PlastiSpan® 60 Insulation
High compressive resistance for geotechnical applications

PlastiSpan® 60 Insulation is used in Roadways, Sidewalks and Utilities.


PlastiSpan 60 insulation high compressive resistance is ideal for use in
applications where heavy loads are expected such as low temperature
freezer floor or highway construction.

PlastiSpan 60
insulation compressive resistance at 1% strain resists
compressive creep under specified on the long term.

Main Applications:


• Reduce frost heaves on roadways, sidewalks, utilities
• Insulation for utilities (sewer & water)
• Structural slab applications

Benefits:

• 60 psi compressive resistance
• No thermal drift
• Less than 2% water absorption
