HP+ &trade Wall System XR Series improves structure, efficiency
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 2, 2105 - BASF Canada Inc. announces the official Canadian product launch of its HP+TM Wall System XR Series at Construct Canada, as part of its commitment to provide innovative materials to the Canadian construction industry.
The HP+ Wall System XR Series allows builders to use a system with improved structural integrity, reduced air leakage and superior thermal efficiency, while potentially reducing the amount of materials used in construction. Builders use the HP+ Wall System XR Series to construct walls that are no thicker than conventional walls, with seamless integration into conventional construction projects.
"Our builders who use HP+ Wall System XR Series found it saves time and allows them to remain consistently ahead of schedule. It's a new and simple way to give the builder a competitive edge," said Pierre Couture, Business Development Manager with BASF Canada Inc. Performance Materials. "Builder training is conducted directly on their site, and the system has already been successfully implemented in multiple homes and a three-storey condominium building."
The product's specifications meet the requirements for energy-efficient design and construction in the National Building Code ofCanada. The System has been designed to meet or exceed requirements for a nominal R-value of up to 45.8.
