EPS Roof Insulation

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)

ACH Foam Technologies has been producing quality EPS roof insulation for more than 30 years. ACH Foam Technologies' EPS Roof Insulation is reliable, cost-effective and compatible with major roofing materials and systems.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) stands the test of time, and EPS roof insulation is a proven performer in roofing applications. Field studies of expanded polystyrene (EPS) roof installations that are 20 to 25 years old and older show that EPS roof insulation performs well in roof applications.

Foam-Control® PLUS+® Roof Insulation

Foam-Control® PLUS+® is an architectural insulation product line with high compressive strength, stable R-value, and superior moisture resistance. Foam-Control® PLUS+® is a premium grade insulation manufactured to provide architects, specifiers, distributors, and contractors all the features and benefits inherent in a high quality architectural insulation.

  • High compressive strength of 15, 25, 40 or 60 psi
  • High R-value that never changes and is stable over time
  • Closed cell insulation with superior moisture resistance
  • High drying potential to rapidly release absorbed moisture
  • Meets code requirements for direct-to-deck
  • No thermal barrier required (see ICC-ES ESR-1006 and UL ER11812-01)

Foam-Control® PLUS+® Outperforms XPS and Polyiso
  • Foam-Control® PLUS+® provides more R-value at a lower cost
  • XPS and Polyiso use blowing agents that cause R-value loss over time
  • Polyiso loses R-value during cold and extreme high temperature exposure
  • Foam-Control® PLUS+® available in 15, 25, 40, and 60 psi strengths at a lower cost
  • Foam-Control® PLUS+® has a superior drying potential
  • Foam-Control® PLUS+® is more vapor permeable to help avoid moisture problems

Types of EPS Roof Insulation

Foam-Control® PLUS+® & Foam-Control® EPS Roof Insulation

Foam-Control® PLUS+® and Foam-Control® Roof Insulation are recognized for use in direct-to-deck applications.  UL Evaluation Report ER11812-01 and UL Roof Deck Construction No. 458 recognize Foam-Control® PLUS+® 150 up to 6.7" and Foam‑Control® 100 up to 10” being installed directly over steel roof decks along with a Class A, B or C roof covering of 80 mils or less.

ICC-ES Evaluation Report ESR-1006 recognizes Foam-Control® PLUS+® 150 up to 6" and Foam-Control® 100 up to 9” to be applied directly over steel roof decks along with a Class A, B or C roof covering of 45 mils or less.

Manufacturing procedures for roof insulation that are identified in quality control manuals include: material tracing, in-plant testing of product, random sampling of product by outside independent laboratories and labeling of finished product for in-field identification.

ACH Foam Technologies’ quality assurance program is the most comprehensive in the expanded polystyrene (EPS) roof insulation industry. It allows for complete code compliance, certification to critical physical properties and roof listings from UL, FM and others.

ACH Foam Technologies' EPS roof insulation is recyclable and environmentally friendly. It contains no CFCs, HFCs, HCFCs or formaldehyde, and it comes with a 50-year thermal warranty.
