Early in 2017, the Insulation Division of Recticel, a major producer of polyurethane (PU) foam, launched a breakthrough technology for producing rigid polyurethane insulation boards with excellent thermal insulation, offering a 13% better insulation performance than existing products. This scientific breakthrough, called Xentro® technology, is commercialised in cavity and floor applications under the product names Eurowall® Xentro® and Eurofloor® Xentro®.
This technology, which addresses the demand for energy-efficient buildings and high-performing insulation materials for the construction market, is a significant breakthrough in the world of PU, and reinforces Recticel’s position as a leader in in high-performance insulation solutions for the construction market. Rigid PU insulation boards with Xentro® technology also enable more freedom in design for both new builds and refurbishment projects.
