Sto Corp. to Offer Choice of Insulations for StoTherm® ci XPS Wall System
Building Materials Manufacturer to Offer Foam Board from Owens Corning™ and Dow®
Atlanta, Georgia – April 3, 2017
Sto Corp., the innovative world leader in cladding, air barriers, panelization, coatings and restoration systems announced today that the company is now partnered with two of the insulation industry’s leading vendors, Owens Corning and Dow, as suppliers for a key component of its technically advanced StoTherm ci XPS exterior wall system. This means that Sto customers will now have two options when choosing the durable, high-R-value, extruded polystyrene (XPS) rigid foam insulation that resists water absorption and significantly contributes to the energy-efficiency of the Sto ci wall.
StoTherm ci XPS is an integrated, continuous-insulation wall system with a fluid-applied StoGuard® air and moisture barrier that is air-and moisture controlled, thermally-efficient and highly durable due to the XPS insulation. It helps cut energy costs, reduces maintenance expenses and adds value by offering designers a variety of aesthetic choices thanks to a wide range of decorative and protective finish appearances (such as EIFS, Stucco, Limestone, Brick and smooth- or water-repellant surfaces), available in virtually unlimited colors.
The high R-Value of the XPS insulation board facilitates the design of thinner walls, and its low deflection value of L/240 enables lighter construction – reducing overall weight and cost per square foot.
“We are pleased to have both Owens Corning and Dow as a partners in providing a key component of our continuous insulation system,” said Brian Chang, Director of Product Marketing and Channel Management for StoCorp. “The arrangement will be highly beneficial to our customers, who will now be able to specify which insulation vendor best meets their needs.”
