The Knauf Effect

10/05/2017

After months of turmoil in the PIR market due to force majeure affecting BASF’s global supply of MDI, TLX clients have been asking what else can we use during these difficult times.

We have tackled this issue head-on and partnered with Knauf Insulation on a project to develop a specialist solution for the pitched roof market, using either Knauf’s Earthwool Rafter Roll or Omni Fit products.

Traditionally pitched roofs have used PIR, but with a solution incorporating TLX Silver and the vital benefit of its core insulation value and heat reflection back across the adjacent air gap, these solutions deliver U-values as low as 0.16, alongside fantastic acoustic performance with minimal space gain.

Two examples of the solutions can be found below:
