Houston, TX, February 23, 2016Lapolla 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 Industries Partners With White House to Reduce Harmful Greenhouse Gases and Fight Climate Change

Lapolla Commits to Eliminating High-GWP HFCs in Products by 2016

HOUSTON–At a ceremony this week in Washington, DC, The White House announced Lapolla Industries, Inc. (OTCQB:LPAD) as an official private sector partner of the President’s Climate Action Plan, recognizing the company’s efforts to curb the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), which are potent greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. Lapolla is a Houston-based manufacturer and global supplier of spray polyurethane foam insulation, reflective roof coatings, and equipment designed to reduce energy consumption in the residential, industrial and commercial markets. Under its commitment, Lapolla will transition its entire product line of foam and coating systems to no longer use high-GWP HFCs by 2016. Lapolla will also provide more than 18 seminars on the importance of eliminating high-GWP HFCs from the environment.

This commitment follows Lapolla’s recent announcement that they have become the first manufacturer globally to offer a third party tested and approved wall foam system that uses the Solstice® Liquid Blowing Agent. Lapolla achieved this fourth generation benchmark while working closely with Honeywell to incorporate the Solstice® LBA, a next-generation blowing agent from 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.

“We deeply appreciate the recognition of the White House for our efforts in curbing HFC usage in our products,” said Doug Kramer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lapolla Industries. “For us, the decision to commit ourselves to end the use of high-GWP HFCs by 2016 was obvious. The impact of this new technology is profound – this is simply the best and most environmentally-friendly product in the marketplace, and we’re proud to be the first global supplier of an approved next generation wall foam system using Solstice® LBA.”

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.

Other private sector partners taking part in White House’s effort to limit the proliferation of harmful greenhouse gases include corporate giants such as Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Coca-Cola, Kroger, and Target.

Lapolla Industries’ AirTight® Division Launches Energy Savings Program For Multi-Family Residential Properties

Leading Spray Foam Insulation Company’s New Program Allows Property Owners and Landlords to Save up to 50% on Energy Bills

HOUSTON–April 28, 2014–Lapolla Industires, Inc. (“Lapolla”) (OTCQB:LPAD), a Houston-based global supplier and manufacturer of spray polyurethane foam insulation, reflective roof coatings, and equipment designed to reduce energy consumption in the residential, industrial and commercial markets for both new construction and retrofit applications, today announced the launch of its AirTight® division’s Energy Savings Program for multi-family residential properties.

Lapolla’s AirTight division primarily focuses on marketing, promoting, and selling energy saving products and energy reduction services. AirTight has created a proprietary, end-to-end energy savings program that is specifically designed to address multi-family residential properties throughout the United States. This retrofit energy conservation program, conceived and put into place by the Company’s Chairman, Richard J. Kurtz, can save landlords approximately 50 percent in annual energy costs while dramatically reducing the properties carbon footprint, increasing the tenants comfort, as well as increasing the overall value of the property.

To date, there are approximately 22 million apartments throughout the United States of which approximately 8 million apartments have the property owner paying the entire heating expense for a calendar 12 month period. The program’s main focus will be these 8 million apartments.

The AirTight Multi-Family program consists of two fundamental components. First, each property’s building envelope — the separation between the interior and the exterior environments of a building — is encapsulated and insulated with Lapolla’s cutting-edge technology polyurethane spray foam. Second, the AirTight team overseas the installation of a turn-key technology package on site at each property. This package consists of wireless thermostats and apartment controls in each unit, high efficiency hot water heaters, modern high-tech boilers, and high efficiency lighting throughout the building among other energy saving technologies.

“Individually, each element of this program is proven to contribute to energy savings and reducing a building’s environmental footprint,” stated Richard J. Kurtz, Chairman of Lapolla Industries. “But consolidating each component into an end-to-end retro-fit program brings incredible value to the building owners and environment, and we believe this solution will address an enormous untapped demand in the market.”

“As the CEO of the Kamson Corporation, I manage and maintain more than 85 multi-family residential buildings in the North Eastern United States. I can say confidently, along with insurance and real estate taxes, energy utilities are one of the three largest expenses landlords and property managers are repeatedly subjected to today. As such, my team and I have tested this program on my properties, and have experienced consistent reductions in energy costs of approximately 50 percent on an annual basis. We are confident that this program will be successful and anticipate interest from major U.S. property managers and real estate developers going forward,” concluded Mr. Kurtz.

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.

Home builders and renovators around the world recognize Lapolla’s brand as having one of the most varied and comprehensive product suites of energy-saving spray foam solutions to offer customers, both commercial and residential.
