The power of PIR insulation
Firestone RESISTA is a high-performance polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation board laminated on both sides to a gastight multi-layered aluminum-kraft facer (AK) or mineral coated glass fiber facer (MG). It can be installed over wooden, concrete, and metal roof decks, both on new-build and refurbishment projects, regardless of the roof slope (boards are available flat and tapered). RESISTA insulation boards are compatible with a wide variety of waterproofing membranes and adhesives and are suitable for use on mechanically fastened, fully adhered, and ballasted roofing systems.
Firestone RESISTA insulation boards provide outstanding and durable thermal resistance, dimensional stability, and compressive strength, which translates into a long-lasting premium performance. They also have a good reaction to fire: they do not smolder, melt or drip and do not promote fire propagation.
Firestone RESISTA insulation boards are sustainable and ecological as the foam technology uses an HCFC-free blowing agent with a low GWP (Global Warming Potential) and zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential). Manufactured in an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified factory.
RESISTA boards are also very durable: when installed correctly, they will last for the lifetime of the building.
