Fasten rigid insulation sheathing, WRB, vapour and air control layers to framing with just one type of fastener.

936 Manages Air Leakage
ASTM Tested: Air Leakage for Building Envelopes and Air Barrier Systems.

Hygrothermal Analysis - 936 Manages Moisture

Hygrothermal analysis examines the intrinsic movement of heat, air and moisture flow through building enclosures. Hygro refers to water, and thermal refers to heat. Heat can’t be managed without managing moisture. Increasing the thickness of insulation also increases the risk of moisture, mold and material degradation.

R-Value Performance. R-22+ Effective.

“Quik-Therm Insulation Solutions Inc. has undertaken a program of full scale thermal performance testing to ASTM C1363-05 Standard Test Method for Thermal Performance of Building Materials and Envelope Assemblies. Testing confirmed the presence of the plywood furring strips did not significantly affect the thermal performance of the assembly …” – Morrison Hershfield

R-Value Testing Results

Weatherize Exterior Walls and Rim Joists in One Application

  • Tested to ASTM C1363. Achieves Effective R-13.
  • Eliminates Thermal Bridging at Floor Joists.
  • Seals Foundation to Rim Joist Connection.
  • Low Cost. Saves Time. Superior Performance.

National Building Code of Canada

Is 936 Connect NBC code compliant for homes in Canada?

Yes! Article 9.23.17.1. Required Sheathing Table 9.23.17.2.-A, Wall Sheathing and Thickness and Specifications accepts Quik-Therm Connect in lieu of plywood, OSB and gypsum as a sheathing material in a Part 9 building.

Commonly Asked Code Questions

Environmentally Responsible. Sustainable.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is 98% enclosed air within a 2% polymer matrix. The blowing agent employed during the EPS manufacturing process is pentane. Pentane is neither a CFC nor an HCFC. EPS is inert and non-toxic and has received an A rating for most environmental matrices. Connect is approximately 97% EPS, 2% plywood, 1% polymer faced film. Connect may contain up to 15% recycled EPS.
