Firestable™ Insulation Company has entered the building insulation market with patented, directly code-compliant, NFPA-275 thermal barrier closed-cell spray foam insulation that immediately meets the International Building Code® (IBC) upon application without the need for an additional thermal barrier. QAI Evaluation Services has issued a product certification for FS 2.0 closed-cell foam to Firestable Insulation Company for its compliance with NFPA 275 as well as IBC 2603.9 special approval.
The Firestable technology is the first-of-its-kind NFPA-275 and IBC 2603.9 certified single-application spray foam insulation, as well as air, vapor, and water barrier. Firestable FS 2.0, as soon as cured, meets the IBC code. It can be left exposed immediately after installation without fire risk, eliminating time and costs to install gypsum board or other fire-protective products, such as intumescent coatings. Firestable FS 2.0 is applied with conventional spray foam equipment currently used throughout the industry today.
This new entrant into the SPF world will be providing leading-edge industry solutions to the market through their Firestable and Stablebase™ insulation product lines from multiple plant locations. Other potential applications will span numerous industries beyond SPF, including pour-in-place, structurally insulated panels; fire-rated doors and garage doors; industrial, automotive, and oil and gas industries; and many more.
