KARDO Waterpanel XL - PREMIUM - Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Insulation Board for Water Underfloor Heating Systems

Product Description:
KARDO Waterpanel XL is an Insulation Board with an
XPS rough core with grooves, for underfloor heating pipes
installation. All is covered by aluminium foil to increase the
thermal conductivity.

Approvals:

Declaration of performance for XPS insulation boards Dimensions: Length x Width:..............................1250 x 600 mm (+/-10mm) Thickness:......................................................30 mm (+/-2mm) Distance between grooves............................. 150 mm (+/-2mm)

Application:

KARDO Waterpanel XL is an Insulation Board, designed to
be used as an insulation material for water radiant
heating/cooling (floor, wall or ceiling). It's designed to not
require screed but flex adhesive, which will be placed on
the surface of the insulation board means, that tiles or
other type of coverings can be laid straight on top.

Product Features:

KARDO Waterpanel XL is an exceptionally durable and
easy to cut Insulation Board. This board can be installed in
damp areas and has superb insulation properties. This
system facilitates an increase in heating efficiency (the
warm-up time is shorter) and decrease the running cost.

Preparing the base:

The building base must be load-bearing, stable, levelled
and dust and grease free. Old layers of oil and paints must
be removed.

Installation:

 

1. The first step is to lay PE foil 0.2 mm thickness along the
wall partitions of a room with an edge band or styrofoam /
wool.

 

2. Next, lay KARDO Waterpanel XL boards and
standard XPS boards on the areas which won't require the
radiant heating system. If the floor or wall heating system
requires insulation boards which are thicker than 30 mm,
then a layer of standard rough XPS is required to be
underneath this system; Cut the aluminum foil on the bends and edge line if you
need to make a loop or return of the heating pipe.

 

3. Install the pipes by pressing them into the 16 mm diameter
grooves. NOTE: It is recommended to form coils into a
meander-like shape, which is efficient up to 80 m of the
pipe on one heating installation. If there is a need to use
longer pipes, it is possible to create the next heating
surface with pipe up to 80 m. Due to the possiblilty of the
boards lifting during the laying of the water pipes, they are
allowed to be fastened to the base with pins or wood
screws with washers;

 

4. Connect the pipes to distributors and a pumping set for
surface heating.

Installation for laminate flooring:
On the surface of KARDO Waterpanel XL, after inserting
the pipes into the grooves, arrange suitable underlay and
proceed to the assembly of laminate flooring in
accordance with the producer’s recommendations.

 

Installation for ceramic tiles:
Floor finishes like tiles can be laid directly on top of the
boards, using KARDO Proof adhesive with thickness
minimum 2 mm. KARDO Proof adhesive is recommended
for installation, as written on the pack. Please consult
KARDO Insulation before using another brand of an
adhesive.
