The Frinorm thermal insulation board type E, tried and tested since 1978, today called type ES and EL, has excellent thermal insulation properties. It is available in two different designs: type ES is made of expanded rigid polystyrene foam (EPS), 15 kg/m³, while type EL consists of expanded rigid polystyrene foam with graphite additive (EPS lambda), 20 kg/m³. Both thermal insulation boards are covered with a light-coloured, 5 mm thick cement grey fibre cement board, which is not only water- and impact-resistant, but also non-combustible. The dovetail grooves in the surface of the thermal insulation ensure that the thermal insulation boards adhere to the concrete so that additional fastening material is not required. The appealing, light-coloured cement grey bottom surface can be left untreated or coated with dispersion paint.
