The Many Benefits of Using Blue Board Insulation in California

Blue board insulation is the more common name for extruded polystyrene foam board insulation made by DOW Chemical, which has been a leader in the construction industry for decades. DOW Blue board insulation in California has many benefits over other types of insulation and can be used in myriad applications especially in large buildings that must be kept cool.

Multiple applications

Blue board insulation generally comes in sheets of four x eight feet, and it is available in thicknesses of up to two inches unless special-ordered. It is an extremely versatile material and can be cut to size. One of its most valuable properties is being resistant to moisture, and it also has a high R-Value, which is a scale for measuring the resistance to transfer of air from hot to cool. Basically, the higher the R-Value the better.

This type of insulation is a good choice in any area that could get wet; in fact, it can save the structural integrity of your building in certain situations. It is often used in basements where water could leak up from the foundations, on the exterior of structures beneath building wraps and on the exterior of foundations.

Wherever it is used, it also helps keep the structure warm or cool. If you are considering having blue board, or another type, of insulation installed at your commercial facility, learn more from the competent and friendly team at Hansen Cold Storage Construction at
