Benefit from the Best.
As one of the most widely used and readily available building products, Polyiso is a cost-effective insulation option for reducing building energy use and improving the overall service-life of roofs and walls
What are the benefits of Polyiso insulation?
High R-value per inch of thickness
Excellent fire test performance
Extensive building code approvals
Cost-effective continuous insulation (ci) solution
Compatible with most wall and roof systems
Thinner walls and roofs with shorter fasteners
Long service life
Compatibility with most solvents used in construction adhesives
A wide range of service temperatures
Zero ozone depletion potential
Recycled through reuse
Virtually no global warming potential
QualityMark certified LTTR values
Value Added Insulation.
Does Polyiso have a high R-value?
Polyiso has a high R-value per inch when compared to other insulation products, see chart below. This allows Polyiso products to deliver more energy savings potential for buildings than other materials of the same thickness.

What is LTTR?
Based on consensus standards in both the United States and Canada, Long Term Thermal Resistance (LTTR) is a scientifically supported method to calculate the 15-year, time-weighted average R-value of roof insulation. All Polyiso manufacturers of the Polyisocyanurate Insulation Manufacturers Association (PIMA) have adopted the LTTR method as the exclusive means to measure thermal performance of permeable-faced Polyiso roof insulation. PIMA Polyiso manufacturers have certified LTTR-value products verified by the QualityMarkcm Program.
What is QualityMark?
The PIMA QualityMark Certification program is a voluntary program that allows Polyiso manufacturers to obtain independent, third-party certification for the Long Term Thermal Resistance (LTTR) values of their Polyiso insulation products. Polyiso is the only insulation to be certified by this unique program for its LTTR value. The program is administered by FM Global and was developed by the Polyisocyanurate Insulation Manufacturers Association (PIMA) based on work done at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and CAN/ULC- S770.
