SlabShield insulation was designed specifically for use under concrete slabs and gives you a vapour barrier and significant thermal performance in one user friendly product.
The product has a layer of closed cell polyethylene foam applied to both sides of its reflective core. The closed cell foam works as thermal break, vapour barrier and protects the aluminium from the chemical reaction that occurs with uncured concrete.
All you need to apply SlabShield is a razor knife and tape (Tape is necessary for a complete vapor barrier to be achieved). Simply roll the product to the desired length and cut. Compare that to working with 4' x 8' insulation boards and you'll soon see the time savings of working with SlabShield.
Another difference between SlabShield and the foam boards is its ability to mold itself to the contours of your grade. SlabShield is flexible enough to adjust to the high and low areas helping to create a stronger finished concrete pour.
SlabShield will not crack or crumble when faced with the normal abuses the job site throws at it.
Low-E® SlabShield is 11mm thick* (Foam Facing/ Foil Core/Foam Facing) and has an interlocking tab to joint rolls together.
