Lapolla Industries, Inc. announced it has partnered with Honeywell and Purdue University to incorporate Lapolla’s 4th generation wall foam insulation into Purdue’s ReNEWW Net-Zero Home Project.

Lapolla’s FOAM-LOK 2000-4G incorporates Honeywell’s Solstice® Liquid Blowing Agent (LBA), which causes closed-cell spray foam insulation to expand and provides the majority of the foam’s superior insulating properties. Lapolla recently announced they were the first globally to offer an approved wall foam system with 4th generation technology. FOAM-LOK 2000-4G was used to retrofit a residential home in West Lafayette, Ind. marking the first time their next generation technology would be used in a wall foam system in the United States. Whirlpool Corp. has also recently adopted Honeywell’s foam blowing agent technology in their U.S.-based refrigerator manufacturing for high-efficiency appliances.

Whirlpool Corp. and Purdue University have worked together to transform this 2,800 square foot home built in 1928 into a net-zero energy home that will house a world-class research laboratory. Read more here.
