Insulating Houses with PUR
Insulating Houses with polyurethanes

Against the backdrop of an impending climate change caused by the increasing greenhouse effect, saving energy is one of today's prime objectives with a view to saving resources and to reducing CO2 emissions. Furthermore legal regulations and ordinances compel us cut down on energy consumption and to improve thermal insulation in buildings. The building and construction industry is the biggest customer for rigid foam as a thermal insulating material. With its high-performance insulating system Baymer® and the Desmodur® products, Covestro supplies raw materials for the manufacture of building materials for cost-efficient construction. Owing to polyurethanes rigid foam's low thermal conductivity, it is possible to save more than half of the average heating energy consumed, particularly in older, poorly insulated buildings.

The particular advantages of insulating panels are unmistakable:

  • high thermal insulating capacity for increased savings in heating energy
  • high compressive strength
  • low weight
  • CFC-free
  • excellent long-term behavior
  • large range of products
  • easy to work with
  • biologically and chemically resistant
  • rot-proof
  • good dimensional stability
  • emission-free and moisture resistant in dry construction
  • good fire safety classification
  • inexpensive material for modernizing buildings 
  • controlled quality

Insulating panels can be used from the basement to the attic.
