High-Performance XPS Insulation

Foamular® NGX™

Build above the rest

Canada and a growing number of U.S. states have committed to eliminating use of high-Global Warming Potential (GWP) HFC blowing agents, an important contributor to climate change. Owens Corning celebrates this important step by introducing FOAMULAR® NGX™ (Next Generation Extruded) insulation, produced with a proprietary blowing agent that goes well beyond most regulations. The new formulation and production process meets or exceeds new, more stringent regulatory standards without sacrificing product performance. FOAMULAR® NGX™ will be available beginning January 1, 2021, across all of the US and Canada.
