Leading homebuilding publication selects Demilec as a two-time Gold Innovation
Award winner, recognizing its industry groundbreaking product achievements
October 4, 2017 - Demilec, one of North America’s largest manufacturers of spray
foam insulation and polyurea products, has earned
Home Builder Executive magazine’s 2017 Gold Innovation Award for its industry leading product
developments, including Heatlok HFO High Lift spray foam insulation and
Heatlok Air Barrier System (ABS). The award recognizes companies that
promote excellence in homebuilding practices by instituting new products,
initiatives and technologies into the marketplace and communities.
“This is the second consecutive year that Demilec has been recognized
as one of the top industry innovators by
Home Builder Executive. Earning this award encourages us to keep surpassing market expectations
while we find new ways to protect the environment and save our customers
most valuable resource — time,” said Doug Brady, Vice President
of Strategic Marketing at Demilec.
Demilec’s Heatlok HFO High Lift is the company’s first product
formulated with Honeywell’s Solstice Liquid Blowing Agent, a hydrofluoroolefin
(HFO) molecule that reduces its Global Warming Potential (GWP) to 1 --
99.9% lower than the HFC blowing agents it replaces. With its high-performing
green components, Demilec’s Heatlok formula can earn commercial
and residential projects up to ten LEED certification points.
In another first for Demilec and the industry, Heatlok ABS is the only
complete air barrier and spray foam insulation system. Previously, architects
and general contractors were faced with conflicting information and no
single authority about membranes and spray foam insulation. Demilec has
taken a much-needed systems approach to material testing and installation
to now offer architects and contractors perfectly-matched spray foam insulation
and air barrier materials that have been independently tested and approved
as a single system.
Additionally, Heatlok ABS creates a solid airtight barrier against air
infiltration and exfiltration thereby minimizing issues associated with
energy loss and condensation.
