Sustainability and LEED

WALLTITE® is the first closed-cell spray polyurethane insulation to obtain the EcoLogo™. North America's most widely recognized multi-attribute environmental certification. Its criteria include minimal levels of recycled content and the promotion of products that conserve resources.

Any product and service can claim to be environmentally friendly. The EcoLogo program provides consumers with the assurance that the product bearing the EcoLogo is better for the environment and that the manufacturer has been audited by a credible third party.

WALLTITE meets the stringent requirements of the GREENGUARD Certification and GREENGUARD Gold Certification, thus ensuring safety.

Embodied Carbon

BASF creates chemistry for a sustainable future. WALLTITE CM01 uses blowing agents based on hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) with significantly lower global warming potential (GWP) compared to HFCs. WALLTITE CM01 is the next generation of spray foam insulation.
Carbon graph

The above table compares the GWP of various insulation products (installed product; not just the blowing agent) using data from EPD’s (Environmental Product Declarations). It clearly shows that WALLTITE CM01 has a very low GWP compared to other plastic foams using HFC blowing agents and lower than insulations thought to be “green” such as Semi Rigid Mineral Wool.

The installed GWP of WALLTITE CM01 will often be even lower than shown since it has multiple functions and eliminates the need for other components such as full coverage air and vapour barriers that also contribute to the embodied carbon of the building. The next generation of closed cell SPF can reduce your carbon footprint, enhance your building’s energy efficiency, and continue to earn points towards LEED certification.
