Owens Corning: FOAMULAR® Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Types 3 & 4

FOAMULAR® Extruded Polystyrene Rigid Insulation offers a combination of characteristics that result in long-term thermal performance of R-5 per inch, a strong compressive strength of 20 PSI and exceptional moisture resistance. Using FOAMULAR® insulation can create comfortable living spaces in basements, as well as minimizing heat loss or gain when using it on above-grade exterior walls and the interior of foundation walls.


The Owens Corning FOAMULAR® CodeBord® Air Barrier System is another innovative solution providing long term energy efficiency performance and comfort for homeowners.  The system helps provide a continuous exterior air, moisture and thermal barrier which minimizes heat loss or gain and provides a comfortable indoor living environment for the occupants.

FOAMULAR® insulation products are made in Canada, are GREENGUARD Gold certified for indoor air quality and SCS certified to contain 20% recycled material.


*Savings vary depending on original amount of insulation in your home, climate, house size, air leaks, and personal energy use and living habits. ^Based on Stats Canada Report CS44-004-IN, April 2013.  †Compared to a non-insulated space.
