EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Sept. 7, 2010 –The ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) has issued Henry Company an evaluation report (ESR 3024), providing evidence that Henry’s Permax® RT-2045 Series Resins, used in the manufacturing of Permax® 2.0 and 1.8 Sprayed Polyurethane Foam, meet code requirements. Building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and others utilize the ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide a basis for using or approving spray polyurethane foam insulations in construction projects following the International Code (I-Code).
ICC-ES President Mark Johnson explains why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important. “Henry Company can now reference the evaluation report to ensure building officials and the building industry that the Permax® RT-2045 Series Resins meet I-Code requirements,” Johnson said. “Building departments have a long history of using evaluation reports, and ICC-ES operates as a technical resource for the building department. Final approval of building products is always in the hands of the local regulatory agency.”
ICC-ES thoroughly examined Henry Company’s product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code compliant. Henry Company Senior Vice President, National Accounts and Business Development Tim Callahan stated, “Recognition of Permax 2.0 and 1.8 spray foam insulation as code compliant by ICC confirms the proven performance qualities of PERMAX® SPF, which has been marketed for more than 20 years for all types of building constructions.”
ICC-ES is the United States’ leading source of technical information on building products and building technology for code compliance. A nonprofit, public-benefit corporation, ICC-ES performs technical evaluations of building products, components, methods and materials. The evaluation process culminates with the issuance of reports on compliance with the major U.S. building codes, and are available at www.icc-es.org.
