BASF Offers Online Course on Efficient Roofing Insulation
BASF, the Chemical Company, is offering a new course called “Sustainable Design: Eco-Efficiency of Roofing Insulation Systems” in its virtual classroom, the Online Campus for High-Performance Construction.
The one-hour interactive online course covers several popular roofing insulation systems, including: expanded polystyrene (EPS), polyisocyanurate (Polyiso) extruded polystyrene (XPS) and sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF), discussing the influences each has on sustainable design.
The course is divided into three sections and addresses sustainable development, insulation systems, and technical, environmental and economic aspects. It compares different plastic insulation systems, providing some technical points on each system. It also explains the use of eco-efficiency analysis.
“We created the Online Campus for High-Performance Construction to help industry professionals more quickly adopt proven solutions that make construction more sustainable,” said Jack Armstrong, Leader Construction Markets for BASF in North America.
“To BASF, that means increasing energy efficiency, speed of construction and project durability that can translate directly into more profit for the builder and more value for the owner through lower utility and maintenance costs.”
Other courses that have been posted on the BASF campus are:
- High-Performance EIGS for Sustainable Construction
- Sealant Repairs That Last: Hybrid Sealants for Building Restoration
- Concrete Additives: Water-Repellency and Efflorescence Control in Masonry
- High-Performance Green Buildings: New Materials and Methods
