Report ensures Heatlok HFO High Lift is in compliance with international
building and energy conservation codes
August 29, 2017 - Demilec, one of the largest manufacturers of spray applied polyurethane
foam in North America, received certification by the International Code
Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) for its Heatlok HFO High Lift closed-cell
spray foam insulation, the company’s first product to eliminate
high global warming potential (GWP). The ICC-ES certification officially
confirms that Heatlok HFO High Lift is in compliance with the 2009, 2012
and 2015 International Building Codes (IBC), International Residential
Codes (IRC) and International Energy Conservation Codes (IECC).
“Final testing certification demonstrates Demilec’s commitment
to helping architects, builders and contractors specify the right products
for their projects and to ease their minds about how our spray foam insulation
fits within international building codes and energy conservation regulations,”
said Doug Brady, Vice President of Strategic Marketing at Demilec.
The International Code Council Evaluation Service conducts technical evaluations
of building products, components, methods and materials to ensure that
they meet code compliance and enforce building regulations, providing
regulators and construction professionals with clear evidence that the
evaluated products and materials comply with codes and standards.
Heatlok HFO High Lift spray foam insulation is Demilec’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.
Additionally, Heatlok HFO High Lift benefits contractors by allowing up
to six and a half inches of foam to be applied in one pass, saving time
and reducing the need for multiple passes to achieve the required insulation
thickness or R-values set by building codes.
