BASF Polyurethanes

In the Green House Project BASF Polyurethanes will be providing WALLTITE® cavity wall insulation to both the existing houses as well as the new extension at the St Ives property. WALLTITE® spray foam insulation is also being applied between the rafters in the loft space at St Neots.

WALLTITE® spray foam insulation is a fast applied seamless, airtight solution for internal walls and roofs. The continuous spray leaves a minimal amount of surface area without insulation resulting in some cases, a 30% decrease in thermal transmission. The result is an airtight, energy efficient building envelope of low permeability which does not the need any supplementary material such as membranes. By virtually eliminating air leakage, WALLTITE® with its closed cell structure helps control the movement of vapour and moisture throughout the building, reducing energy loss in line with Part L.

WALLTITE cavity wall insulation is an injection grade rigid closed cell PU foam that provides all the insulation benefits of WALLTITE® spray foam in terms of airtightness and thermal efficiency. The system is installed to BS 7456:1991 and is a totally inert material containing no fibres, formaldehyde or styrene. Durable and sustainable, WALLTITE® cavity wall insulation provides permanent adhesion over the whole surface area of a wall and overcomes wall tie failure, weak mortar joints and other related structural problems.

Created to aid sustainable refurbishment solutions, WALLTITE® PU spray foam does not deteriorate with age and its thermal properties are therefore maintained over the life of the building. Considering its very low k-value of 0.025 W/mK and its life time durability, WALLTITE® makes a significant contribution to saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions.

WALLTITE® is installed by trained professionals approved by BASF in the UK.
