Foam-Control Insulation for Construction.

In the construction industry, Foam-Control is among the most versatile, energy efficient, and cost effective insulators available, delivering extremely high, stable R-values. Depend on Foam-Control to do the job—practically any job—from the ground up: perimeter foundation and underslab insulation, wall sheathing, EIFS insulation, roof insulation, concrete insulation/void filler, and ICF insulation.

Molded Polystyrene Insulation

Stands up to the elements, yet it’s good for the environment.

Cost effective thermal design is among the highest priorities in construction. Foam-Control insulation products are available in a range of densities necessary to provide energy efficiency, structural integrity, and cost effectiveness. They’re proven to lower energy costs, saving both money and precious resources.

Thermal Performance.

Cost effective thermal design is among the highest priorities in construction.Thermal resistance (R-value) of an insulation assembly is the determining factor in thermal performance. Foam-Control provides optimum cost value when compared to other rigid insulations of the same R-value design.

Strength Characteristics.

Foam-Control insulation products are available in a range of densities necessary to provide both structural integrity and cost effectiveness. Other rigid insulation products fail to provide this design flexibility due to limited density availability, and therefore cost more.

An Architectural Insulation Like No Other

From frost line to roof line.

Foam-Control® PLUS+® is used in a wide range of critical insulation applications: Perimeter, Underslab, Cavity Wall, Wall Sheathing, Precast Concrete Core, Flat/Tapered Roofing, Vegetative Green Roof, Plaza Deck, Drainage Board, and Waterproofing Protection. All of these applications benefit from the exceptional physical properties and wide range of board thicknesses, sizes, and options available with Foam-Control PLUS+.

  • Foam-Control PLUS+ provides more R-value at a lower cost
  • XPS and Polyiso use blowing agents that cause R-value loss over time
  • XPS has shown to take on moisture in building applications where water is present and has a low potential to dry
  • Foam-Control PLUS+ has a superior drying potential
  • Foam-Control PLUS+ is more vapor permeable to help avoid moisture problems
  • Foam-Control PLUS+ available in 15, 25, 40, and 60 psi strengths

Construction Applications

Architectural Shapes

Foam-Control gives you control over the design of your project. You determine the shape and specs of the components you need, then NoArk works with you to custom fabricate your design by hot wire cutting with computer aided design (CAD).

Architectural Shapes

Cavity Wall

Foam-Control is a cost-effective, durable, and energy efficient solution for cavity wall applications. It is an ideal material to stop energy loss in brick faced residential and commercial masonry and framed walls.

Perimeter & Under-Slab

Foam-Control with Perform Guard® is a cost-effective, durable, and energy efficient solution for below grade insulation applications. It is an ideal material to stop energy loss at the foundation or slab. Foam-Control with Perform Guard is a proven material with built in protection against the destructive force of termites.

Foam-Control Perimeter/Underslab

Protection Boards

Foam-Control Protection Boards are economical, light weight and easy to install over foundation walls that have been damp-proofed or water-proofed with coatings/membranes. Installed prior to backfilling, Foam-Control Protection Boards provide impact puncture protection for foundation wall coatings/membranes from rocks and potential construction debris in backfill soil. Protection is also provided against crushed stone/gravel used in many foundation drainage designs. In cold regions, Foam-Control Protection Boards bond-break the soil from the foundation wall and as insulation reduces potential damage of freeze thaw cycling.

Radiant Floor Boards

Foam-Control is a cost-effective, durable, and energy efficient solution for insulation applications. It is an ideal material to stop energy loss. Foam-Control Radiant Floor Boards for use in radiant floor systems are provided in two configurations:

4’ x 4’ boards with 3” on center slots for fast installation of PEX tubing in hydronic radiant systems
4’ x 8’ flat sheets for use in electric radiant systems

Termite Resistant

Insulation helps keep people comfortable. Unfortunately, insulations are susceptible to termite infestation. Foam-Control with Perform Guard is an important component in preventing this problem. It’s made by a process that incorporates a termite resistant additive into the insulation during the manufacturing process. The additive is registered with the Environmental protection Agency (EPA) for this application. Foam-Control with Perform Guard has been thoroughly tested, is safe for handling, and noncorrosive.
