OX Optimizes Durability, Efficiency for Home Construction with Launch of New Technology at 2023 International Builders’ Show

Company Introduces Innovative Technology Creating a 5-in-1 Continuous Insulation

Publish Date: Monday, January 30, 2023

NORTHVILLE, MI (January 30, 2023) OX Engineered Products, manufacturer of industry-leading structural sheathing and thermal insulation, will unveil a new technology that can be applied to its insulation products during its time as an exhibitor at the 2023 International Builders’ Show (IBS), taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center January 31 through February 2, 2023. The new Integrated Drainage Plane (IDP) technology will be available on the company’s OX-IS and ISO RED ci® products. This development makes OX-IS the first of its kind: a game-changing 5-in-1 structural continuous insulation.

“At OX, we put a premium on innovation – from the durability and reliability our products offer to the efficiencies they generate during the construction process,” said Todd Gluski, director of marketing at OX Engineered Products. “When you can take multiple exterior wall control layers and consolidate them into one product, you save a great deal of time, money, and coordination, and that represents a true value proposition to construction professionals of every kind.”

The new IDP technology effectively turns the high-performance 4-in-1 OX-IS into a 5-in-1 product by adding a textured water-repelling drainage plane as the material’s facer. The integrated product combines five layers into one: the new drainage plane, continuous insulation, structural sheathing, an air barrier, and a water-resistive barrier.

IDP technology can also be applied to ISO RED ci, a rigid polyiso insulation product used to increase energy efficiency in ceilings and interior and exterior walls. The product adds much-needed R-value to residential and light commercial construction projects.

“IDP technology is the latest example of our commitment to serving our customers’ most pressing needs at a time when the residential construction industry faces headwinds from economic uncertainty and builders continue to look for ways to deliver on their customers’ demands,” added Gluski. “We look forward to demonstrating the game-changing features of our products to IBS attendees so they can make informed decisions as they select the best products for their projects.”

OX will be located at Booth C2649 in the central hall the convention center.
