Barricade Thermo-Brace SIB

4-in-1 Reversible Structural Insulated Sheathing Solution

Barricade - Thermo-Brace S.I.B. Layers

1. Safe-Reflective Facer (WRB)

Weather-Resistant Barrier (WRB) specially designed and guaranteed to not overheat vinyl.

2. BASF Neopor® GPS

Unlike polyiso and XPS, Neopor GPS doesn’t use HFC gas agents for R-value, which can deplete over time. XPS only retains 90% of it’s initial R-value over its lifetime and the R-value of Neopor GPS is up to 30% higher than EPS (white foam).

3. Thermo-Brace Structural Sheathing

Thermo-Brace is a fiberboard structural sheathing with a composite core that provides the structural strength required while offering a more weather-resistant barrier than OSB. It costs less than OSB or ZIP System® and is lighter, easier to handle, cut, and install.

4. Thermo-Brace w/ Non-Reflective Facer (WRB)

Additional weather-resistant barrier protection on the reverse side. Reversible installation allows for this side to be faced out or in.

Durable, Cost-Saving, and Faster Installation

Exclusively using BASF Neopor® GPS (Graphite Polystyrene) rigid foam in conjunction with Barricade Thermo-Brace, Thermo-Brace S.I.B. is a reversible, lightweight, 4-in-1 structural sheathing solution that provides four layers of enforced protection against water, moisture vapor, mold, and more. Thermo-Brace S.I.B. is today’s energy-efficient and cost-effective insulative solution for architects, contractors, and builders.
