2 AS IMPORTANT FOR TODAY AS FOR TOMORROW- RESPONSIBLE SOLUTIONS What could be more important than planning a home? And what could be more important to the successful completion of the plans than quality materials? Today, the best materials are good for the home, the budget and the environment. Insulation is one of the critical materials. It protects the home from heat and cold and saves money by saving energy. Equally important, the best materials do not pose a risk to the health of the occupants or the health of the environment. INSULATING PANELS MADE OF NEOPOR are the solution for homeowners who think ahead. Neopor is a high-tech material that sets new standards for efficient thermal insulation and environmental compatibility. 2

3 SMALL, ROUND, BLACK ONE RAW MATERIAL, MANY APPLICATIONS NEOPOR: small black beads of polystyrene granules with a blowing agent for expansion. BASF produces this unique raw material, which foam manufacturers convert into insulating foams for a wide array of applications. CONVERTERS EXPAND THESE BLACK BEADS on conventional EPS equipment and transform them into silver-gray foam blocks, panels and molded parts then cut the blocks into panels of different thicknesses. INSULATING MATERIALS MADE OF NEOPOR offer a higher insulating capacity using less material. They are easy on the environment and on the wallet. Neopor insulating materials make a modern, ecologically sound lifestyle a reality. And that is what we call Innovation in Insulation. 11 3

4 Neopor Patent for the polymerization of monostyrene Patent for Neopor Styropor Patent for Styropor expandable polystyrene (EPS) BASF INSULATING MATERIALS: A LONG TRADITION OF LEADING SOLUTIONS FOR EFFICIENT THERMAL PROTECTION STYROPOR this the brand behind an unmatched success story. With the invention of expandable polystyrene (EPS), BASF introduced a classic to the world more than 50 years ago. Even today, Styropor EPS occupies worldwide positions both in efficient insulation and in protective packaging. BUILDING UPON STYROPOR BASF developed innovative Neopor. Like Styropor, Neopor insulating material is expanded and processed into foam blocks, panels and molded parts. THE CRUCIAL DIFFERENCE in Neopor is that BASF mixed graphite with the raw material. The graphite reflects radiant heat and significantly improves insulation capacity. The compelling advantage: far less product achieves the same insulating effect. You can see the sign of this advantage in the silver-gray color of the product and in the black on a bottom line. 10

5 SUPERIOR INSULATION. CAREFREE COMFORT. You can keep a house warm in the winter and cool in the summer without sacrificing a commitment to conserve energy and resources. SAVE ENERGY. PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT. Neopor panels greater energy efficiency helps lower heating demands and costs which is good both for the house and for the planet. PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION. LONG-TERM VALUE. Professional-quality work protects the house, helping retain its value over time as well as lowering costs year after year. 3

6 FEEL GOOD WHILE SAVING ENERGY Silver-gray. Neopor panels look different and are different. They embody sophisticated advances in insulating technology and performance. The compelling advantage: far less product achieves the same insulating effect. The broad range of Neopor insulation solutions can apply the same high-level energy efficiency to many areas of the home. And the more Neopor insulation can do for homeowners, the more homeowners can do for the environment. Lowering the energy consumption lowers the emissions of CO2, a significant greenhouse gas. And what could be better than house warming instead of global warming? 4

7 IF THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF A PRODUCT IS LOW, the product is situated in the upper region of the diagram. At the bottom are the products that seen as a whole have higher impact. THE COST-EFFICIENT AND ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND PRODUCTS are situated in the upper right quadrant. They exhibit low environmental impact as well as low costs. Neopor is particularly eco-efficient. 9

8 GOOD INSULATION CANNOT BE SEEN BUT IT CAN BE FELT It is really a great feeling when you know that you have selected a sustainable solution for your home. Your house will help you consume less energy and save valuable resourc es. We need to think about tomorrow today; after all, a family s home is much more than just a roof and four walls. 0.7 High eco-efficiency ECO-EFFICIENCY MEANS giving equal weight both to costs and environmental impact. benefit obtained from using 1 m 2 of the composite thermal insulation system environmental burden (standardized) 1.0 Mineral fiber Neopor Styropor Low eco-efficiency costs (standardized) alternatives examined: Neopor Styropor mineral fiber Eco-efficiency analysis of thermal insulation composite systems used in the Three-Liter House in the Brunck neighborhood of Ludwigshafen, Germany, confirmed by the Öko-Institut in Freiburg and by the TÜV (German Technical Inspection Association). MATERIAL AND ENERGY CONSUMPTION, COSTS, SAVINGS POTENTIAL. Together, they define a product s eco-efficiency. PRODUCTS are plotted on a four-quadrant system, with costs on the horizontal axis and environmental effects on the vertical axis. IF THE TOTAL COSTS ARE LOW, the the product is situated in the right-hand section. This measure includes all costs, ranging from manufacturing to end-use phase. 8

9 TINY GRAPHITE PARTICLES give Neopor foam its silver-gray shine. More important, these infrared absorbers and heat reflectors lower the material s thermal conductivity. That is why Neopor panels are approximately 20% thinner than panels made of white EPS foam. BETTER FOR CONTRACTORS. Working with thinner panels translates to lower construction and installation costs as well as lower transportation and handling costs. In fact, Neopor panels add value all along the value chain from factory floor to construction site. EFFICIENCY PAYS -- EVERYWHERE. Producing thinner panels consumes fewer resources. Plus more efficient insulating technology means it takes less energy to heat or cool a house to the same degree. The payoff: a better balance for the environment and the homeowner. 95

10 FROM THE BASEMENT TO THE ROOF AN INSULATING MATERIAL FOR ALL SEASONS Inner walls, exteriors or roofs spring, summer, fall or winter Neopor insulates reliably and protects all critical areas of the home. In fact, highly efficient "near-zero energy homes" are already incorporating Neopor materials that demonstrate excellent thermal insulation performance. EXTERIOR INSULATION AND FINISH SYSTEMS (EIFS) Exterior insulation with Neopor creates a healthy and comfortable living environment, while reducing energy use and costs. EIFS are tough too. The flexibility of Neopor panels over a wide range of temperatures combined with the flexibility of EIFS base coats and finishings produces crack-resistant exterior wall surfaces. insulated panels (SIPs) made of Neopor excel. Their insulating and construction advantages make an undeniable difference. FLAT ROOF INSULATION The consistently high-level thermal protection of Neopor panels -- cut precisely to size is excellent for the extreme thermal loads of flat roofs. 6 SLOPED ROOF INSULATION Insulation is particularly important for roofs and this is where structural

11 Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) Flat Roof Insulation Special Structural Components Cavity Wall Insulation Interior Insulation Sloped Roofs Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) Floor Insulation Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) Floor and Ceiling Insulation Insulation in Stud Construction Insulation In Curtain Walls FLOOR INSULATION In addition to excellent thermal insulation, panels made of Neopor improve sound control. Even without radiant floor heating, ceiling and sub-floor insulation of Neopor ensures a comfortable indoor climate. INSULATING CONCRETE FORMS (ICFs) ICFs made of Neopor are proving their worth for home comfort and energy efficiency by combining high-performance insulating technology with superior structural stability. WALL INSULATION Neopor extends excellent insulation and environmental balance to interiors with cavity wall insulation, SIPs and sheathing options. 7
