Typical wall assemblies offer numerous pathways for heat to exit through exterior walls. Heat lost through wall surface thermal bridging can add up to annual energy losses of 40%. Although some builders have offered energy-efficient projects as a premium feature to clients, code requirements often mandate this now.

Many builders are looking for simple solutions to prevent thermal bridging both to satisfy the demand for more energy-efficient projects and to comply with the latest energy codes without fundamentally altering building techniques. Optimum thermal insulation from Neopor® Continuous Insulation Sheathing (CIS) by BASF is the practical and economical way to reduce such losses and promote energy efficiency.

Neopor® CIS has excellent structural properties for thermal insulation of residential and commercial exterior walls. By using Neopor® CIS, builders can meet the latest energy codes and homeowners can benefit from the energy savings and increased home comfort.
