Graphite polystyrene (GPS) rigid board insulation with double-sided reflective film that improves thermal comfort and energy efficiency.
Durability and Lightweight
Higher R-value per dollar
Increased Thermal Performance
Expanded Polystyrene Embedded with Graphite Particles
SilveRboard® Graphite XS can be used as the second plane of protection under exterior cladding when the joints are properly taped and sealed, eliminating the need for an additional membrane. The laminated film comes micro perforated by default (denoted by XS) but is also available without perforations by special order.
Both SilveRboard® 35XS and SilveRboard® Graphite XS are available in a wide range of thicknesses ranging from 1/2″ (13mm) to 6″ (152mm). Standard board dimensions include 4×8′ and 4×9′ (1.2×2.4m and 1.2×2.7m).

About Graphite Polystyrene Insulation (GPS)
High performing and cost effective non-structural graphite polystyrene (GPS) rigid insulation board for exterior wall applications on wood or steel frame construction. The expanded polystyrene (EPS) core is embedded with graphite particles which increase the thermal performance, compared to conventional EPS.
In addition to the increased thermal resistance, the foam is laminated with a reflective film on both sides increasing board strength and flexibility, reducing site damage and waste. The reflective laminated surfaces are micro perforated giving the panel high water vapor permeance greatly reducing the likelihood of trapped moisture through the increased drying potential. The larger panels and laminated film help improve job site efficiency and reduce labor costs.
Building with SilveRboard® Graphite
Superior Thermal Insulator
SilveRboard® Graphite has a high R-value and an exceptional long-term R-value retention. It also provides increased thermal resistance in lower temperatures.
The perforated boards provide high vapor permeance allowing walls to dry out and can act as a second plane of protection when taped and sealed.
Durable, Lightweight, Flexible
Each panel is easy to handle due to the ultra-low weight and is easily cut.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
SilveRboard® Graphite does not contain CFCs or HCFCs, no off-gassing and does not promote growth of mold and mildew.
Graphite EPS foam saves energy during manufacturing.
Increases Comfort & Energy Savings
Acts as continuous insulation in the building envelope, reducing thermal bridging and energy consumption while improving comfort.
SilveRboard® Graphite Projects & Applications
Shaping A More Sustainable World
Sustainability is one of our top priorities, both for our products themselves and for what our products make possible. Manufactured without ozone-damaging compounds, recyclable and endlessly reusable, EPS has a smaller carbon footprint and results in less pollution than the manufacturing of alternative materials. And EPS helps create a more sustainable world by making buildings more energy efficient, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, preventing product damage and waste, and reducing shipping fuel usage, just to name a few. We’re constantly working to find new ways to be good stewards of our customers’ visions and of our environment.
