Owens Corning Showcases Forward-Looking Building Products At International Builders' Show

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Since 1938, Owens Corning has been a pioneering provider of customer solutions – helping to create a better tomorrow by enhancing the lives of homeowners today.  As the company celebrates seven and a half decades as a global leader in the building industry, it unveils its newest high-performance innovations at the 2013 International Builders' Show ® (IBS) in Las Vegas.

Owens Corning continues to raise the bar for both builders and contractors with products that combine comfort and energy-efficiency with beauty and cutting-edge performance. Highlights at the Owens Corning IBS booth (#C5025) include: 

EnergyComplete ® Sealant

Whether to satisfy homebuyer demand or to achieve code requirements, builders today are under increasing pressure to meet strict energy efficiency tolerances without sacrificing reputation. Owens Corning's EnergyComplete ® Sealant combines building science intelligence and solutions to help builders achieve these objectives.

In a groundbreaking study, the Owens Corning Building Science team identified specific exterior joints where air is most likely to enter and escape from a home through vulnerable gaps, cracks and seams – accounting for up to 40 percent[1] of the energy used for heating and cooling. This insight inspired the design of the exclusive formula and equipment used in EnergyComplete ® sealant.

The expanding foam penetrates deep into joints and openings to help prevent energy loss by air exchange. It also reduces the chance of mold growth by keeping airborne moisture from entering wall cavities and creates a first line of defense against insects and other pests.

The only air-sealing solution that creates a gasket to meet 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) requirements, EnergyComplete ®  sealant easily reaches the most vulnerable gaps/cracks that can't be accessed post drywall and also allows easy access to all top plates pre-drywall and even under the roof truss. The flexible sealant delivers a safe, high-performance solution that lasts for the life of a home.

Total Protection Roofing System™

The key to a high-performance roof is the system of roofing components built behind it. Since homeowners are more engaged in researching and specifying the products they will purchase, Owens Corning Roofing has given its complete roofing system an unmistakable identity. Debuting at IBS 2013, the Total Protection Roofing System™[3] is the collection of all essential Owens Corning™ Roofing components and layers that are designed to work together to maximize a roof's performance and durability.
