INSULATING THE FUTURE: HOUZE Announces Global Launch Of ZERO Foam™ And Strategic Partnership With Lapolla Industries Inc.

HOUSTON, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HOUZE® Advanced Building Science Inc. is revolutionizing the way homes are built through its standard-setting zero-energy building systems and innovative energy solutions. And now, HOUZE is poised to take their zero-energy products one-step further, with the launch of ZERO Foam™, the most advanced closed-cell spray foam insulation on the market. The announcement of this new product is the result of a strategic partnership with leading global spray foam manufacturer and distributor, Lapolla Industries Inc.

Formulated and manufactured by Lapolla, HOUZE's signature ZERO Foam locks in energy savings by adding an exceptionally high R-value insulation system to the comprehensive building envelope. This advanced insulation may be spray applied to any shape and substrate using Honeywell foam blowing agent, Enovate®. Once applied, ZERO Foam then seals the building envelope to eliminate air infiltration, enhance structural integrity and protect against moisture, allergens and pollutants. HOUZE ZERO Foam can change the performance and comfort of every home in any climate and dramatically improves the energy efficiency of homes and buildings.

"HOUZE is blazing a trail in zero-energy building systems and technologies," said Doug Kramer, President and CEO of Lapolla Industries. "We are thrilled to partner with them on the development and global distribution of ZERO Foam, because together, we intend to continually innovate to stay ahead of the industry and produce products that will change the performance of homes and buildings."

While contributing to the building envelope by providing unparalleled R-Values, durability, comfort, sustainability and air quality, ZERO Foam is a proven leader. The product is the highest-rated foam boasting a full-line of credentials that include an E-84 Class I fire rating, International Code Council approval, and many other global approvals in Europe and Scandinavia.

"Today's consumers want homes that are energy efficient, long lasting, safe and comfortable to live in," said Laura Reinhard, global marketing manager, Honeywell Spray Foam. "Many architects, builders and homeowners are turning to closed-cell spray polyurethane foam (ccSPF) formulated with a Honeywell foam blowing agent as the preferred insulation and air sealant for residential construction and renovations.  Using ccSPF, like HOUZE ZERO Foam, can improve energy efficiency through its air sealing and insulation properties."

Enabling continuous improvement for future generations of ZERO Foam, HOUZE Labs is currently working hand-in-hand with Lapolla and Honeywell on research and development of cutting-edge insulation technologies. By collaborating with industry leaders, HOUZE will continue to evolve and remain the leading system of systems on the market.
