What kind of foam does Eco-Panels use?

All foam is not created equal, so it’s important to understand what kind of foam insulation is being used in the structural insulated panels that you choose.

  • SIP panel manufacturers use various types of foam to create the insulated core of their panels.
  • Eco-Panels of Tennessee uses a Polyurethane foam core that we feel provides several benefits.
  • Our foam has NO VOC’s and no formaldehydes.
  • Our foam does not melt at any temperature, allowing our product to provide a Class 1 fire rating.
  • Our foam offers a much higher R-Value per inch than EPS (Styrofoam).

Hi, I’m Rob with Eco-Panels of Tennessee.

I want to talk to you a little bit about foam.

There’s lots of different kinds of foam that can be used in structural insulated panels. We’ve tried several of those and we’ve chosen this one specifically and here’s why.

Eco-Panels of Tennessee only uses the most advanced closed cell polyurethane foams on the market today. Our highly efficient insulating and structural foam core offers almost twice the R-Value, or thermal resistance, of expanded polystyrene foam or styrofoam.

Using a poly alcohol base derived from post-processed sugar beets, our custom blended foam will never melt, is fire retardant to a class 1, and has post-consumer recycled content. Our foam has; no global warming potential, no ozone depleting potential, no styrenes, no formaldehyde, no volatile organic compounds, and no brominated flame retardants that’s commonly used with regular styrofoam.

In 2019 our foam passed the California Department of Public Health’s strictest indoor quality standards for school classrooms, private offices, or single-family residential construction.

Choosing a SIP panel with the right foam is important for the safety and health of you and your family.

If you would like to find out more about our foam, or the different products that we use, or that we manufacture at our plant in Hermitage Springs, Tennessee, we invite you to contact us anytime.
