Time-tested Thermal Insulation.
Why FOAMGLAS® T3+
Our next generation FOAMGLAS® T3+ achieves a lambda-value of 0,036 W/(m.K), improving on its predecessor by an impressive 12%. All this without influencing the well-known advantages of FOAMGLAS®: incombustibility, superior, compressive, strength and long lasting thermal insulation performance. A groundbreaking achievement! It took more than 4 years of Research and Development, to produce this breakthrough in the field of cellular glass insulation.
Over the last 12 months our new FOAMGAS T3+ has proved to be a market winner. Its impressive thermal conductivity, combined with high compressive strength and Euroclass A1 non combustibility is popular with Specifiers, Architects, Engineers and Contractors. Following numerous requests we are pleased to confirm the T3+ insulation range is now increased to include 190 mm and 200 mm thickness.
Our T3+ portfolio now provides a wide range of thicknesses in 10 mm increments from 50 mm to 200 mm, enabling many U values to be achieved with a single insulation layer. Less install time, lower costs. T3+: the best performing solution, saving time and money.
To meet increasing market demands for the T3+ insulation we are making significant investments in a new T3+ production line at our Klášterec site in the Czech Republic.

FOAMGLAS® Insulation has an exceptional combination of properties. Learn all about them!
Time-tested thermal insulation performance
FOAMGLAS® has excellent insulating capabilities. Its hermetically sealed, closed-cell, glass structure has proven its capability to provide long term thermal insulation performance.
Advantage: Continuously achieves high thermal resistance for the lifetime of the building, ensures reliable energy savings and a comfortable indoor climate all year round.
FOAMGLAS® consists of pure glass, it has a truly hermetically sealed, closed cell, glass structure. It is watertight. The close cell structure prevents water absorption, penetration or tracking by capillary action.
Advantage: does not absorb any moisture and does not swell.
FOAMGLAS® is inorganic it cannot rot and is pest-proof.
Advantage: in all situations, an insulation which keeps design risk to a minimum.
FOAMGLAS® supports high compressive loads without deflection or movement.
Advantage: it is the ideal insulation material for load bearing areas, such as, foundations, floors, walkways, terraces, podium roofs, balconies, vehicle parking, and for supporting M&E equipment.
Fire and fumes
FOAMGLAS® consists of pure glass, it’s non-toxic and non-combustible.
Advantage: it does not combust, support fire, produce fumes, or present a fire risk in the building structure. Fire behavior: Classification according to EN 13501: A1, non-combustible; classification according to ASTM E 84, smoke development and flame spread - zero.
FOAMGLAS® consists of pure glass, it has a truly hermetically sealed, closed cell, glass structure. It is gas and vapour tight.
Advantage: FOAMGLAS® is vapour tight, providing both an insulation and high performance vapour barrier in one material.
FOAMGLAS® has a low coefficient of thermal movement, in the same range as concrete and steel.
Advantage: it can be adhesive bonded onto the structure, no mechanical fixings, therefore no thermal bridging.
Acid- and chemical resistant
FOAMGLAS® consists of pure glass, it is resistant to organic solvents and acids.
Advantage: it can withstand aggressive mediums and demanding environments.
Easy to cut
FOAMGLAS® consists of pure glass.
Advantage: it is non-toxic, non-hazardous, it does not contaminate the water table; and is easily cut using hand tools.
FOAMGLAS® is manufactured using minimum 60% recycled glass. It has a GWP < 1,5 and ODP = 0. It is free of environmentally damaging flame retardants and gas propellants.
Advantage: FOAMGLAS® can be recycled or used in landscaping.
FOAMGLAS® is gas tight as it has an hermetically sealed closed cell structure. The potential penetration of radon gas is therefore prevented, and this for the lifetime of the building
Advantage: a healthy living environment is guaranteed, without having to install complex ventilation systems.
Thanks to the considerable progress being made in thermal conductivity, and the wider selection of thicknesses available, it is now possible to apply FOAMGLAS® in a single layer in various situations. This creates a win-win, both in terms of time and budget. Besides our traditional systems for flat roofs, this innovative insulating material offers scope for all possible areas of the building envelope, including facades and interior applications.
