Solar Dry Insulation (SDI)
NO DOUBLE VAPOUR BARRIER
Quik-Therm Solar Dry (SDI) is a Patent Pending high performance continuous rigid Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) insulation system with built-in drainage planes and rain screen capability. Solar Dry walls breathe, drain, dry and disperse moisture.
DOUBLE VAPOUR BARRIER TRAPS MOISTURE IN WALLS
Moisture management is the single most important factor in the design and construction of sustainable buildings and mold control. Approximately 90% of all building construction problems are related to water.
COLD CLIMATE TESTED
Quik-Therm SDI has been tested to ASTM C1363 in simulated winter like conditions by a Canadian accredited and certified laboratory. Temperature range: Outside -18C/Inside +21C with a 22 KPH wind/-31 wind chill. The test results have been evaluated by Canadian Building Scientists.
4’ wide X 8’, 10’ & 12’ long tongue and groove panels. 1.5" & 2" thicknesses. Custom thicknesses available. Effective R-Values: R-10 to R-36.
ALL IN ONE INSULATION SYSTEM - INSTALLS FAST
High performance continuous insulation, drainage plane, rain screen and impervious weather barrier. Installs 50% FASTER than conventional foam board insulation and furring materials.
BUILT-IN DRAINAGE PLANE
3/16” deep x 6” wide continuous air cavities allow walls to breathe, drain, dry and disperse moisture. Each 48” wide panel has 36 inches of drainage.
RAIN SCREEN & STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY
Wood or steel furring (strapping/build out) materials structurally attach SDI to studs. Provided a 3/8” (10 mm) air gap is maintained between SDI and the chosen cladding, a code compliant rain screen is achieved.
ALL WEATHER IMPERVIOUS BARRIER
Blocks wind, rain, ice and snow. Panels are hermetically sealed with impermeable engineered polymer facers.
TONGUE & GROOVE CONNECTION
Aligns panels, stops air leaks and provides support during installation.
WOOD AND STEEL FRAMED WALLS
INCREASED LIVING SPACE
2” x 4” walls meet building code requirements, reduce construction costs, increase living space and save trees.
SAVES ENERGY DOLLARS
2” Solar Dry combined with R-20 batt outperforms the R 2000 standard by 90%. Quik-Therm SDI is eligible for government energy savings programs.
SUPERIOR COMFORT WINTER & SUMMER
In winter, SDI reflective polymer facers return radiant heat back to the inside, in the summer radiant heat from the sun is redirected to the outside.
WHICH INSULATION SYSTEM WOULD YOU WANT IN YOUR HOME OR BUILDING?
With SDI, thermal bridging (energy loss) through framing is virtually eliminated.
|Dark colors indicate moisture, air leakage, energy loss and high energy bills.||Light colors promise a comfortable and healthy living environment and low energy bills.|

HEALTHY LIVING ENVIRONMENT
NO moisture, NO mold, NO formaldehyde
Quik-Therm Solar Dry does not produce ozone depleting off gasses. It may contain up to 15% recycled expanded polystyrene (EPS). SDI improves lifestyles and comfort while preserving natural resources and the ecosystem.
