Houston, Texas – Icynene-Lapolla has launched a new open-cell spray polyurethane foam insulation system. Lapolla Foam-Lok 750 is designed to meet building code and energy efficiency requirements in high-performance homes.
Icynene-Lapolla adds new open-cell SPF grade
The SPF achieves R-22 in 2x6 wall assemblies. The company says that, at a core density of 0.75-pound, the open-cell foam is air impermeable, and optimised to help strict building code requirements to be met.
The professionally spray-applied product achieves a more controllable rise during application, the company said, creating a neater appearance with no need for trimming. It also provides good interlaminar cohesion between lifts.
The foam’s soft, flexible composition maintains a continuous air seal, even after seasonal expansion and contraction of the building occurs, the company claimed. Its composition and density provide sound control from one side of the wall to the other.
‘We expect Lapolla Foam-Lok 750 to be well received among builders and contractors seeking an insulation solution for new homes designed specifically to enhance energy conservation and savings,’ said Doug Kramer, president & CEO of Icynene-Lapolla. ‘Not only is energy efficiency top-of-mind with homeowners and buyers today, but building codes increasingly demand better energy solutions. Foam-Lok 750 is one such solution.’
