Insulating Lining Paper Graphite+ is a brand new product that utilizes the natural reflectivity of graphite combined with polystyrene cells to create an effective energy saving insulating wallcovering. It has been approved by the Energy Saving Trust due to its thermal efficiency and energy saving properties. The material is treated with a fire retardant.
Made from a 4mm thick layer of BASF expanded polystyrene, infused with graphite particles and laminated to a reinforced backing, Graphite+ delivers 20% better insulation performance than standard Insulating Lining Paper. This is equivalent to having an extra 26cm of concrete on your walls over and above an insulating lining paper.
The special graphite particles act like thousands of mirrors reflecting radiant heat back into the room and thus reducing heat loss and energy bills. Graphite+ is a paste the wall product which makes it easier use. Furthermore the product is extremely effective in disguising uneven and defective wall surfaces.
Upgrade the fire resistance of Insulating Lining Paper Graphite Plus to BS Class 1 by using our new Wallrock Thermal FR Adhesive and overhang with Wallrock Fireliner lining paper.
This product is suitable as a localised ‘problem solver’ for cold external walls and is not recommended for use in fire escape routes inside your home unless the surface is further treated with a fire retardant covering. This product is class E fire rated and should not be used for projects such as new builds and extensions where Building regulations are applicable.
Important Safety Information
Compliance with Building Regulations and Fire Safety: This product should not be used in isolation for projects such as new builds and extensions where Building Regulations are applicable. If used as part of a system that both adds to the insulation value and protects the surface from fire it may be compliant but expert advice should be sought.
Fire resistance can be improved to meet Building Regulations by using in conjunction with the Wallrock Fireliner system, cross lining the surface with Wallrock Fireliner and using Wallrock Fireliner FR Adhesive to apply both products. This improves the performance of the system to a BS Class 1 which satisfies Building Regulations in relation to wallpapers used in Residential Accommodation (including garages).
Fire Safety; When used in isolation this product is suitable as a localised ‘problem solver’ only for cold external walls and is not recommended for use in fire escape routes or on ceilings.
Preparation; Surfaces painted prior to 1960 may contain lead pigments and special precautions should be taken when preparing such surfaces.
