Environmental Information

Since RAY-CORE's inception in 1987, energy efficiency and environmental influences have always been viewed as priorities in the manufacturing of structural insulated panels. By providing a product that reduces energy bills up to 60%, RAY-CORE is making a difference in hundreds of communities around the world.

Not only does RAY-CORE provide an energy saving SIPs roof panel, wall panel and insulated header system, we also look very closely at the material used to make the panel. RAY-CORE uses a foam insulation that is a non-Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP).

Unlike spray foam that emits millions of particles into the air during application and continues to off-gas during the curing process, which can take months or more, RAY-CORE's polyurethane foam is injected into a mold, which emits no particles, and encapsulates all the intended insulation properties. Heat is applied to speed up the curing process. Once a RAY-CORE SIP panel is made, it is in a finished state, cured and is emitting virtually no gases. Off gassing is not a topic of discussion for RAY-CORE's non-VOC and zero ODP foam. The RAY-CORE panel polyurethane foam is as safe as the polyurethane foam in the dashboard of your car, or the seat cushions at your desk.
