Lapolla Industries’ 4th Generation Foam Recognized in Green Builder® Media
FOAM-LOK™ 2000-4G Hot 50 Products 2016 Editor’s Choice
Houston, TX, February 23, 2016 – Lapolla Industries, Inc. (“Lapolla”) (OTCQB: LPAD) – a Houston-based global supplier and manufacturer of spray polyurethane foam insulation and other energy saving products, today announced being selected in the Hot 50 Products, 2016 Editor’s Choice in the Annual Awards Issue of Green Builder® Magazine.
Doug Kramer, CEO and President of Lapolla, stated “Lapolla made a commitment to reduce the use and emissions of potent greenhouse gases known as hydrofluorocarbons (HCFs) in its energy efficient spray foam products. We have done just that with our Next Generation 4G Technology.”
“We applaud Lapolla’s dedication to reducing carbon emissions and using sustainable materials,” says Green Builder Media CEO, Sara Gutterman. “Lapolla is setting an example for manufacturers of all kinds with respect to analyzing the impact of their products and manufacturing processes.”
”Being selected in the Award-Winning Coverage of Sustainable Construction, Products and Lifestyles Green Builder Magazine, speaks volumes about Lapolla being a leader in the private sector developing new technologies addressing the issues in President Obama’s Climate Action Plan by creating more climate-friendly products that are less harmful to the environment,” Mr. Kramer concluded.
Lapolla is the first manufacturer globally to offer a third party tested and approved wall foam system that uses the Solstice® Liquid Blowing Agent, a next-generation blowing agent made by Honeywell. The product not only improves foam performance, but also delivers environmental benefits. Solstice® LBA has an ultra-low global warming potential of 1, which is 99.9 percent lower than today’s most commonly-used blowing agent, HFC-245fa, a hydrofluorocarbon, while retaining its insulating performance. Solstice® LBA is nonflammable, has received EPA approval under the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program and is not a volatile organic compound.
Lapolla’s foam products include spray foam insulation for residential and commercial perimeter walls, crawl spaces and attic space applications. The Company also supplies spray foam and elastomeric coatings for low slope residential and commercial roofing. Lapolla supplies polyurethane as an adhesive for board stock insulation to roofing substrates for commercial and industrial applications as well as sundry items.
