Demilec’s New Heatlok HFO Pro® Spray Foam
Leads the Industry with an R-Value of 7.4 at 1 Inch
Shatter the “Status Quo” with the New Heatlok HFO Pro®
Arlington, Texas – (June 14, 2018) Heatlok HFO Pro® spray foam from Demilec Inc., is the latest technology in the Heatlok HFO®
closed-cell spray foam series, leveraging Honeywell Solstice® liquid blowing agents. Designed on the molecular level to specifically
address the challenges of today’s building envelope, Heatlok HFO Pro® spray foam is certified by the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA)
for adhesion to most air barrier materials and achieves an R-11 to exceed
ASHRAE 90.1 continuous insulation requirements at 1.5 inches. In addition,
Heatlok HFO Pro® spray foam provides a vapor retarder (less than 1 perm) at 1-inch thickness,
a full 35 percent thinner than current Demilec materials, providing moisture
vapor control within the exterior cavity.
“Why design a building to just meet today’s code standards?
Design for the lifecycle of the building and the performance needs of
the future. With Heatlok HFO Pro® technology, you can advance the art of building design,” said Tom
Harris, Vice President of Building Science, Demilec. “Specifying
Demilec and our full line of insulating air barrier solutions not only
reduces risk, but enhances the overall performance of the building envelope,
creating satisfied building owners and buildings that go beyond code and
performance requirements. Demilec is shattering the ‘Status Quo’.”
Three years ahead of the Montreal Protocol, which bans the use of HFCs
in gas filled plastic insulations, Demilec introduced the Heatlok HFO® line of products, eliminating the need to use HFC blowing agents. Heatlok HFO® spray foam leverages Honeywell Solstice® liquid blowing agent technology, an ultra-low GWP blowing agent used instead
of the traditional blowing agents utilized by other spray foam manufacturers.
The Demilec Building Science Group closely monitors International Building
Code requirements to confirm that its products meet the highest possible
standards. This allows construction companies and commercial design professionals
to install and specify Demilec closed-cell spray foam products with confidence.
