HOUSTON — HOUZE Advanced Building Science Inc. has announced the launch of ZERO Foam, the most advanced closed-cell spray foam insulation on the market. The announcement of this new product is the result of a strategic partnership with global spray foam manufacturer and distributor, Lapolla Industries Inc.

Formulated and manufactured by Lapolla, HOUZE’s signature ZERO Foam locks in energy savings by adding a high R-value insulation system to the comprehensive building envelope. This advanced insulation may be spray applied to any shape and substrate using Honeywell foam blowing agent, Enovate. Once applied, ZERO Foam seals the building envelope to eliminate air infiltration, enhance structural integrity and protect against moisture, allergens and pollutants. This foam can dramatically improve the performance and energy efficiency of homes and buildings.

“HOUZE is blazing a trail in zero-energy building systems and technologies,” Lapolla President and CEO Doug Kramer said. “We are thrilled to partner with them on the development and global distribution of ZERO Foam, because together, we intend to continually innovate to stay ahead of the industry, and produce products that will change the performance of homes and buildings.”

ZERO Foam is the highest-rated foam, boasting a full-line of credentials that include an E-84 Class I fire rating, International Code Council approval, and many other global approvals in Europe and Scandinavia.

“Today’s consumers want homes that are energy efficient, long lasting, safe and comfortable to live in,” Honeywell Global Marketing Manager Laura Reinhard said. “Many architects, builders and homeowners are turning to closed-cell spray polyurethane foam (ccSPF) formulated with a Honeywell foam blowing agent as the preferred insulation and air sealant for residential construction and renovations. Using ccSPF, like HOUZE ZERO Foam, can improve energy efficiency through its air sealing and insulation properties.”

HOUZE Labs is currently working hand-in-hand with Lapolla and Honeywell on research and development of cutting-edge insulation technologies. For more information, visit www.houzefoam.comor www.lapolla.com
