Meet Benchmark Foam’s R-10 Minimum R-Value EPS Insulation

R-10 EPS foam insulation for in floor heatFor years, customers have relied on Benchmark Foam for high density, high performance expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation for underneath hydronic-heated slabs. Within the last four years, more than 11 million square feet has been installed.

In most cases, a contractor or property owner specifies the compressive strength, R-Value and insulation thickness of the EPS insulation required for each job. Increasingly, local codes are requiring a minimum R-Value of 10 for insulating under hydronic, or radiant heat systems. Benchmark Foam has different options available for projects that require an R-Value of 10:

2½” Thermo-Snap™ – 16 psi

2½” x 4’ x 8’ – 15 psi

2.3” Thermo-Snap™ – 25 psi

2.3” x 4’ x 8’ – 25 psi

R-10 requires a slightly thicker EPS insulation, so make sure to plan for that thickness to ensure adequate slab thickness. The added thickness of the insulation significantly enhances strength and durability during installation.
