Insulation of the cellar - reliably protect the underworld from the cold

Features foam

The main parameters of the material are the following characteristics:

  • low values ​​of heat conductivity (0,037-0,041 W / mK).For example, the wall insulation cellar in the central district requires a foam thickness of 0.12 m .;
  • by the structure material, it behaves stably in a wide temperature range.The lower threshold temperature is -180 ° C;
  • high levels of resistance to chemical and biological materials such as oil, sea water, salt, water-soluble dyes, bitumen, and other alkali;
  • high levels of resistance to the diffusion of water vapor (moisture absorption just 0.5-1.5% of the total).The foam does not dissolve or swell in water;
  • material has 100% resistance to rot is not suitable as a nutrient medium for fungi, food for animals and microorganisms;
  • perfect sound insulator;
  • is lightweight and easy to process and assemble.

Due to the above indicators foam insulation may completely inside the cellar, that is, the walls, ceiling and floor.Thermal insulation foam cellar with "wet

" facade comprises treating plaster.

Due to the characteristics of the foam can sheathe:

  • building exterior;
  • walls (in the construction of buildings, insulation);
  • inside the building;
  • floor and ceiling.

How to protect the foam?

The only drawback of the material is that it is, like a mouse.In order to avoid the damaging effects of rodents on the foam, it should cover up with a solution.Warming of the floor of the basement, and of any other gender, the organization suggests concrete screed under the insulation, as rodents can dig a hole and get to the material.

foam is sensitive to direct sunlight, so do not leave it open on the sunny side of the building.Otherwise, it will eventually be destroyed.

Important!To protect the material from the bark, it must be covered with a layer of putty.

Due to its characteristics and parameters of low heat output, so good insulation to protect your home from the cold, but also significantly reduce heating costs.It is necessary to invest once in the house warming means that for many years to save on energy consumption.

Features mounting

Before the start of the basement insulation foam, it is necessary to find out how thick the material is needed.Generally, the foam sheets may acquire a thickness of 2 to 10 centimeters.Sometimes the thickness and more, but it is used much less frequently.

material and also has a different density and weight.In construction density foam typically use 15 to 35 kilograms per cubic meter.Insulation of basement ceiling - this is the most common type of work to ensure heat saving in the cellar.

Important!The ceiling is insulated with exactly the same manner as the walls.

Many experts do not recommend the use of foam as insulation for houses, but it argued that this material is ideal for garages, basements, storage rooms, as well as devices in hardwood floors between the floors as a good sound insulator.
