HOUSTON - Lapolla Industries, Inc. (“Lapolla”), a Houston based manufacturer and supplier of spray foam insulation, cool roof coatings and equipment designed to reduce energy consumption in the residential and commercial markets, for both new construction and retrofit applications, announced achieving European Technical Approval and CE Marking for its low density open cell spray foam insulation.

A European Technical Approval (ETA) for a construction product is a favorable technical assessment of its fitness for an intended use. In conjunction with an Attestation of Conformity (AC) procedure, ETAs allow manufacturers to place CE marking on their products, which is a key indicator of a product’s compliance with EU legislation and enables the free movement of products within the European market. By affixing the CE marking on a product, a manufacturer is declaring conformity with all of the legal requirements to achieve CE marking and therefore ensuring validity for that product to be sold throughout the European Economic Area.

According to Lapolla’s President and CEO, Doug Kramer, “Lapolla’s achievement of an ETA for its Foam-LOK™ FL 500 product in Europe and corresponding CE marking opens up a multitude of sales channels and ensures access to EU markets. The global demand for energy savings has Lapolla and its distribution partners in an ideal position. Lapolla expects international distribution channels to continue to grow aggressively in the near term.”

The first Lapolla Global Summit was held in April 2011 in Amsterdam and attended by distributors representing 16 countries from Europe, Scandinavia, Middle East and Africa. The Summit provided extensive coverage of Material Safety, Handling and Environmental, Marketing and Sales Strategy with the Lapolla brand as the common global thread. Plans are underway for the Lapolla Global Summit - 2012. For more information, visit www.lapolla.com.
