Kooltherm K16


Premium performance rigid phenolic insulated dry-lining plasterboard

Kingspan Kooltherm K16 is a premium performance rigid phenolic insulated dry-lining plasterboard for plaster-dab / adhesive dry-lining.

Kingspan Kooltherm K16 insulated plaster board is manufactured in Castleblayney without the use of CFCs/HCFCs and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP).
  • Negligible smoke obscuration
  • Unaffected by air infiltration
  • Easy to handle  and install
  • Ideal for new build projects
  • Allows quick response to heating
The Kooltherm K16 is ideally suited for new insulated cavity wall constructions and may be either adhesively bonded or mechanically fixed directly to the inner block leaf. Kingspan Kooltherm® K18 Insulated Plasterboard should be considered for mechanically fixed specifications, as it will often give better U−values than Kingspan Kooltherm® K16 Insulated Plasterboard.
