Dow Styrofoam SIS


March 29, 2011
This article first appeared in the PR March 2011 issue of Pro Remodeler.

The innovative Styrofoam SIS Brand Structural Insulated Sheathing from Dow combines three functions in one product: Structural lateral bracing and transverse loads, significant insulation performance and a water-resistive barrier. It offers a high R-value (R-3.0 at 0.5 in.; R-5.5 at 1in.), reduced energy consumption, which in turn reduces greenhouse gas emissions, resistance to moisture intrusion and air infiltration, reduced installation time, labor and material; and eliminates the need for wood structural panels and housewrap.
