Insulation using PUR and PIR foam improve the energy efficiency of buildings and reduce the emissions of CO2. PUR and PIR are some of the most efficient materials for insulation. It is possible to attain a high thermal performance with minimal insulation thickness by using these materials.

A big part of energy consumption in buildings comes from heating and cooling. The simplest and most cost-efficient way to reduce the energy need and emissions of CO2 is by making our buildings more energy efficient.


At Tinby and Tinby Skumplast we produce insulation materials in polyurethane (PUR) and polyisocyanurate (PIR). Both materials are among the best on the market with the highest thermal efficiency. When insulating with PUR and PIR using minimal material thickness to attain maximal efficiency is necessary.

Our materials in PUR can be used in a variety of buildings and is equally easy to use in newer as well as existing building projects. The material is very durable and keeps the same high performance throughout the entire lifespan of the building – resulting in big long-term energy savings. 

The foam plates in PUR and PIR from Tinby Skumplast can be used in walls, floors and roofs, behind rain shields and under eaves. The plates can be produced in pursuant to the specific needs of the client.

The PUR and PIR insulation plates do not absorb water. For that reason, the thermal conductivity of the foam does not expand due to water retention. PUR and PIR foam is a thermosetting material, which is easily processed using cutting tools.

PUR and PIR foam are dimensionally stable within the temperature range it is exposed to during its normal usage. The foam will not shrink and/or set itself with time. As a result, the part of the building where the insulation is located will not shrink or be degraded by pest.
