ISOWALL brand insulating panels are stressed skin sandwich panels consisting of steel, aluminum, or composite facings permanently bonded to a plastic foam core with a heat polymerizing adhesive. The panels are produced on a continuous, integrated production line which performs roll forming, core shaping, laminating, and sizing functions. This state of the art line, developed by
AIC, insures a high standard of appearance and quality.

reinforced polyester, conforming to NFPA Class C or better, laminated to 5/8"
oriented strand/aspen flake board.
1.2 Panel edges shall be precisely formed to assure foam to foam contact and
alignment of panel facings and to facilitate vapor barrier and sanitary sealing as required.
1.2.1 Tongue and Groove Edge Treatment
(TAGET) shall be continuously roll formed into facings such that the formed tongue of one panel fits into
the groove formed by the facing and core of the adjacent panel. In addition, the core shall be grooved to accept a .25" x 2.75" tempered
hardboard alignment spline.
1.2.2 Panels shall be formed and grooved to accept aluminum or poly

have a continuously roll formed configuration consisting of 0.04" x
0.75" shadowlines spaced 5" apart.
1.4 Insulating core thickness and type shall be determined based on the temperature
differential and other building requirements.

CAUTION: Plastic facing and
insulating core materials are combustible
and may present a serious fire hazard if improperly used or stored. Their flamability
characteristics are defined for purposes of comparison with other materials by various standard tests such as ASTM E84. However, such tests do not measure the performance or reflect hazards presented by these materials or any other materials under actual fire conditions.
1.5.1 Panel width shall be 47.375 inches +/- 1/16 inch.
1.5.2 Panel thickness shall be as ordered +/- 1/16 inch.
1.5.3 Panel length shall be full height unless otherwise designated. Length tolerance shall be +/- 1/8 inch.
1.5.4 Panels shall be fabricated in the field to fit the structure including sloping walls to fit roof shape and fitting wall corners.
