Construction Marketplace Tuesday, January 21, 2020 1 8 Quality and Speed Matter with Evaluation Reports By Linda Tejeda, Administrative Coordinator, ICC Evaluation Service ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) is the top choice for manufacturers in perform- ing technical evaluations for code com- pliance. In addition to providing the highest quality evaluation reports in the industry, ICC-ES also delivers some of the fastest service with a current median project turnaround of two months. Because quality and speed matter when it comes to your project, ICC-ES has made it a priority. Customer satisfac- tion is of the utmost importance – in fact, surveys indicate a minimum 97 percent customer satisfaction rating for the past three years. ICC-ES achieves this by pro- viding a streamlined product evaluation process and personalized customer care to increase the speed and turnaround time of every report. The ICC-ES Expedited Service pro- gram is another value-added option for new reports and revisions for those man- ufacturers needing the highest priority. ICC-ES is the only entity with direct contact with IBC/IRC code development staff, and the only evaluation service who is a part of an entity (International Code Council ® ) who publishes the building codes for the nation. Our team of knowledgeable engineers are happy to help. Applications are available at www.icc-es.org/applications.

Kooltherm K9 Internal Insulation Board from Kingspan Kingspan Insulation has introduced the new Kooltherm ® K9 Internal Insulation Board that is ideal for basement, crawl space, attic and habitable space wall applications. It is suitable for both new build and retrofit projects and is fast and easy to install. Insulating interior habitable space walls can improve a home's energy effi- ciency, provide substantial energy cost savings, keep rooms more comfortable and prevent moisture problems. The materials you choose are very important to prevent mold in habitable space walls. Kooltherm K9 Internal Insulation Board can help you build a better basement or finish an existing basement and can help stop the conditions that promote mold growth. It is a cost-effective alternative to spray foam and in colder climates, installing interior basement wall insula- tion will almost always result in lower energy bills and a healthier, more com- fortable home. Kooltherm K9 Internal Insulation Board is installed directly to interior space concrete walls and can provide reliable long-term thermal per- formance over the life- time of the home. Its high R-value allows for increased internal floor space, and unlike other rigid insulation, it is NFPA 286 compliant; for exposed inter- nal applications and does not require a protected layer of drywall. The core of Kingspan Kooltherm K9 Internal Insulation Board is a premium performance rigid thermoset fiber-free, phenolic insulant, manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP). It offers an R-value of 17 on 2 inches, outstanding fire and smoke performance, and is unaffected by air infil- tration. Kingspan Kooltherm K9 Internal Insulation Board has a glass tissue based facing, adhesively bonded to the insu- lation core during manufacture. It is available in standard sizes or can be ordered in custom lengths and comes in R-values ranging from 10 to 33.5.
