Additionally, the global polyurethane foam market has witnessed multiple innovative product launches that have contributed to the growth of the market. For instance, in April 2019, Icynene-Lapolla had launched Lapolla Foam-Lok 750. Lapolla Foam-Lok 750 was launched to address the better energy solution to meet the building code and energy efficiency requirement of high-performance homes, owing to its core density of 0.75-pound which makes it highly air-permeable. Moreover, in February 2019, Icynene-Lapolla had launched Icynene Open-cell No-Mix insulation. The no-mix is a two-component light-density one-to-one by volume spray. This product launch was done to address the rising demand for no-mix insulation owing to its utility in new and retrofit home and commercial applications. In December 2018, Thermoseal had launched Thermoseal 360 and Thermoseal 800. Thermoseal 360 is ultra-high yield open-cell spray foam insulation. Whereas, Thermoseal 800 is a new ultra-high R-value open-cell spray foam. The company had launched these innovative sprays to get an edge over other competitors in the highly competitive market of spray polyurethane foams.
