Homesulate foam insulation was developed by a leading chemical company in 1966 for use as a fire resistant thermal and acoustical insulation product to be utilized in commercial and residential structures.
In 1975, Homesulate™ foam products and their characteristics were expanded and refined with the help of a grant, provided by the United States Department of Energy, under the Federal Non-Nuclear Energy Research and Development Act of 1974 (Public Law #93-577).
Recognizing the inherent shortcomings of polyurethane and urea formaldehyde foams, the D.O.E. chose Homesulate™ foam as one of three products from a total of 7,000 to assist in further development. After three years of intense research and testing, Homesulate™ wall foam greatly surpassed all of the D.O.E. expectations, and was made available for commerce.
