductivity. This makes this framing board insulation product perfect for new builds and refurbishment projects since it’s easy to install and handle. In a refurbishment project, this wall insulation can bring u-values even lower in areas where you previously might not have thought about insulating.
Resistant to the passage of water vapour, installing Kooltherm K112 as insulation sheathing can be a good idea to ensure other insulation types are kept safe and performing. This is also down to the fact that Kooltherm K112 isn’t affected by air infiltration.
