Installing LP NovaCore sheathing helps builders achieve LEED®, ENERGY STAR® and Green Building Standard ICC 700-2008 certifications.
LP NovaCore Thermal Insulated Sheathing made with Owens Corning® FOAMULAR® NGX™ XPS foam provides continuous insulation without the long-term R-value deterioration associated with other foam insulation products.
Panels can be cut and drilled the same as regular OSB and installed in a vertical or horizontal orientation, provided that all panel edges are supported and fastened to wall framing or blocking. LP NovaCore is only to be used as wall sheathing and as specified in our installation instructions.
