SlimFix DecoBio is an insulation system to decrease the lost of warmth and thus to save valuable energy. Its field of application is at the inside of pitched roofs (attics). The insulation material used is BioFoam. BioFoam is a polyactic acid (PLA) based foam material that can be used as an alternative to traditional insulation materials . It has the same characteristics as EPS insulation. EPS is an oil based plastic. BioFoam is made out of plants. BioFoam can be completely biodegraded, composted or used for feedstock for recycling.

Defined materials, ingredients and additives

SlimFix DecoBio consists of 2x 3mm chipboard with a core of the insulation material BioFoam. BioFoam is produced from the renewable resource PLA. PLA has a different production process than most other polymers. This polymer is derived from the production of sugar cane, which is being refined to sugar, then fermented to lactic acid, from which lactide is being made. Lactide is finally polymerised to PLA. By using CO2 the raw BioBeads are expanded to EPS-like pearls filled with air (98%).
