SPF Insulation Achieves ICC-ES Report and GREENGUARD Certification

DuraTite 2.0, a closed cell spray polyurethane foam insulation recently introduced by Rhino Linings Corp., has been issued an International Code Council Evaluation Services Report and has earned GREENGUARD indoor air-quality certifications.

“We’re excited to bring this new spray foam product to market, and these third-party certifications provide assurance to the quality and performance of the product for builders, architects and code officials,” says Pierre Gagnon, president and CEO of Rhino Linings.

ICC-ES provides unbiased, third-party technical evaluations of building products. In the construction industry, the Evaluation Service Report, ESR 3556, lets architects, specifiers, contractors and building inspectors know that a product meets all required life safety and building codes.

DuraTite 2.0 also earned UL Environment’s GREENGUARD certification and GREENGUARD Gold certification which means it complies with stringent chemical emissions standards set by UL Environment for indoor air quality. Products with GREENGUARD Certification are compliant with emissions levels for more than 360 VOCs plus a limit on the total of all chemical emissions combined. GREENGUARD Gold certification means the product meets additional safety factors to account for sensitive individuals, such as children and the elderly, and ensures that the product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and health-care facilities.

DuraTite 2.0 is a 245fa-blown spray foam insulation for buildings. The product has been formulated so that it can be applied on substrates with a wide temperature range, which means it can easily be applied in extremely hot and extremely cold climates. Because it is a closed cell insulation, DuraTite 2.0 spray foam insulation is an ideal choice for these climates and for specific applications where vapor drive is a concern.

DuraTite 2.0 spray foam seals and insulates in one step, providing an installed R-value of 6.3 at 1 inch and an installed R-value of 26 at 4 inches. In addition to helping reduce the amount of energy it takes to heat and cool your building, DuraTite 2.0 spray foam insulation also integrates 3 percent bio-based content and 3 percent pre-consumer recycled content in the finished foam.
