Kingspan Kooltherm K108 Phenolic Cavity Board Wall Insulation: Installation Guide & FAQs

Kingspan Kooltherm K108 Phenolic Cavity Board Wall Insulation is a leading-edge solution designed for enhancing thermal performance in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. This guide outlines the step-by-step process for installing the K108 insulation, ensuring efficiency and effectiveness in insulation application.


1. Surface Preparation: Begin with a clean, dry wall surface, free of any debris or moisture. This step is crucial for the adhesion of insulation boards and to prevent future issues related to dampness. Accurate measurement of the area to be insulated is essential for cutting the insulation material to the right size, minimizing waste and ensuring a snug fit.

Cutting to Size

2. Measuring and Marking: Measure the area precisely and mark the Kingspan Kooltherm K108 boards for cutting, ensuring that the sizes match the wall cavity spaces accurately.

3. Cutting: Use a fine-tooth saw or a sharp knife to cut the K108 boards. This method ensures a clean, straight edge, which is vital for effective insulation and thermal bridging prevention.

Applying Insulation

4. Fitting the Boards: Carefully fit the insulation boards into the cavity space. The K108 boards should be snug against the wall, ensuring there are no gaps. Avoid compressing the boards, as this can reduce their insulating performance.

Securing Insulation

5. Sealing: Once the boards are in place, use a suitable adhesive or tape to seal the joints between each board. This step is crucial for creating a continuous thermal barrier, maximizing the insulation's efficiency.

Finishing Touches

6. Waterproofing: In areas exposed to moisture or outdoor conditions, apply a waterproof finish or cladding over the insulation. This protects the insulation from water ingress and prolongs its lifespan.
