PolyX PB30

Our best seller, with more than 40 million m² installed worldwide.

A special low-e copper colour anti-glare with reinforced net for extra strength covering 8mm heavy duty air bubbles

PolyX PB30 (Big) is a 8mm big inner thermo cellular flame retardant bubble-core covered insulation. PB30 utilises high performance low-emissivity antiglare copper on top of an 18 microns thick aluminum foil with reinforced net on top, and a pure aluminum foil on bottom which also acts as a thermal break to stop heat transferring from the insulation to the building’s structure.

Coming with a 15 year warranty, you can expect improved internal lighting and a 95-97% heat reflectivity rate to keep the inside of your shed or structure cool at all times.

With excellent cost-efficiency, competitive pricing and long-lasting performance, there’s a reason PB30 is our best seller.

What is the thickness of PolyX PB30?

Total nominal thickness = 8mm.

What R-Value can PolyX PB30 achieve?

PB30 adds to a Total R-Value (system R value). The effective R value in a system depends on the installation and environmental conditions. The R-Value may be affected or reduced due to dust on upward facing surfaces or as a result of ventilation.

PB30 can achieve several Total R-Values depending on the installation method, cavity depth, cavity design and other building components used in the system. For full details about PB30 R-Values and building systems range for roofs, ceilings, walls and floors kindly contact us to discuss your requirements.

I'm a roofer that has been struggling to source insulation since COVID. PolyX has literally saved my business! not only have they been supplying me NEXT DAY thermal reflective insulation (which is SO much easier and faster to install then bulk insulation), but they have also worked with me to help me win some big contracts! Big thanks to the team for holding my hand. You have changed my roofing business!
