AlphaCore Pad – A New Dimension in Rainscreen Insulation

Kingspan Insulation has launched AlphaCore Pad, an A2-s1,d0 rated rainscreen insulation board with a hydrophobic core which achieves a thermal conductivity of just 0.020 W/mK.

Suitable for use behind rainscreen facades on all buildings, regardless of building type, height, construction and location – AlphaCore Pad can provide a thinner alternative to conventional Euroclass A and A2-s1,d0 rated insulation products. This opens up new design freedom for architects, often allowing additional internal space to be realised within a given footprint. At the same time, its excellent thermal performance supports the creation of buildings that are both energy efficient and comfortable to live and work in.

AlphaCore Pad features a monolithicmicroporous silica core which is sewn into glass fibre fabric. This innovative, hydrophobic core delivers enhanced resilience in this challenging application.

The product’s Euroclass A2-s1,d0 rating has been rigorously assessed under Assessment and Verification of Constancy of Performance (AVCP) System 1 for EN 13501-1 Reaction to Fire. The insulation boards are manufactured to the highest standards under a management system certified to ISO 9001: 2015 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001: 2015 (Environmental Management System), ISO 45001: 2018 (Occupational Health & Safety Management System) and ISO 50001: 2018 (Energy Management System).

AlphaCore Pad is also backed by leading technical support at every stage from initial specification through to installation. Kingspan Insulation’s experienced Product Technicians can provide site teams with dedicated Toolbox Talk training sessions. These cover all aspects of site work with the product, from handling and storage through to installation and detailing.
