MOUNT AIRY, NC—Aldo Products Company, a world leader in the innovation of coating products for construction and roofing, has selected NCFI as authorized North American distributor of it’s new ALDOCOAT 800 Ignition Barrier Protective Coating®.
ALDOCOAT 800 is a breakthrough interior intumescent coating developed for use over closed-cell and open-cell spray polyurethane foam insulation. The product is a water-based latex, single component, one coat application with no VOCs, that inhibit the start and spread of flame encountered on the surface. ALDOCOAT products are designed and used by the spray foam insulation industry to meet residential building codes that require an ignition barrier over spray foam insulation in uninhabited areas such as attics and crawlspaces.
“Over the past 25 years we have built a solid reputation in the spray foam industry,” says Bob Brenk, president of Aldo Products. “Our products are also used in a variety of building applications—reflective roofing, waterproofing, roof restoration—but our ALDOCOAT intumescent technology platform was specifically formulated for spray foam insulation application.”
According to Brenk, the agreement with NCFI is a logical choice. “NCFI is an excellent company. They’ve been a leader in the spray foam insulation industry since 1967. We’ve been working with them for decades on exterior foam roof coating applications and the past six years on ignition barriers. NCFI exemplifies what we look for in a partner: great scientific and technical expertise, industry leading products, a reputation for the highest business integrity, and a solid leadership team. It was a simple choice to trust them to help us distribute our next generation product.”
Nelson Clark, senior vice president of NCFI, says, “Aldo Products is the leader in manufacturing the very best intumescent coatings, bar none. Their flagship product, ALDOCOAT 757, helped the spray foam industry meet the increased demand for what most experts are calling the future of U.S. building. Like its predecessor, ALDOCOAT 800 is an easy-to-apply, single component, one coat application ignition barrier that fully cures within 24 hours providing a protective shield over the spray foam against surface ignition. We are very excited about the future of this new, highly innovative product.”
Clark adds, “We’re honored Aldo Products selected NCFI to distribute ALDOCOAT 800 for the North American market. We look forward to helping spray foam insulation trade contractors achieve ‘best practices’ results and continue to help America build better.”
