Known mostly as an upstream materials supplier to several industries, including building products, Covestro LLC’s latest step was directly into the housing realm with the launch of its new PUReWall™ wall panel system.
Assembled in a quality-controlled factory setting, PUReWall™ panels are designed to reduce construction time, material waste and labor costs for builders and framing contractors. The walls combine a 2x4 or 2x6 structural wood frame with closed-cell cavity insulation and exterior rigid foam panel insulation for superior thermal performance.
The development of this next-generation wall panel system was a collaborative effort between Covestro and IBACOS – both located in Pittsburgh and sponsors of the Housing Innovation Alliance.
“The PUReWall™ system offers numerous benefits for panelizers, builders and homeowners,” says Jim Lambach, manager of Building and Construction, Industrial Marketing, Polyurethanes, Covestro LLC. “It simplifies on-site construction and provides a better wall assembly for homeowners.”
