Company OverviewThe only vertically-integrated EPS company in North America
Plasti-Fab EPS Product Solutions
Recognized as a leader in the North American EPS industry, Plasti-Fab is committed to continuously developing new products and applications and using our technical expertise to assist customers in making the right product choice for their applications.
Plasti-Fab’s mission is to provide its customers with expanded polystyrene (EPS) product solutions used as components in energy efficient buildings, flotation for marine construction, lightweight fill and compressible fill for geotechnical construction projects, and component solutions for Original Equipment Manufacturers.
Plasti-Fab EPS insulation provides excellent insulating qualities enabling cost-effective solutions that reduce energy consumption used in heating and cooling of buildings. Plasti-Fab EPS insulation is an integral component for many LEED® certified buildings; Net Zero Energy, Active and Passive homes. Plasti-Fab operates nine EPS manufacturing facilities strategically located across North America that produce EPS insulation and Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs).
The only vertically-integrated EPS company in
Plasti-Fab manufactures a wide variety of EPS product solutions that can be selected for construction, geotechnical and specialty applications.
PlastiSpan® insulation is a moulded expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation that meets all building code requirements with an R-value of 3.75/inch. The closed cell insulation is resistant to moisture, easy to use and install. PlastiSpan insulation is used in exterior sheathing, roof insulation, interior basement walls, and Exterior Insulating Finish Systems. PlastiSpan insulation is also available in higher compressive resistant such as 25, 30, 40 & 60 psi for those application requiring greater compressive resistance.
DuroFoam® Insulation is a closed cell and moisture resistant insulation with a green film laminated to one side, and a silver film on the other side. It is easy to install and can be used in many applications; exterior sheathing, continuous insulation, basement floor, under slab insulation and cathedral ceilings. It has an R-value of 3.75/inch for the life of the product. The addition of the laminated film to the top and bottom surfaces of DuroFoam insulation board provides a more durable product that is less susceptible to damage.
EnerSpan® Insulation is a moulded expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation with a silver- gray colour. The insulation boards are manufactured using Neopor® provided by BASF, a graphite-enhanced raw material that reduces radiation heat transfer resulting in a higher R-valueof R 4.7/inch insulation. It can be used in exterior insulating sheathing, foundation insulation, under slab insulation, and roof applications.
DuroSpan® GPS Insulation is EnerSpan insulation with a laminated film on both sides. It provides the higher R-value of 4.7/inchand the laminated film increases the durability and ease of handling. With a permanent R-value, DuroSpan GPS is code compliant, is part of an air barrier system, has low GWP, and is Green Guard GOLD certified. The product is available in standard thicknesses that provide R-values of R-5, R-7.5 and R-10, and is manufactured in 8’, 9, and 10’ lengths to meet customer project goals.
In addition to the rigid foam product lines, geotechnical and building system solutions, Plasti-Fab manufactures a product called Radon Guard™ Insulation for under slab. Radon Guard is a key component of a Radon mitigation system. Radon Guard insulation panels installed under a concrete slab allow for the collection of radon gas within the sub-slab space so that it can then be exhausted through a radon mitigation system rather than entering the building. Radon Guard insulation is the code compliant one-to-one replacement for a 100 mm thick layer of granular material, the prescriptive solution required by building codes.
GeoSpan® Compressible Fill Material is an expanded polystyrene product designed to act as a compressible medium between swelling soils and structural elements. GeoSpan compressible fill material is used to reduce the forces that would be induced on structures by soil movement, thus reducing the likelihood of damage to the structure above.
Plasti-Fab is the manufacturer of the Advantage ICF System®, an insulating concrete forming (ICF) system for above and below grade walls. Available in both 6” and 8” product lines, the Advantage ICF System consists of two layers of expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation connected with web connectors molded into the EPS insulation. The top and bottom edges of Advantage ICF System blocks have pre-formed interlocking mechanisms which ensure web connectors align vertically for attachment of surface finish materials. ICFs provide superior effective thermal resistance (RSI/R-value) and reduced air leakage on all types of residential, commercial and institutional projects.
The Insulspan Structural Insulating Panel (SIP) system consists of performance rated oriented strand board (OSB) structurally laminated to a core of insulation. Insulspan SIPs provides building owners with a proven method of constructing walls and roofs resulting in real energy cost savings while adding resale value to the building. Insulspan SIPs use closed-cell rigid EPS insulation cores which helps reduce air leakage and thermal bridging by providing a continuous layer of thermal insulation in both wall and roof assemblies.
