MARCH 25, 2014 – SUCRASEAL™ ACHIEVES UNDERWRITERS LABORATORY APPROVAL FOR EXTERIOR WALL COVERINGS (EWS0007) IN ACCORDANCE WITH NFPA 285. SES Foam has achieved Underwriters Laboratory (UL) approval for Sucraseal™ spray polyurethane foam insulation in compliance with the National Fire Protection Agency Standard 285 (NFPA 285). Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is the universally accepted certification mark for electronics, lightning suppression and fire protection. UL’s mission statement states: “Working for a safer world, since 1894.”
“SES continues to strive to the highest level of certification,” says Charles Valentine, Chief Operating Officer of SES Foam. “UL is the best known, most respected name in certification and the fact that Sucraseal™ spray foam insulation meets UL requirements illustrates the SES commitment to quality and higher product qualification,” continues Mr. Valentine.
The International Building Code (IBC) requires combustible materials within exterior wall systems to be tested to NFPA 285 for construction types I and II (non-combustible construction). For the commercial architect it is important to verify the specified insulation complies with building codes and seeing the UL mark confirms the product is held to the highest certification requirements.
SES continues to demonstrate their commitment to higher levels of certification. Sucraseal™ is already recognized by the USDA Biopreferred program (at 17% bio content by ASTM D 6866); the International Code Council Evaluation Services, including passing the Appendix X test without an intumescent coating; certified by The Collaboration for High Performing Schools as a low emitting product and the United States EPA certification as an EnergyStar™ Approved Insulation. SES Foam is an approved EnergyStar™ partner and member organization of the United States Green Build Council.
