HOUSTON — Icynene-Lapolla has introduced its all-new Lapolla FOAM-LOK 450 Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation. 

An open-cell solution for homes and commercial structures, the high-performance material is notable for providing high yield and enhanced energy efficiency, passing benefits to builders, contractors and building owners. 

FOAM-LOK 450 is a superior insulation for use in attics, cavity walls and over metal and other critical insulation areas. The professionally installed spray foam seals the structure providing a continuous air barrier. These performance characteristics reduce heating and cooling demands and the ongoing costs associated with them. 

FOAM-LOK 450 eliminates air infiltration, which can cause as much as 40 percent of energy loss — a characteristic that inherently outperforms fiberglass and blown-in insulation options. 

The installed costs in many circumstances is cost competitive with traditional insulations and can potentially offer a return on investment through reduced energy consumption. Additional product benefits include noise attenuation and reduced air leakage contributing to the control of moisture and durability.

FOAM-LOK 450, like other Lapolla open cell insulation products, adheres to framing members and substrates and can be used to fill stud wall construction in a single application. Additionally, it conforms to the AC 377 End Use Configuration Criteria and therefore meets building code requirements for use with no additional ignition barrier required.

Icynene-Lapolla is a global supplier and manufacturer of high performance, energy efficient insulation for construction.
