CX LowPro Insulated Studs

CX LowPro Interior and Exterior Applications!

CX LowPro a superior engineered solution for insulating containers. The CX-LP studs is ideally suited for intermodal container conversions. CX-LP is a no compromise, one step insulated stud that takes the complexity out of shipping containers retrofits. The adhesively applied CX-LP eliminates the hundreds of holes associated with shipping container or sea can modifications. Insulating a shipping container is a balancing act between space, comfort, energy efficiency, and humidity control, LowPro gives you that control. 

CX LowPro Insulated Studs

The CX LowPro is a versatile thin profile insulation a for shipping container construction. Combining all the best features of continuous insulation and framing itis ready for finishing. Eliminating parts, pieces and guess work.

Export Friendly

InSoFast can pack a shipping container with enough CX-LP studs to do 40-50 container conversions reducing the cost of freight. The CX-LP concentrates the value by reducing the air shipped by 10-fold.

One box of the CX-LP (46 Insulated studs) will do 92 lineal feet of framing.   One 20' standard shipping container side wall would need 44 pcs, of the CX LowPros insulated studs and 20 pcs. of the Side Wall Inserts to do one long side wall.

  • One box of Side Wall Inserts has 28 pcs. that are 48 inches long or will cover 112 Lineal feet of corrugation in-fill.

Features / Benefits;
  • InSoFast engineered system of continuous insulation is perfectly suited for shipping container fabrication. 
    • Simple to install
      • Why work so hard?
      • Adaptable Attachment
      • No Special Tools Needed
    • Built-in Studs*
      • Engineered Framing 
      • Non-conductive framing 
      • No energy penalty for the studs
      • Non corrosive framing...non rusting 
      • Adhesive Application no holes
    • Closed-cell high pressure fused EPS Insulation
    • Engineered for Shipping Containers
    • Lives up to its name: In So Fast

    *The high-strength co-polymer plastic studs on 22-inches centers provide a positive attachment stud for finishing the container. The ribbed dovetails surface provides a cast-in-place adhesive applications against the metal surfaces.

Thermal Disconnect;
  • The CX LowPro provides a thermal disconnect
  • Uninterrupted continuous insulation (CI)
    • InSoFast goes beyond just “CI”. The fastener that attaches the finishes does not penetrate the steel reducing thermal shorts to near zero.
    • Fastening the exterior cladding does not penetrate the weather resistant barrier keeping your container secure and dry.
  • CX LowPro continuous insulation is the best choice for continuous-continuous insulation.
  • Eliminates thermal leaks and prevents water vapor from reaching the container's steel walls.

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
  • CSW (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.

LowPro Endwall Insulated Stud

The CX LowPro is a versatile thin profile insulation stud for insulating the end wall of a shipping container construction. Combining all the best features of continuous insulation and framing the LowPro Endwall is ready for finishing. Eliminating parts, pieces and guess work.

LP-EW: LowPro End Wall bundle is part of a assembly that has material to finish the end wall of a 9' high cube or 8' standard shipping container. The LP-EW studs are placed 10 inches on center alternating with the end wall inserts. The LP-EW studs are ideally suited for container conversions for commercial, residential, industrial, interior or exterior applications where thin wall insulation and framing is the primary concern. Refer to the container diagram to determine the proper fit is very important.

  • *This LP-EW bundle is a 3 part assembly designed to work on the end wall of a container. Sheet infill insulation supplied by others.
