JetBoard™: The World’s Most Innovative Building Material
February 14, 2014 – The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) named JetBoard™ the “Most Innovative Building Material” on February 6th at the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas. Over 1,700 companies showcased their materials to over 75,000 attendees, yet only JetBoard™ received the “Most Innovative” honor. The NAHB award comes on the heels of another recent achievement: JetBoard™ just acquired approval for structural use within the International Building Code (IBC) and the International Residential Code (IRC).
“The award is yet another indicator that the construction industry is embracing the many benefits that JetBoard™ offers from fire protection to mildew and mold resistance. Unlike many conventional boards, JetBoard™ is completely non-toxic; builders don’t have to worry about inhaling toxic dust and it’s great for homeowners with allergies and chemical sensitivities.
Once installed, JetBoard™ becomes what we call ‘a fireman in the wall.’ It literally fights fires by releasing water chemically bound within the board,” said Jim Wambaugh of JetProducts™.
In addition to improving people’s lives, JetBoard™ is truly a green building material. It’s manufactured using extremely low energy input, with minimal waste that has similar properties to cattle feed and can then be used for fertilizer. This green manufacturing process – which involves patented formulations and tested chemical processes – is in part what sets JetBoard™ apart from similar products.
