Kooltherm K8 Cavity Board achieves CodeMark certification

Kooltherm® K8 Cavity Board, a high-performance rigid thermoset wall insulation produced by Kingspan Insulation, is the latest Kingspan product to achieve full CodeMark certification.

This certification is not only great news for builders and specifiers, whose compliance-related tasks are simplified by using a CodeMark-assured product, but it also represents peace of mind for building owners and users who seek maximum thermal efficiency and comfort.

Kooltherm® K8 Cavity Board is made with a fibre-free insulation core, is CFC/HCFC-free, and is compliant with the insulation standard AS/NZS 4859.1.

Kooltherm K8 insulation in cavity wallAvailable in thicknesses of 25 mm or 40 mm depending on applications, Kooltherm® K8 Cavity Board is ideal for installation in double brick cavity walls or brick/block cavity walls.

Heat transference levels, as measured by R-values, are greatly reduced, as one might expect from a premium insulation board, but Kingspan has gone a step further to create a product that will deliver long-term reliable performance. As a rigid thermoset insulation product, Kooltherm® K8 Cavity Board maintains its integrity – no sagging or compression over time, as can occur with alternative soft insulation products – while maintaining a clear cavity to resist moisture penetration.

The insulation core is sandwiched between layers of low-emissivity foil, which enhances overall performance and strengthens thermal resistance of any adjacent cavity.

The CodeMark certification scheme is the premier compliance assurance scheme pertaining to building products used in Australia.

Managed by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB), CodeMark offers the ultimate endorsement of a product’s quality, appropriateness to Australian conditions, and compliance with all relevant Standards.
