    As I set at a comfortable 72 degrees, inside, I know many are dreading the next electric
    bill due to our 100 plus days. Our AC is running at an efficient 45% cycle. Thanks to correct engineering.

    Insulation should be part of a off grid home, to most it is a hit or miss thing.

    Demilec’s New Heatlok HFO Pro® Spray Foam
    Leads the Industry with an R-Value of 7.4 at 1 Inch

    Shatter the “Status Quo” with the New Heatlok HFO Pro®

    Arlington, Texas – Heatlok HFO Pro® spray foam from Demilec Inc., is the latest technology in the Heatlok HFO® closed-cell spray foam series, leveraging Honeywell Solstice® liquid blowing agents. Designed on the molecular level to specifically address the challenges of today’s building envelope, Heatlok HFO Pro® spray foam is certified by the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) for adhesion to most air barrier materials and achieves an R-11 to exceed ASHRAE 90.1 continuous insulation requirements at 1.5 inches. In addition, Heatlok HFO Pro® spray foam provides a vapor retarder (less than 1 perm) at 1-inch thickness, a full 35 percent thinner than current Demilec materials, providing moisture vapor control within the exterior cavity.

    “Why design a building to just meet today’s code standards? Design for the lifecycle of the building and the performance needs of the future. With Heatlok HFO Pro® technology, you can advance the art of building design,” said Tom Harris, Vice President of Building Science, Demilec. “Specifying Demilec and our full line of insulating air barrier solutions not only reduces risk, but enhances the overall performance of the building envelope, creating satisfied building owners and buildings that go beyond code and performance requirements. Demilec is shattering the ‘Status Quo’.”

    Three years ahead of the Montreal Protocol, which bans the use of HFCs in gas filled plastic insulations, Demilec introduced the Heatlok HFO® line of products, eliminating the need to use HFC blowing agents. Heatlok HFO® spray foam leverages Honeywell Solstice® liquid blowing agent technology, an ultra-low GWP blowing agent used instead of the traditional blowing agents utilized by other spray foam manufacturers.

    The Demilec Building Science Group closely monitors International Building Code requirements to confirm that its products meet the highest possible standards. This allows construction companies and commercial design professionals to install and specify Demilec closed-cell spray foam products with confidence.

    Building industry professionals and business owners can learn more about the benefits of Heatlok HFO Pro® closed-cell spray foam by visiting and connecting with Demilec through social channels.

    When I built our house [2400 sq ft 40' by 60' steel structure], I sprayed 'handi-foam' on the ceilings and walls in two 1 inch layers, and then hung 9" of fiberglass batting over the foam. Here in Maine we do not see the low temps that they get up in Alaska, but we do normally see -20F every winter.

    Spray-on foam is well worth every penny spent on it.

    I need something I can spray (outside) on my concrete roof.

    You might consider neoprene sheets, they have a pretty good R value, and it's additive; you can layer them. The only color I know of is black, but you will want to coat it with a spray on membrane to keep any and all water out. We used white, but it's easy to tint..

    You can spray foam on the concrete and then coat the foam with elastomeric white coating.

    This is a common practice on flat roofs.

    Check with a local experienced foam applicator.
