Producer of polymers and high-performance plastics BaySystems has been named an Energy Star partner for its Bayseal CC and PP grades of energy-efficient spray polyurethane foam insulation. A joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Star is designed to help consumers save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices.

Energy Star partners must meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and DOE, including following the Federal Trade Commission’s rules for reporting aged resistance to heat flow, or R-value. In order to receive its Energy Star partnership, BaySystems supplied the EPA with product case studies and literature providing quantifiable data supporting the company’s claims of its spray foam insulation’s energy-saving performance.

“The Energy Star logo is recognized by consumers as a symbol for energy savings, and we are proud that the BaySystems Energy Star partnership will help our Bayseal polyurethane spray foam products become recognized for their energy-efficient properties,” said Charles Valentine, commercial director with BaySystems.

Bayseal foam is an insulation that is sprayed onto both the inside and perimeter walls of a home to create a more efficient thermal envelope. The foam quickly expands, filling open spaces to provide a continuous, protective air barrier that virtually eliminates air leakage.
