Insulating Lining Paper Graphite+ is a brand new product that utilizes the natural reflectivity of graphite combined with polystyrene cells to create an effective energy saving insulating wallcovering. It has been approved by the Energy Saving Trust due to its thermal efficiency and energy saving properties. The material is treated with a fire retardant.
Made from a 4mm thick layer of BASF expanded polystyrene, infused with graphite particles and laminated to a reinforced backing, Graphite+ delivers 20% better insulation performance than standard Insulating Lining Paper. This is equivalent to having an extra 26cm of concrete on your walls over and above an insulating lining paper.
The special graphite particles act like thousands of mirrors reflecting radiant heat back into the room and thus reducing heat loss and energy bills. Graphite+ is a paste the wall product which makes it easier use. Furthermore the product is extremely effective in disguising uneven and defective wall surfaces.
Upgrade the fire resistance of Insulating Lining Paper Graphite Plus to BS Class 1 by using our new Wallrock Thermal FR Adhesive and overhang with Wallrock Fireliner lining paper. See the Fire Certificate by clicking here
This product is suitable as a localised ‘problem solver’ for cold external walls and is not recommended for use in fire escape routes inside your home unless the surface is further treated with a fire retardant covering. This product is class E fire rated and should not be used for projects such as new builds and extensions where Building regulations are applicable.

"The winter heating bills have been halved; the general comfort levels have more than doubled. Outer walls quickly feel warm to the touch. I am very glad I invested in this product."
Heat transfer through conventional polystyrene.
Improved insulation using polystyrene with graphite.
4mm eps polystyrene foam has the same insulation effect as an 85mm brick, 98mm sandstone block or 262mm concrete.
Important Safety Information Compliance with Building Regulations and Fire SafetyThis product should not be used in isolation for projects such as new builds and extensions where Building Regulations are applicable. If used as part of a system that both adds to the insulation value and protects the surface from fire it may be compliant but expert advice should be sought.Fire resistance can be improved to meet Building Regulations by using in conjunction with the Wallrock Fireliner system, cross lining the surface with Wallrock Fireliner and using Wallrock Fireliner FR Adhesive to apply both products. This improves the performance of the system to a BS Class 1 which satisfies Building Regulations in relation to wallpapers used in Residential Accommodation (including garages). Fire SafetyWhen used in isolation this product is suitable as a localised ‘problem solver’ only for cold external walls and is not recommended for use in fire escape routes or on ceilings PreparationSurfaces painted prior to 1960 may contain lead pigments and special precautions should be taken when preparing such surfaces.
We strongly recommend using our Wallrock Thermal Liner Adhesive for application of this product, and can unfortunatley not accept responsibility for adhesion problems when an alternative adhesive has been used.
For the perfect finish, overhang with Wallrock Fibreliner ® or other suitable product from the Wallrock family.
Single length: 7.5m x 0.5m coverage: 3.75m² approx
Adhesive We recommend Wallrock Thermal Liner Adhesive for application of this product or other solvent free adhesives suitable for hanging polystyrene veneers. However, we cannot unfortunately accept responsibility for adhesion problems when an adhesive other than Wallrock Thermal Liner Adhesive has been used.
Important Inspect rolls carefully before beginning as we cannot accept claims for consequential loss in respect of any defects apparent prior to hanging. Every effort is made to ensure all rolls reach you in perfect condition, but faults can occur from time to time. Please retain all labels until the project is complete and you are satisfied with the results - we will require them in the unlikely event you encounter a problem we recommend that after hanging no more than 2 lengths, the result is inspected before continuing.
Warning Surfaces painted prior to 1960 may contain lead pigments and special precautions should be taken when preparing these surfaces.
This is a simple wallpaper calculator and should be used as a guide only. You can find the roll width and roll length you are after on the specific product page.Roll widths are provided in meters (such as 0.5 x 10mtr) so your wall widths and heights should be inputted in meters also.If you are purchasing an offset match product then you may need a little extra as there may be some waste. If you have any windows or doors in your walls you can simply ignore these. This will give a good estimate of required roll numbers.
