Arlington, Texas -- Demilec USA says its Sealection Agribalance and Heatlok Soy 200 foams have passed various wind tests, including the TAS-202 Static Air Pressure Test, as well as exceeding the performance criteria of the TAS-203 Cyclic Wind Pressure Test for both Florida and Miami-Dade County.
Demilec adds that Sealection Agribalance is the first open-cell foam to pass the stringent tests and be eligible for use as a hurricane adhesive, and as a high R-value spray-foam insulation.
Heatlok Soy 200 passed the TAS-203 testing with over three times the minimum code requirement for a hurricane adhesive, and exceeded the capacity of the test equipment, causing the chamber to fail, the company commented.
These tests prove that the materials bond the roof deck and trusses together effectively, helping to prevent storm damage and provide increased wind uplift resistance, Demilec added.
"We've always known that Demilec's products add to the structural integrity of the building," said Dave Feitl, national sales manager for Demilec (USA). "We now have verified third-party proof of their strength through independent lab testing," and this covers hurricanes, tornadoes and any high wind conditions.
The Demilec foams also provide a high R-value insulation that can be used to insulate the entire structure without switching to a different insulation product.
