Lapolla Industries, Inc. launched the its new FOAM-LOK FLX 500-EM Spray Polyurethane Foam for Insulation. The next generation “Easy-to-Mix” open-cell spray applied foam produces ultra high yield and is recognized for its ability to reduce energy consumption in the structure and enhance energy savings.
“FOAM-LOK FLX 500-EM is a low density, ultra high yield insulation material that provides exceptional value both to contractors and the customers they serve,” said Doug Kramer, president and CEO of Lapolla Industries. “Not only does the product reduce installation costs, but it also improves indoor comfort and provides homeowners up to 45 percent savings on their energy bills over the life of the home.”
FOAM-LOK FLX 500-EM Spray Foam may be applied in one step, Kramer noted. He said the product meets stringent AC377 Appendix X requirements and eliminates a contractor’s need to return to the site to apply an ignition barrier.
“It was important to us that this product meet true fire safety criteria established by the International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) to provide true peace-of-mind to all contractors and customers,” added Kramer.
The insulation material reduces moisture penetration, while increasing thermal performance in the structure. The eco-friendly properties of the product help homeowners reduce their carbon footprint.
