CX-LP LowPro Product Description

This CX LowPro is an assembly of insulated infill framing for container side walls. The infill framing is typically placed on either 11 – 22 inches on center in an alternating pattern with the side wall inserts. The CX-LP infill framing is ideally suited for container conversions in commercial, residential, industrial, interior or exterior applications where thin wall insulation and framing is the primary concern. 

    • One box of the (CX-LPSW) 46 insulated framing will cover 92 lineal feet of corrugation infill framing or (11 1/2) 8′ tall sections

This CX LowPro bundle is a 3 part assembly for the long side walls of a container. Stock sheet infill insulation is supplied by others.

Estimating Insulated Studs

Estimating and ordering is simple measure and add together how many lineal feet of the corrugation infill framing that your container requires to complete the job. Divide the total lineal footage of  infill framing by the 2′ long inserts to find out how many CX-LP you require.  Don’t overestimate, cut studs, panels, and inserts can be re-used.

Infill framing is typically set at 22 inches on center. If  fill all the corrugations the stud amount will double.

Green Guard Certified Adhesive:

In Canada the Glue is LePage PL Premium

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? The example below is for one side wall of 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)

  • CX-LP 46 (46 studs) = 46
  • 46 ÷ 18 = 2 1/2 tubes of the adhesive
  • I-SWI (30) = 1 tube of the adhesive

Important Notice: Container Surface Temperature Applications

When bonding EPS and XPS foam insulation, use above 40°F (4°C) and avoid cure and surface temperatures above 90°F (32°C). Surfaces must be clean, dry and free of frost, grease, dust and other contaminants. Pre-fit all materials and protect finished surfaces. If using cartridge format, cut nozzle at a 45° angle to desired bead size and puncture inner seal. Be very careful not to allow Loctite® PL® Premium to cure on a finished surface.

Cold Weather Tips:  

Interior Installation of a Shipping Container

In cold conditions below 40°F (4°C), heating the interior space of the container will not be sufficient for the adhesive to cure. The insulation panels will not allow heat to transfer to the container’s bonding surface.  It is recommended to either move the container to a heated area or tent and heat the exterior until the adhesive cures.

Exterior Installation

The interior of the container can be heated until the adhesive has cured.

Interior and Exterior Installation

Install the exterior panels first while heating the interior.  Allow adhesive to cure before installing interior insulation.
