Third-party tests conclude that builders and contractors can save time
and money using Demilec’s Sealection 500 as high-performing barrier.
Arlington, Texas, June 14, 2016 – After rigorous third-party testing, Demilec’s Sealection
500 open-cell spray foam insulation has been approved for use in unvented
attics without the need for an ignition barrier, which effectively eliminates
the need to hire a contractor to add a secondary ignition barrier in these
applications. A contractor need only follow the requirements of Intertek
CCRR 1063 issued for Sealection 500 when installing spray foam insulation
in an unvented attic.
Demilec now offers two options for spraying open-cell without the need
for an ignition barrier: APX 1.2 for assemblies requiring a traditional
ACC 377 Appendix X certification and Sealection 500 for unvented attics.
An innovative open-cell spray foam insulation formula, Sealection 500 expands
120 times its liquid volume to insulate and seal all joints, gaps, and
cracks in one application at an R-value of 3.81 at 1 inch. The product
is engineered to improve energy efficiency, cutting cooling and heating
costs in half for many homeowners. This product also prevents ozone-depleting
chemicals like asbestos, fibers, and gases from being released into the
air, making it a sustainable choice for residents and occupants.
According to Douglas Brady, Vice President of Strategic Marketing at Demilec
Inc., “We are committed to providing products that serve our customers’
needs, as well as to help them save time and money on the jobsite. Being
able to spray Sealection 500 in an unvented attic without an ignition
barrier is a key element in broadening an already strong open-cell product
line for builders, contractors, and property owners.”
