Foam-Control MAX™ Sheathing

Next generation insulation powered by graphite.
Foam-Control MAX™ is a next generation insulation product line with a maximum R-value powered by graphite. Foam‑Control MAX is a premium grade insulation manufactured to provide architects, specifiers, distributors, and contractors all the features and benefits inherent in a high quality insulation.

Foam-Control MAX Applications

Foam-Control MAX Sheathing Benefits

  • High R-value that never changes and is stable over time
  • High compressive strength of 10, 15, or 25 psi
  • Closed cell insulation with superior moisture resistance
  • High drying potential to rapidly release absorbed moisture
  • Helps eliminate wall cavity condensation
  • Meets code requirements for continuous insulation
Powered by Graphite.
Foam-Control MAX is comprised of many small pockets of air within a polymer matrix containing graphite. The graphite reflects radiant heat energy like a mirror, increasing the material’s resistance to heat flow or R-value.
