The use of rolled polyethylene foam is promising in terms of the material’s properties and the possibility of forming seamless insulating shells. The use of foamed polymers as one of the components of insulating shells makes it possible to solve the issues of energy saving and the formation of optimal operating conditions for structures. The formation of seamless insulating shells, on the one hand, significantly increases the heat-shielding properties of the structure by minimizing cold bridges and eliminating leaks in the connection of individual insulating elements and on the surfaces adjoining structures. On the other hand, it creates practically impenetrable vapor and water barriers along the perimeter of the insulated structure.
