As the building sector alone accounts for approximately forty percent of all energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, transforming the industry is critical to addressing climate change. At Dow Building Solutions, we’re leveraging more than sixty years of building science expertise to drive solutions that help address this pressing global challenge. Our innovations enhance energy efficiency for the life of the building; helping to curb escalating utility bills and reduce a building’s carbon footprint, which results in higher-performing, more sustainable buildings.
Uncontrolled air leakage through the building envelope will affect the performance of the building materials within the wall assembly. The Air Shield line of air barriers from W.R. Meadows includes fluid-applied air barriers, sheet membranes, and vapor-permeable formulations.
PERMINATOR 10 and 15 mil under-slab vapor barrier now features one of the highest puncture resistance ratings in the market. This puncture resistance makes the product even more durable and tough against job site hazards, such as rebar penetration or damage from workers walking. PERMINATOR’s puncture resistance, plus its low perm rating, makes it the most complete under-slab vapor barrier on the market.
Atlas EnergyShield® rigid wall insulation is a closed-cell polyisocyanurate foam core, faced with a reflective foil facer on the front and a non-reflective, red acrylic-coated facer on the back. Walls insulated with EnergyShield® combine high R-value, durable foil facers, and water-resistant attributes in a high-performance, rigid insulation board. EnergyShield® wall insulation is suitable for a variety of continuous insulation (CI) applications.
Plasti-Fab® provides its customers with expanded polystyrene (EPS) product solutions used for constructing energy efficient buildings, as flotation for marine construction, as lightweight fill and compressible fill for geotechnical construction projects, and as component solutions for original equipment manufacturers.
Plasti-Fab EPS provides excellent insulating qualities that cost effectively reduce energy consumption required for the heating and cooling of buildings. Its products are key components used in buildings to assist owners in qualifying as LEED® certified buildings or Net Zero Energy Homes.
