Kingspan expands portfolio

Leading manufacturer Kingspan Insulation has begun manufacturing its thermaroof brand TR22 at its facility in Dubai, thus enhancing its portfolio of construction and mechanical engineering insulation ranges.

Kingspan Thermaroof TR22 is a high compressive strength insulation cover board that can be used in overlaying new and existing flat roofs waterproofed with single-ply and cold liquid-applied waterproofing. It is available in a thickness of 20 mm, and features a fibre-free insulation core, enabling it to achieve a thermal conductivity as low as 0.028 W/m K.

Sarmad Fahkri, the managing director, said production of TR22 in the UAE is essential to the market, as the insulation is ideal for new-build and refurbishment of flat roofs in the country.
