Foil-Faced Sheathing

POWERFOAM's commodity grade foil-faced sheathing is a highly efficient way to help homeowners and builders affordably meet model energy codes and HUD/FHA R-19 (U=.05) WALL STANDARDS.

Using standard R-13 batts with 2" x 4" framing construction Powerfoam foil-faced sheathing can help you pinpoint the exact R-value you wish to achieve, thus eliminating the need for expensive R-19 glass fiber batts and 2" x 6" framing.

The selection of the most economical thickness of POWERFOAM foil-faced sheathing depends on several factors including exterior finish. This can further reduce construction costs.

Advantages

  • Permanent High R-Value
  • Lightweight and Easy to Install
  • Extremely Cost Effective
  • Used in New Construction as well as Remodeling
  • Environmentally Safe

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

POWERFOAM SHEATHING is designed for vertical installation over the exterior side of the studs using 7/16" head roofing nails 4" on center or 3/4" crown staples 8" on center. Staples should be used with 50 pounds pressure. Fastener should be 2" or, at least 1" longer than thickness of the sheathing.

POWERFOAM SHEATHING is nonstructural and must be coner braced with steel strapping or let-in bracing. (See cut away drawing)

POWERFOAM SHEATHING must be fully protected on the inside of the building by a thermal barrier equivalent. This requirement includes, but is not limited to garages, crawl spaces and basement walls.

Flotation Foam



Powerfoam Floatation Foam is a 1.0 PCF nominal density flame-resistant expanded polystyrene.
Powerfoam's flotation foam has a proven track record of quality and performance throughout the South Central United States.
Attractive and environmentally safe, Powerfoam EPS flotation is the industry standard for any of these projects:

Powerfoam EPS flotation will support 50 pounds per cubic foot when fully immersed in water. To estimate the amount of EPS flotation needed for a specific project, estimate three (3) pounds per board foot of lumber to be used building the dock plus 180 pounds per person on the dock at any given time and divide by 50. This figure is the number of cubic feet of EPS flotation necessary to support the structure and its occupants.
