Johns Manville Corporation Key Developments

Johns Manville Introduces polyisocyanurate Product Line, ENRGY 3.E

Johns Manville announced ENRGY 3.E, the polyisocyanurate (polyiso) product line. The new ENRGY 3.E product features the current polyiso performance attributes that customers have grown to depend on with the existing ENRGY 3, with one key difference: ENRGY 3.E is inherently fire-resistant and meets all current fire tests and codes without added halogenated flame retardants. JM researchers have incorporated a reactive polymer modifier that both improves the cell structure and properties of the foam as well as achieves the necessary fire resistance to meet UL(R) Class A fire ratings in low-slope roofing assemblies. In addition to offering ENRGY 3.E for applications where halogenated flame retardants are prohibited, JM will continue to offer its current ENRGY 3 polyiso product line for the majority of roofing applications. Like most polyiso products in the market, ENRGY 3 contains TCPP, a halogenated flame retardant added to achieve additional fire ratings. Both ENRGY 3 and ENRGY 3.E have comparable fire, mechanical and thermal performance characteristics and the high R-value per inch of any commonly used roofing insulation.

Johns Manville Announces Higher R-Value for JM Corbond III(R) Insulation in Canada

Johns Manville announced that JM Corbond III(R) closed-cell spray polyurethane foam insulation now offers a R-value of 5.9/inch (11.6 ft(2) /hr/(o) F/BTU LTTR), a change that translates to a 13% higher R-value compared to previous thermal performance of 5.1/inch. With the upgrade, JM Corbond III(R) has achieved a Type 2 R-value, which designates the level of thermal resistance for spray foam under the National Building Code of Canada. JM Corbond III now requires significantly less product to deliver the desired R-value. For example, to achieve R-38, contractors now need 6.4 inches of foam compared to 7.5 inches. It meets the code required for R-20 in a 2x4 wall configuration and the material standards set by the Standard Code Council of Canada (CAN/ULC S770). The new and improved product R-value is the result of formula optimization and general product improvements. The enhancement of JM Corbond III is effective immediately. JM Corbond III can be used alone or installed together with JM fiber glass insulation to create custom thermal solutions for residential, commercial and industrial applications. JM Corbond III insulation is a proven closed-cell foam building insulation, providing superior thermal, moisture and cold-temperature performance and dimensional stability. It can be applied at temperatures as low as -4 degrees Celsius (25 degrees Fahrenheit).
