Lapolla Industries’ Spray Polyurethane Foam Receives ICC-ES Certification for Energy-Efficient Insulation

HOUSTON, TX — April 23, 2009 — Lapolla Industries, Inc.— Design professionals, contractors, building inspectors and engineers look for advanced insulation systems that not only offer energy-saving solutions but have a proven record of performance. With the announcement that Lapolla’s open-cell spray polyurethane foam insulation system has been reviewed by International Code Council (ICC) Evaluation Service, Inc.,  Lapolla Industries can provide affirmation that their open-cell spray foam insulation system branded Foam-LOK™ OC (FL500) and AirTight™ OC open-cell spray foam is a  high-performance insulation solution for residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.

ICC-ES is a nonprofit corporation that conducts technical evaluations of building products, components, methods and materials for regulatory agencies and building product manufacturers. ICC-ES reports help agencies determine code compliance and enforce building regulations, while manufacturers use reports as proof that their products meet code requirements and confirm regulatory approval.

Lapolla’s open-cell spray foam system is a spray applied nonstructural thermal insulation material used in wall cavities, floor assemblies, ceiling assemblies, and in attic and crawl space applications.  Open-cell foam insulation is a performance upgrade over conventional insulation that leads to energy efficiency, improved occupant comfort, a cleaner indoor environment, and greater noise reduction for building/home owners.

“Spray foam insulation is an important component in new building construction and the weatherization of existing buildings,” stated Doug Kramer, president and chief executive officer, Lapolla Industries. “The ICC-ES report demonstrates that Foam-LOK OC/AirTight OC open-cell spray polyurethane foam insulation meets acceptance criteria and key building code requirements,” said Kramer.

Foam-LOK and AirTight spray foam insulation systems are professionally applied by a vast network of spray foam contractors located across the United States.
