Icynene-Lapolla, a global supplier and manufacturer of high performance, energy efficient insulation for construction, today introduced Lapolla FOAM-LOK 750 Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation. The open-cell system provides an ideal solution for high-performance homes designed to meet stringent building code and energy efficiency requirements.
Lapolla FOAM-LOK 750 achieves R-22 in 2x6 wall assemblies. At a core density of 0.75-pound, the open-cell foam is air impermeable and optimized to help builders meet strict building code requirements.
“We expect Lapolla FOAM-LOK 750 to be well received among builders and contractors seeking an insulation solution for new homes designed specifically to enhance energy conservation and savings,” said Doug Kramer, president & CEO of Icynene-Lapolla. “Not only is energy efficiency top-of-mind with homeowners and buyers today, but building codes increasingly demand better energy solutions. FOAM-LOK 750 is one such solution.”
In addition to its exceptional R-Value, FOAM-LOK 750 also provides a number of additional benefits. The professionally spray-applied product achieves a more controllable rise during application, creating a neater appearance, with no need for trimming. This attribute saves the contractor on clean-up and overall time on the job. It also provides great interlaminar cohesion between lifts.
FOAM-LOK 750’s soft, flexible composition maintains a continuous air seal, even after seasonal expansion and contraction of the building assembly occurs. The insulation’s composition and density also offers superior sound control, dramatically reducing the noise heard on either side of the insulated wall.
“While energy performance remains a key selling point for this product, the numerous additional benefits such as sound attenuation and reduced contractor application time are also major benefits not to be ignored,” added Kramer.
