Thermal Break Material
Structural steel thermal break. Thermal Break Material (TBM-1) is a thermoset, reinforced composite used in bolted steel connections. It can transfer loading conditions up to 30,000 psi and has very good fire properties. This thermal break material is used to reduce conductive heat loss due to thermal bridging in bolted, structural steel connections that pass through the building envelope.
TBM-1 thermal break material conducts heat 820 times less than aluminum, 220 times less than steel and 65 times less than stainless steel. It is compatible with all field applied air barriers, sealants and flashings.
