Home New Products BASF introduces the latest R-5 insulation technology

BASF introduces Neopor Plus— a construction grade, graphite enhanced polystyrene (GPS) rigid foam insulation — to the North American market. This next-generation product builds upon the Neopor brand, and delivers the highest true R-value performance of R-5 per inch.
“Our customers and the builders, architects and contractors they supply can now benefit from the performance of Neopor Plus GPS rigid foam insulation, growing their businesses as a result,” said Luis Espada, Business Manager, Neopor Insulation North America. “Customers have realized greater energy and cost efficiencies, and can expand their offerings with this latest insulation technology.”
Neopor Plus benefits include:

  • Uses approximately 30 percent less material than other rigid foam insulation to achieve the same R-value
  • 1 percent maximum water absorption by volume
  • Incorporates a new polymeric flame retardant (PolyFR)
  • Earned GREENBGUARD Gold Certification
  • Contributes points towards builder’s LEED® certification

“Neopor Plus demonstrates our commitment to introducing eco-efficient and sustainable thermal insulation products to the North American construction sector, after successful market development in Europe and Asia,” said Giorgio Greening, Senior Vice President of BASF’s global business unit for Styrenic Foams. “This next-generation product reflects the tremendous resources and culture of innovation that have long been BASF hallmarks.”
Neopor Plus is available exclusively through the Neopor® North America Insulation Distribution Network.
About Neopor®
The grey plastic granular material Neopor® is a construction grade, graphite enhanced polystyrene (GPS) insulation. It contains specially embedded graphite particles that reflect heat radiation like a mirror and reduce heat loss in a house. The granular material is foamed by BASF’s partners and converted to insulation boards for facades, roofs and floors. Neopor® insulation materials meet the standards for passive house construction and in warm climatic zones also save at least 30 percent of cooling energy for residential buildings.
