Demilec’s Heatlok XT Spray Foam Insulation Raises Industry Bar for Sustainability

Our new Heatlok XT spray foam combines increased yield performance with enhanced sustainability.

Arlington, Texas, October 13, 2015 - Demilec is proud to introduce Heatlok XT, our newest closed-cell spray foam insulation product. Heatlok XT contains over 20 percent of recycled and renewable content, making this high-quality product more sustainable than ever.

Heatlok XT

Yield of Heatlok XT has increased more than 10 percent over out other closed-cell offerings. The product’s winter formulation can be sprayed at temperatures as low at 10 degrees Fahrenheit – the lowest in the spray foam market – making it an excellent choice for spray season. In addition to this cold-climate temperature range, the product’s sprayability has also been increased. To save on application time, a 2” -on- 2” application can be achieved, meaning that within seconds of spraying a 2-inch section of foam, another layer can be sprayed over the first.

In addition, Heatlok XT has increased fire resistance. The Heatlok XT formulation scored a zero in fire resistance and flame spread during ASTM-E-84 testing, the standard test used to determine the surface burning characteristics of building materials. What this rating means is that the product is effective at completely inhibiting the ability of a flame to spread from one surface to another.

Use of this product can now earn residential and commercial construction projects as many as 10 LEED certification points.

According to Douglas Brady, the Vice President of Strategic Marketing at Demilec, “We are continuously improving and rigorously testing our spray foam products to ensure the highest standards and to achieve sustainable and cost effective solutions. For example, since launching our recycled bottle program in 2004, Demilec has recycled more than 300 million plastic bottles into our Heatlok family of closed-cell insulation products.”
