Owens Corning Foamular NGX insulation
By Anthony Capkun
November 22, 2020 – The proprietary blowing agent in Owens Corning’s new Foamular NGX (next generation extruded) polystyrene (XPS) foam products promises a 90% reduction in global warming potential (GWP) “without sacrificing product performance”.
This addition to the company’s Insulation portfolio is UL Listed and Factory Mutual (FM) Approved, says Owens Corning, with a low GWP that ensures compliance with regulations set to take effect in Canada and some U.S. states in January 2021.
The environmental benefits of Foamular NGX will be reflected in a new Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), delivering independent and registered verification of the material’s environmental impact across its entire life cycle.
The new product is available for specification across Canada and the U.S., and will be available for sale January 1, 2021. The new product line will retain the signature Pink colour.
