AUSTHANE PIR 45 is suitable for  insulating applications in hot or cold environments, with ‘contact side’ temperatures ranging from  - 50 °C  to  + 130 °C.

foam has better Fire Resistance properties than standard flame-retarded polyurethane foams.

foam achieved a GROUP 1 Classification in accordance with Specification A2.4 of the Building Code of Australia when tested under the AS/NZS 3837 Standard. [CSIRO Test Report FNK 10180-July 2011 - a pdf document is available.].

is formulated using
ecomate®  an “environmentally friendly” blowing agent with Zero ODP and Zero GWP.
The use of
ecomate® Blowing Agent results in the foam having excellent Thermal Insulation properties. The Thermal Conductivity k factor is 0.0215 W/m.K at 23.1 °C. [AWTA Test Report 187912 - 5 July 2011].

AWTA Thermal Insulation Test Report
Polyisocyanurate foams, referred to as PIR, is essentially modified polyurethane (PU) foam. Two advantages of PIR foam are improved fire-resistance and excellent insulation properties.
The proportion of MDI is higher than for PUR. As a result the MDI will also react with itself, producing strong chains of isocyanurate. These chains are stronger than normal bonds in polyurethane and results in a chemically and thermally more stable foam.
* Note 1:     The product is available in any required thickness from 15 mm to > 300 mm as required.
* Note 2 :    The relationship of  R value to Sheet Thickness is linear  in practical terms of the application and use for the recommended Exposure Temperatures for the product.
Australian Urethane Systems manufactures AUSTHANE PIR45 Rigid Cellular Polyisocyanurate foam product using a unique foam formulation developed by our technical staff.
The AUSTHANE PIR45 product is a unique product to the Australian and New Zealand Insulation Industry. It is the only polyisocyanurate foam product to have a GROUP 1 Classification under Specification A2.4 of the Australian Building Code of Australia.
