Demilec Launches Heatlok ABS, The Industry’s First Complete Air Barrier
and Spray Foam Insulation System
Architects and contractors now have a single source for a spray foam air
barrier system including insulation and transition membrane; Demilec Heatlok
ABS System meets or exceeds industry performance requirements
Arlington, Texas, May 22, 2017 - Demilec, one of the largest manufacturers of spray applied polyurethane
foam in North America, has launched Heatlok® Air Barrier System (ABS), the industry’s first complete air barrier
and spray foam insulation system.
“Until now, a single source of supply has been missing in the air
barrier industry. 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,”
said Tom Harris, Vice President – Building Science at Demilec, which
has supplied Heatlok insulation to millions of square feet of cavity wall
applications throughout North America for more than 20 years.
“Previously, architects and general contractors were faced with conflicting
information and no single authority about membranes and spray foam insulation.
From concept to close, Demilec now provides the right level of input and
experienced turnkey support needed to execute their design intent,”
Heatlok ABS products include Heatlok ABS Membrane (40mm) for summer and
winter applications in 6”-36” widths, as well as Heatlok ABS
Primer and Heatlok ABS Mastic, which are designed as a base for exterior
insulation, used in conjunction with Demilec’s Heatlok XT and Heatlok
Soy 200 Plus spray foam insulation products. Additionally, the membrane
can be used as the primary air barrier system under more typical insulations,
board-stock for example, creating a solid airtight barrier against air
infiltration and exfiltration thereby minimizing issues associated with
energy loss and condensation.
Demilec Heatlok ABS has been fully tested by independent laboratories and
exceeds the performance requirements of the Air Barrier Association of
America (ABAA), ASHRAE 90.1, the Canadian Government Standards for Insulation
Material, CAN/ULC S705.1, Insulation Standards - CAN/ULC S705.2 and Air
Barrier Assemblies - CAN/ULC S742.
Additionally, Demilec provides a manufacturer’s inspection program
and supports third-party independent inspections through the ABAA.
