Corporate + Startup Partnership
Building Envelope Materials has developed and commercialized Pinhole Insulation™, a minimally invasive retrofit insulation technology that results in 25 percent energy savings in existing buildings.
Building Envelope Materials has been engaged with CertainTeed/Saint-Gobain since 2014 to develop new materials for its Pinhole Insulation™ technology and for CertainTeed’s related COMFORTFILL™ technology. Together, they have insulated about 30 buildings.
