New PermaBase CI Insulated Cement Board™, a composite cement board that combines the strength and benefits of PermaBase with rigid insulation to create an ideal substrate for exterior finishes, was introduced Tuesday at The International Surface Event (TISE) at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas according to PermaBase Cement Board.
A National Gypsum brand, PermaBase CI meets or exceeds energy code requirements in all seven climate zones across the country with an R-Value of R-10. For use in residential, multi-family and low-rise commercial applications, PermaBase CI is lighter weight than using separate cement board and insulation products.
“Using PermaBase CI Insulated Cement Board™ as a substrate for exterior finishes can reduce total installed costs by 20 to 25 percent,” said Tony Fuller, product manager for PermaBase at National Gypsum. “Given the construction industry’s evolving energy code requirements, this is good news for builders, general contractors, specifiers, design-build professionals and architects.”
