|Includes: Lapolla Industries, Inc. (LPAD)

Lapolla Industries, a global supplier and manufacturer of spray polyurethane foam insulation and elastomeric protective coatings, as well as energy consumption-reducing equipment for both new construction and retrofit applications, announced it has passed the Wet Wall Test. Passing this test will open up international growth opportunities for the company's injection foam.

Lapolla's injection foam addresses a uniquely challenging insulation condition in Europe relating to age-old construction that features narrow, hard-to-reach cavities. Passing the Wet Wall Test allows Lapolla to supply the Mark Group, a United Kingdom-based company focused on providing a "whole house" solution for energy efficiency, with the necessary equipment and injection foam to meet the needs of this niche market. Approximately 7 million residential buildings in the U.K. alone are in need of upgraded insulation.

The Wet Wall Test is a rigorous test evaluating a wall's resistance to moisture intrusion during the most extreme weather conditions, also ensuring that rainwater will not be able to penetrate the interior of a structure through the exterior wall. Walls must also provide excellent insulation and improve a structure's stability.

Passing the Wet Wall Test enables Lapolla to move closer to its goal of tackling the millions of properties that are in need of this pioneering system.

Lapolla Industries is a worldwide supplier and manufacturer of spray foam insulation and elastomeric protective coatings. The company also provides equipment that is designed to reduce energy consumption in residential and commercial markets for both new construction and retrofit applications.
