“We are incredibly excited and grateful for the recognition afforded us with this award. It is the culmination of a number of years of development work and has enabled Demilec to offer our contractors and builders a solution to meet virtually every energy code and insulating requirement, whilst still using conventional construction techniques. Our HFO Pro is designed for exterior applications to meet continuous insulation requirements from the basement and up the walls, then HFO High Lift in the attic, creating a virtual cocoon that protects almost the entire structure from the outside elements,” said Paul Valle, President of Demilec.
Demilec’s Heatlok HFO family of products uses Honeywell’s Solstice® liquid blowing agent with ultra-low global warming potential and Non-Ozone-Depleting blowing agent. Heatlok HFO High Lift and Heatlok HFO Pro recently won the coveted 2018 CPI Innovation Award and 2018 Home Builder Executive Gold Innovation award for their high R-values of 7.5/inch and 7.4/inch, respectively. Heatlok HFO High Lift can be sprayed at 6.5” for an R-49 in a single pass. While Heatlok HFO Pro is a certified ABAA air barrier, vapor retarder, water barrier and thermal insulation; ideal of continuous insulation.
Aside from thermal efficiency, both products feature other environmental benefits. Heatlok HFO products are composed of a total of 19% recycled and renewable content. To date, Demilec has been responsible for recycling more than 560 million plastic bottles for manufacturing.
