Why using Aislamax Thermal Insulators?

Man was not able to cover his needs in a satisfactory and profitable way. Hence he continued seeking a type of material that allowed him to insulate and as a result getting a better life quality by saving energy.
AISLAMAX is the solution to end with housing problems and it also grants a 60% energy saving, moreover it improves life quality providing comfort.

Where can Aislamax be used?

This product is suitable for any kind of industry and shop. For example, animal farms, wineries, grain and feed preservation, commercial properties, etc. AISLAMAX is easy to install and handle, it adapts to any type of structure even in existing constructions.

Does it pollute the environment?

AISLAMAX protects human beings because it avoids him/her suffering from extreme temperatures, plus it avoids condensation, moisture and fungi that are harmful for health. AISLAMAX is not attacked by any kind of plague, it is not food for mice, ants or any insects. Nor encourages bacteria or fungi growth. It is important to highlight that it is not habitat for any type of bird.

Can Aislamax be left outdoors?

The material is not suitable to be left constantly outdoors. It cannot be left exposed to the Sun’s rays more than 5 days because it will be affected to the UV rays, once it is set under roof it will not present any kind of inconvenience. 

Which is the life span of Aislamax Thermal Insulators?

The life span is the same as the structure, 40 years old. It does not degrade and keeps its shape and thickness. It does not shed particles over time.

Is it necessary to use Aislamax Thermal Insulators?

Using  thermal insulators reduces the existing heat transfer around a house, granting comfort to the rooms in winter and summer. Achieving a considerable energy saving (power electricity, gas).

What is its reaction to fire?

AISLAMAX products are fireproof, they do not light a fire or they have a low propagation flame. The fire resistance testing was approved by the  National Institute of Industrial Technology whereby was determined that the polyethylene’s combustion drew out only CO₂, heat and water vapor. When burning, it does not produce any TOXIC GAS and avoids the production of droplets. Our products have a RE2 classification (very low propagation flame) and RE2 (low propagation flame)

Is it necessary to place the 2x1in furring strip over the tongue-and-groove roof?

Yes, it is necessary. The furring strip avoids the interstitial condensation which is formed among materials of a traditional roof. The furring strip allows the tongue-and-groove ventilation, it might be seasoned or it might have moisture, plus it allows ascending room moisture  to escape. If AISLAMAX is placed over the tongue-and-groove roof, the wood when trying to ventilate it will find the polyethylene surface, the very same will impede the passing of water vapor producing interstitial condensation and ruining the wood ̍s life span.

What is the difference between Aluminum and aluminized?

The aluminized sheet is a polyester film  (plastic) in a 100% pure aluminum sheet, polished with a 100 microns thickness.  Both materials have low emissivity. The aluminized sheet reflects between 85% up to 90% heat emitted by radiation coming from the metal sheet/tile, meanwhile the aluminum, reflects between 95%-97% of heat. The aluminum acts as a fire retardant of the foam/air-bubble, having a RE2 classification “very low propagation flame”

What is the difference between 1 or 2 sides?

The difference is in its usage. When AISLAMAX is used in a traditional roof, where the foam/air-bubble is set between the tongue-and-groove and metal sheet/tile, it is recommended to use 1 SIDE aluminized or aluminum AISLAMAX. If it is used facing the foam, the same will be affected by the UV rays, loosing its insulation properties and causing foam disintegration  over time.

What is the difference between foam and air-bubble ?

The difference is in the amount of material used for its fabrication, where AISLAMAX FOAM requires more raw material. Both present similar thermal resistance, where it is compared: 0.20  ̎ foam to 0.39 ̎air-bubble and 0.39 ̎ foam to 1.18 ̎ air-bubble. The foam is measured by its thickness (0.20 ̎ and 0.39 ̎) and the air-bubble by its diameter (0.39 ̎ or 1.18 ̎) . AISLAMAX FOAM, is a low density , closed cell structure, where the cell encapsulates the air, while the AISLAMAX AIR-BUBBLE is formed by two low density polyethylene  sheets and encapsulated air-bubbles adhered among them, produced 572°F sealing in only one operation. Both use AIR in different ways, to achieve a low thermal conductivity of the material. AISLAMAX FOAM is presented in 215.28 ft ² (3.28ftx65.62ft) and AISLAMAX AIR-BUBBLE in 161.46ft ² (3.28ftx49.21ft)/ 322.92ft ² (3.28ftx98.43ft)
