SIP panel is not equal to H-Block…
…. and this in many respects ‼️
✔️ H-Block is a panel with box structure made of OSB filled with foamed polyurethane. SIP is an OSB panel glued to the polystyrene core, which is a shield, sometimes is used as a supporting element.
✔️ H-Block creates a homogeneous insulating and constructional structure by joining OSB linings with polyurethane.
The polyurethane filling the box of the H-Block panel, under very high pressure, is bonded to the OSB to form a homogeneous material.
SIP is a five-layer element in which OSB linings are glued together with a Styrofoam core.
The “constructional” quality of SIP is directly dependent on the quality of the glue, the method of its application and the method of sticking.
✔️ H-Block has an average insulation density of 42 kg / m3 and SIP 20-30 kg / m3. This causes that H-Block is much more resistant to destruction.
With the same core thickness, H-Block also has much higher thermal insulation (50-70%).
✔️ H-Block – thanks to the webs – can be used as a ceiling or roof, without additional construction (depending on the span).
SIP is not suitable for use on ceilings or roofs without additional construction.
✔️ H-Block – thanks to its construction – minimizes the use of the wooden load bearing structure of the building.
SIP is not structural and requires a wooden load bearing structure raising investment costs.
This applies in particular to roofs, where SIP must be laid on a structure (without thermal bridge) or as a filling of beams (with thermal bridge).
✔️ H-Block has standard OSB linings with a thickness of 15 mm. SIP usually has a thickness of 12 mm.
✔️ H-Block is produced in lengths of up to 13 m. SIP may not be longer than 3 m.
