BASF's Walltite Eco PU foam insulation recognized at Concours Écoconception 2012

Walltite Eco is a medium-density polyurethane foam insulation/air barrier system designed to improve the energy efficiency of buildings. As a spray applied system requiring no fasteners, it maximises the performance of the building envelope and allows heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to operate more efficiently, helping reduce energy costs. "Walltite Eco helps builders meet the highest standards of sustainable construction," said Pierre Couture, Business Manager, Polyurethane Spray Systems for BASF Canada. "We appreciate this recognition by the Concours Écoconception." Walltite Eco was the first closed-cell spray polyurethane insulation to obtain the EcoLogo, a widely recognised multi-attribute environmental certification. The EcoLogo's criteria include aggressive rates of recycled content and the promotion of products that conserve resources. EcoLogo is a trademark of UL TerraChoice. This product has also been certified under the "Greenguard Children & Schools Certification Program” for indoor air quality of Greenguard Environmental Institute.
