Atlanta, Georgia – Demilec won the CPI Polyurethane Innovation award 2018 for its Heatlok HFO spray foam grades.
The company described the materials as a zero ODP, ultra-low GWP closed-cell foam with high renewable/recyclable content.
Demilic has been part of Huntsman since May this year.
Demilec said its Heatlok HFO High Lift product has insulation or R value of 7.5/inch. It 'provides breakthrough alternatives for the residential builder', the company added. Its Heatlok HFO Pro is designed for commercial buildings with an R-value of 7.4/inch. In use, it creates an air barrier, vapour retarder, water barrier and can provide R 7.4/inch thermal insulation.
'Demilec is honoured to receive CPI’s innovation award for 2018', said Doug Brady, vice president of strategic marketing.
'Thank you to the American Chemistry Council, the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry, the nominating committee and everyone who voted for Demilec'.
The other finalists included ICL-IP Americas' VeriQuel R100. This is a phosphorus-based, reactive flame retardant that eliminates exposure during product use.
Meanwhile, the other runner up was SWD Urethane with its Quik-Shield 108YM spray foam.
The company said the product is an ultra-low-density open-cell spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation product. It has a cured density of 0.36 lbs/cu ft (5.7 kg/m3) with an R value of 3.6/inch. It's low density provides applicators up to 39% more yield than conventional 0.5 lb/cu ft spray foams.
