ARLINGTON, Va. — The Polyisocyanurate Insulation Manufacturers Association (PIMA) announces the launch of its redesigned website. With an updated layout, content and features, the website now offers enhanced navigation that is accessible across all device platforms.
“As an important resource for technical details and educational tools about polyiso insulation and its applications on roofs and in walls, an easily navigable website is critical, whether you’re accessing it from a computer or a hand-held device,” said PIMA President Justin Koscher. “Our members rely on the technical information found on our site and regularly send their customers to it. With a new layout and organization, we believe the updated polyiso.org site will help expand the knowledge of architects, consultants, building owners and roofing contractors.”
The website features a variety of resources that include:
- Building Codes: Details and fact sheets about building codes at the state and national level in the United States and in Canada.
- Applications: Information about the application of polyiso insulation on commercial and residential roofs and walls.
- Technical and Performance Bulletins: More than 35 technical and performance bulletins with up-to-date technical and industry information about the performance characteristics of polyiso insulation.
- CEU Education Courses: A number of AIA CEU courses on the use of polyiso continuous insulation, reroofing and environmental product declarations.
The new website comes at a great time for the industry. For the decade ending Dec. 31, 2019, more than 54 billion board feet of polyiso insulation products were manufactured and shipped. PIMA estimates over 69% of the U.S. population now lives in cities and jurisdictions that have adopted modern energy codes.
“The more than 54 billion board feet of polyiso reflects the resurgence of construction activity since 2010 and an ever-increasing demand for high R-value insulation products that meet today’s standard for energy-efficient buildings,” said Koscher.
