Brand Insulation Ensures Efficient Performance
When energy efficiency in a home is important, more builders are turning to DOW STYROFOAM™ brand insulation as the leader in outstanding performance and value. SBS carries two of DOW’s polyisocyanuarate products - Super TUFF-R Commercial and VALUE-R for interior insulation applications. Local builders report this product is stronger than other insulation they’ve used. So tough, that it receives minimal damage when getting it out to the job site.
STYROFOAM brand insulation controls moisture better than housewrap because it moderates the thermal differences that create condensation in wall cavities. Because it’s moisture-resistant, the product doesn’t absorb and transmit moisture into the wall, where it can do damage. It gets rid of mold and mildew problems by controlling moisture through physics.
Super TUFF-R is a commercial grade, patented, high-performance foam core sandwiched between a choice of durable, exterior faces, offering the highest insulation value of any foam sheathing. It includes patented, three-ply poly/aluminum foil faces laminated to the core, resulting in unsurpassed durability. One face is painted black and the other face is radiant barrier quality reflective foil. These faces not only prevent intrusion by water and water vapor, they also provide a durable surface that can be nailed, stapled or glued. SBS carries Super TUFF-R in 1/2-inch, 3/4-inch and 1-inch, 4-foot by 8-foot sheets.
VALUE-R is a polyisocyanurate foam insulation board with radiant barrier and quality reinforced aluminum foil faces on both sides. SBS carries VALUE-R in 1 1/2-inch and 2-inch, 4-foot by 8-foot sheets.
Builders who put STYROFOAM brand insulation over OSB, save money on batt insulation and increase the R-value within the wall. By staggering the product over OSB joints, air drafts and leaks are minimized, as is the need for a housewrap product.
DOW has more than 50 years of experience and is the original developer of extruded polystyrene insulation. Builders who use Dow Building Materials report their homes are more energy efficient and that they receive fewer callbacks, resulting in more satisfied buyers.
