Spring, Texas - With the average temperature in Montreal, Canada swinging between 23 deg and 79 deg F, a development from Bayer MaterialScience llc is going to be valuable. Canadian architects, contractors and building owners now have the option to meet requirements under the National Building Code of Canada and provincial codes for effective, high-performance insulation in this demanding environment -- EcoBay Closed Cell (CC) CAN and EcoBay CC Arctic CAN spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation.
These materials have a Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC) evaluation listing for their conformance to the Canadian standard CAN/ULC-S705.1-01 as a Type 2 insulation.
The standard defines requirements for two types of medium-density SPF insulation. Type 1 insulation requires a lower tested long-term thermal resistance, while under the Canadian standard, Type 2 insulation materials must exhibit a thermal resistance of 2.0 RSI or greater at 50 mm.
The two EcoBay materials are among a very limited group of Type 2 medium-density SPF with CCMC evaluation listings.
"CCMC provides a crucial service for Canadian contractors and architects. They see the most innovative building products being developed and use the latest technology and expertise available to evaluate those products," said Jose Luna, technology manager, Bayer MaterialScience Spray Insulation and Roofing Materials, in a company statement.
