Energy Shield® is the most cost effective, energy efficient sheathing material available in the marketplace. R-values range from 3.0 to 21.7, depending on thickness. Energy Shield® offers several "green" qualities, including zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and zero Global Warming Potential (GWP) due to Atlas Blowing Agent Technology. When properly installed, Energy Shield® wall insulation will provide added insulation and yield immediate energy savings in both Commercial and Residential applications.
Energy Shield® is manufactured with trilaminate facers (foil-kraft-foil) on the top side and a trilaminate or solid foil facer on the unprinted back side. Energy Shield® can help meet or exceed the Model Energy Code, (see ASHRAE Standard below) and is available in a variety of thicknesses.
Atlas polyiso has been tested for VOC and formaldehyde emissions, in which reported emissions were below the maximum emission levels allowed under both the GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD Schools and Children criteria. These tests confirm that Atlas polyiso insulation materials are all very low-emitting products.
