Saarpor’s Graphite Insulating Lining paper is a brand new product that utilises the natural reflectivity of graphite to deliver an effective energy saving, thermal insulating and sound insulating wallcovering.
Made from a 4mm thick layer of BASF expandable polystyrene, infused with graphite particles and laminated to a high quality non-woven lining paper, Graphite Insulating Lining Paper delivers 20% better insulation performance than standard insulating lining paper. This is equivalent to having an extra 26cm of concrete on your walls over and above an insulating lining paper.
The special graphite particles act like thousands of mirrors reflecting thermal radiation back into the room and thus reducing heat loss and energy bills. Graphite Insulating Lining Paper is a Paste the Wall only product which makes it easy to hang and alongside it’s thermal properties, it is also very effective for covering damaged walls and plaster.
Benefits of Graphite Insulating Lining Paper
- It can be painted or overhung with another paste-the-wall liner for perfect finish
- Provides a Moderate Level of Thermal Insulation
- Resists Damp and Mould Formation
- Covers Cracked, Damaged Plaster
- Suitable for Walls & Ceilings
- Paste the Wall Only
- Twice as Thick as Regular Polystyrene
- Contains No PVC
Important - If you are planning to hang lining paper or Wallpaper on top of Graphite Insulating Lining Paper, we strongly recommend that you use a non-woven lining paper such as Wallrock Fibreliner or Wallrock Fibreliner Plus.
Traditional lining paper shrinks and expands when pasted and can cause lifting on the joints. In contrast, non-woven lining paper is dimensionally stable and ensures a perfect finish.
Important Safety Information
Compliance with Building Regulations;
This product should not be used in isolation for projects such as new builds and extensions where Building Regulations are applicable. If used as part of a system that both adds to the insulation value and protects the surface from fire it may be compliant but expert advice should be sought.
When used in isolation this product is suitable as a localised ‘problem solver’ for cold external walls and is not recommended for use in fire escape routes or on ceilings.
Fire resistance can also be improved significantly by cross lining the surface with Wallrock Fireliner applied with Fireliner FR Adhesive
Surfaces painted prior to 1960 may contain lead pigments and special precautions should be taken when preparing such surfaces.
