HOUSTON, TX — (BUSINESSWIRE) — September 12, 2013 — Lapolla Industries, Inc. (“Lapolla”) (OTCQB:LPAD), a Houston based global supplier, and manufacturer of spray polyurethane foam insulation and elastomeric protective coatings, and equipment designed to reduce energy consumption in the residential, industrial and commercial markets, for both new construction and retrofit applications, announces passing the Wet Wall Test and opening up of pathways to international growth opportunities for its injection foam.
Douglas J. Kramer, CEO and President of Lapolla commented “Europe has a uniquely challenging insulation condition with age-old construction involving narrow hard to reach cavities. Lapolla’s injection foam addresses that condition and fills the historic void. Passage of this test enables Lapolla to supply the Mark Group with the equipment and injection foam required to meet the niche market need. There are approximately 7 million residential buildings in need of upgraded insulation in the United Kingdom alone.”
The Wet Wall Test is designed to evaluate a wall’s resistance to moisture intrusion during the most severe weather conditions and ensure that rainwater will not be able to enter the interior of a structure through the exterior wall, while providing exceptional insulation and improving the stability of the structure.
Bill Rumble, Chief Commercial Officer from Mark Group says “I am delighted that Lapolla has passed this rigorous test. It’s an important milestone that takes us a big step closer to tackling the millions of properties that would benefit from their pioneering system.”
