Thermal Properties

One of the useful features of corrugated cardboard is the presence of a multitude of air pockets spread throughout the product. As the air represents a substantial portion of the total cardboard volume, it substantially reduces the thermal conductivity of the material. 

A further test carried out by the CSIRO showed CeramiBoard® to have 40% higher resistance to heat flow than plasterboard and 300% higher resistance than fibre cement board (for equal thickness).

The actual R-value was in fact 0.233m2/KW for 28.5mm thickness versus plasterboard at 0.166m2/KW and fibre cement at 0.06m2/KW.
