BETHLEHEM, PA--(Marketwired - August 02, 2016) - Atlas® Wall CI, a division of Atlas Roofing Corporation (atlasroofing.com), has joined AltusGroup, a partnership of 21 innovation-focused North American precasters, as its seventh Innovation Partner. Atlas Wall CI primarily focuses on innovative residential and commercial building materials, including EnergyShield® polyisocyanurate (polyiso) foam board products.
AltusGroup's Innovation Partners are among the concrete industry's best-known suppliers, and share AltusGroup's collaborative approach to precast concrete innovation. They include Meadow Burke, BASF, JVI Inc., High Concrete Accessories, FINFROCK and Architectural Polymers.
"We are excited to have a significant partner representing the polyiso industry joining our team," said John Carson, Executive Director of AltusGroup.

The partnership reinforces the flexibility CarbonCast provides in terms of specifying the ideal insulation for a given application."
Atlas and its management team will introduce AltusGroup to EnergyShield rigid wall insulation technology, which is composed of a closed cell polyisocyanurate (polyiso) foam core, faced with a non-reflective coated glass-mat facer on both sides ideal for use in concrete insulated panels. EnergyShield combines high R-value and increased durability for various continuous insulation (CI) applications requiring polyiso foam.
