Sika Roofing Systems

Thermal insulation is the key to creating a comfortable environment inside of a building. At the same time, it is also the key to saving energy. Sika provides a wide range of high performance thermal insulation specially designed and manufactured for optimal performance as part of the Sika roofing systems.

GWP and thickness of different insulation materials to provide thermal resistance
yes
Global Warming Potential GWP

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) materials have the lowest Global Warming Potential (GWP) for a given thermal performance, whilst mineral wool based systems have the highest GWP, but they have the advantage of being non-combustible. Polyisocyanurate (PIR) materials have the best thermal performance for a given thickness of insulation.
