$109.40

1 box contains a total of 5 EXi 2.5 Panels covering 40 sq.ft.

Engineered Features

R-10 Continuous Insulation

At 2½-in thickness, the EX 2.5’s closed-cell, injection-molded EPS foam body achieves R-10 insulation.

EPS is a non-toxic, inert insulation that maintains its R-value throughout the life of your building. Because it does not absorb moisture like open-cell types of bead board, it is rated highly for below-grade applications like basements. The EPS body has a fire-retardant material and serves as a Class III vapor barrier.

Strong Mold-Resistant Studs

Each panel is co-molded with three high-strength polypropylene studs that align every 16-in O.C. The anterior surfaces are fully embedded by a ½-in of insulation while the posterior surfaces feature ribbed dovetails for adhesive applications against interior concrete, stone, metal or brick walls.

They provide a straight surface that can support drywall attachment and exterior finishes as well as adornments like cabinets and TVs. They are not prone to moisture damage, and do not conduct heat along a wall system.

Self-Leveling Tongue-and-Groove Interlocks

Four tightly interlocking edges along each panel form a continuous, self-flashing seal. Unlike traditional flashing tapes, the interlock create a resilient seal that will not change shape, dry or crack over time. The interlocks eliminate the potential for mistaken thermal leaks and prevent water from reaching the face.  A notched alignment system ensures the panels and studs stay aligned during installation even when cut. Inset lines demarcate the location of wiring chases.

Moisture Control

Built into the back of the EXi panel is a network of shingle-style capillary channels. The channels are specifically-sized cavities that moderate wall pressure so that both interior and exterior wall assemblies can drain and be allowed to remain dry. The EPS foam features a permeability that ensures moisture is not trapped in walls and, with help from the channels, will “breathe” through to be handled by any standard HVAC system.I

Electrical Raceways

Electrical raceways run vertically at 16 inches on center and horizontally at 24 inches on center.

This grid provides easy access to pull wiring to any location. Located at code-approved depth, the chases also provide the necessary separation from the drywall face to protect the wiring.

Double Thermal Disconnect

  • Uninterrupted continuous insulation (CI)
    • InSoFast goes beyond just “CI”. The fastener that attaches the panel is recessed a ½” reducing thermal shorts to near zero.
    • Fastening the cladding does not penetrate the water resistant barrier keeping your building secure and dry.
  • EXi 2.5 panel continuous insulation is the best choice for continuous-continuous insulation.

Estimating Panels

Estimating and ordering is simple measure the square feet of floor, wall, or ceiling surface that the project requires to complete the job. Divide the total square  footage (xx) by 40 sq-ft. this will determine the number of  boxes required for your project, (round up to the whole box count).  Don’t overestimate.

    • One (EXi 2.5 Insulated Panel = (8 sq-ft)
    • One box of  5 (Insulated Panels = (40 sq-ft.)
Estimating Adhesive

Estimating Adhesive Quantity

Estimating the amount of adhesive YOU will use has variables beyond our control like condition of your walls and how accurate are you with a glue gun? For one side wall like a 20′ standard height shipping container you will need approximately 3 tubes of the adhesive. That is in a perfect world. PL Premium 3x adhesive is applied in a ⅜” bead on the backside of the studs onto the ribbed surfaces.  We realize that a 3/8″ bead of glue is very subjective. It is important that there is enough adhesive to squish the dovetails on the back side of the stud when pressed to the container wall. Adhesive follows the “Goldie Locks rule, too much, too little, and just right To verify that enough adhesive is used, press the panel into place. Pull the panel back and check to see if the adhesive has spread out beyond the full width of the stud. It is normal for the panel to “float out” from the side of the container when it is accommodating irregularities in the container walls. Additional adhesive may be necessary in some areas. If you are doing it just right you can expect that 1 large 28-fl oz tube will cover 18 of our 24″ long studs or enough glue at a 3/8″ bead to cover 36 foot long bead of glue. 

Additionally you will have to estimate for glue around openings like windows and doors.

1 large 28-fl oz / 828 ml tube = 18 (24″ studs or inserts) approximately 6 panels or 48 square feet.
