The Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt) - German Institute for Construction Technology - in Berlin has given BASF's Styrodur® 3035 CS, Styrodur 4000 CS and Styrodur 5000 CS (XPS: extruded rigid polystyrene foam) technical approval for multiple layers as perimeter insulation in groundwater [no. Z-23.5-223]. As of now, the XPS boards can be used for multiple layers of external insulation for structural components in contact with the ground (perimeter insulation). Previously, only a single layer of XPS in the perimeter insulation was approved.

The approval makes it easier for the construction companies carrying out the work to use the insulating materials and at the same time makes it possible to meet the increasingly stringent energy requirements on new buildings. This means that BASF now has approvals from the DIBt to install multiple layers of Styrodur C for foundation slabs, inverted roofs and perimeter insulation.

Perimeter insulation reduces heat losses at the bottom of a building. Styrodur C is perfect for perimeter insulation because of its high compressive strength and low water absorption due to its closed cell foam structure and foam skin on both sides. Up to three layers of the insulating material can now be used under non-load-bearing foundation slabs and on basement walls at a total thickness of up to 400 millimeters. Styrodur C can be immersed up to a depth of 3.50 meters in groundwater.

In perimeter insulation, the extruder foam boards have to be densely packed and placed to bond. The individual layers should be arranged to cover joints and only boards with a rabbet edge should be used.

Styrodur insulating material
The pressure-resistant, water-repellant and rot-proof Styrodur C has been protecting houses against heat, cold and moisture for over 45 years. It prolongs the life of buildings, increases their value and improves the living climate. The various grades of Styrodur C which contain air as the cell gas differ mainly in their compressive strength.

You can find the full text of the DIBt approval to download together with further information on our homepage at styrodur.de/.
