Kingspan Introduces New Lower GWP XPS Formula

Atlanta, Georgia, Sept. 30, 2020:

In support of the Kingspan Group’s world-wide Planet Passionate Initiative, Kingspan Insulation LLC is excited to announce the phased launch of GreenGuard XPS LG (Low GWP formula). Beginning in January, 2021, the Kingspan GreenGuard XPS LG product line will be available for markets throughout the United States and Canada that have new hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) regulations. Architects, engineers and specifiers are looking for products that deliver the advantages that XPS brings to construction, but with lower GWP impact to help them achieve their sustainability goals.

Kingspan’s GreenGuard XPS LG product line will continue to offer:

  • • the same green color,
  • • the same high R-value of 5 per inch,
  • • the same wide range of compressive strengths including 25, 40, 60 psi.

In North America, the Canadian Government and member states of The United States Climate Alliance have begun to implement regulations limiting the use of HFCs as XPS blowing agents. Kingspan will be fully compliant with these new blowing agent requirements in all affected markets we serve. Kingspan GreenGuard XPS LG products will proudly carry forward our 25+ year history of quality, high performing products at a great value.
