PAROC XGF 001 winter mat is an insulation mat to be used in winter time around concrete casting forms. The mat is made of polyester, sealed in friction-coated aluminium-coloured polyethylene film. After concrete casting the new concrete is protected with the winter mat as soon as possible to prevent freezing. The friction-coated surface prevents the mat from sliding out of place. The winter mat has a long service life in normal use. It is supplied compressed by approx. 60% and after use can be compressed again to reduce transport and storage costs.
