Product Focus: Insulating Products
Mineral Wool Insulation
UltraBatt is a residential and light commercial insulation batt. It is engineered to provide thermal comfort, fire protection and sound control all in one product. In exterior walls, it conserves energy with an R-15 in 2x4 construction and R-23 in 2x6 walls. The product is made with 70 percent pre-consumer recycled content and is fire resistant to temperatures over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Sound control is very desirable in interior walls, floors, ceilings and multi-family construction. The dense insulation is an exceptional sound insulation providing an STC rating of 30 in 2x4 wall assemblies, with a single layer of gypsum board on both sides.
The company introduces a new “stay-in-place” concrete form for 6-inch poured walls.
The Extrutech FORM System, which is now in production, brings a bright new look to concrete form construction. The 24-inch wide by 6-inch thick panel is pre-cut to project specifications and snaps together with a double-spline E-Locking System. This form offers an easy to clean sanitary surface on both sides. The product creates a structural wall system that is builder and customer friendly.
HFR-free Foam Insulation
Kingspan Insulated Panels
IPN-Nano is an extraordinary high-endurance foam insulation material for the building envelope, which is safe, environmentally responsible and thermally efficient. This insulation is also the first to be free of halogenated flame retardants. IPN-Nano is literally at the core of Kingspan’s insulated metal panel designs, which places it at the heart of the company’s EnvelopeFirst design strategy; the first step towards achieving a Net Zero energy building. The insulation enables design professionals to design envelope systems that have a unique combination of unrivaled thermal performance, lifetime durability, resilience and service life.
Energy Efficient Sheathing
Rboard is a cost-effective, energy efficient sheathing material that can serve as a component for an exterior wall assembly. Each rigid foam continuous insulation board has a specially-coated non-reflective glass reinforcement facer on both surfaces. The non-reflective product can be used behind multiple claddings, such as wood, brick, vinyl, CMU or stucco.
Water Blown Closed-cell Insulation
ProSeal Eco is a 100 percent water-blown medium-density closed-cell spray foam. The product is set to change how the construction industry uses closed-cell spray foam insulation thanks to the product’s environmentally responsible formulation and wide commercial application possibilities. As a 100 percent water-blown medium-density closed-cell spray foam insulation, the product does not include any ozone-depleting blowing agents. Moreover, it is a smarter replacement for chemically-based medium density, closed-cell spray foam insulation products for architects and designers seeking a more environmentally sound option. In addition to its positive environmental footprint, the insulation has significantly expanded the number of commercial assembly approvals allowing it to maximize the use of closed-cell spray foam insulation in commercial applications.
