1. Includes core weight.

2. Sample modified as required to meet applicable test method.

3. XPS foam core values meet ASTM C578 TYPE IV.

4. k means the apparent thermal conductivity. The lower the value, the greater the insulation power.

5. Values at yield or 10% deflection, whichever occurs first.

6. Data ranges from 0.00 to value shown due to the level of precision of the test method.

7. Water vapor permeance decreases as thickness increases.

8. These laboratory tests are not intended to describe the hazard presented by this material under actual fire conditions.

9. Fire performance of FOAMULAR® 4" thick product only. Thicker products may have different fire performance characteristics. Due to limits on the equipment used to test per ASTM E84, Owens Corning® FOAMULAR® XPS Fabrication Billets have not been tested.
