Lucideon Becomes a Member of the National Insulation Association (NIA)

Lucideon, the international materials development and commercialization organization, is delighted to announce that it is now a member of the National Insulation Association (NIA).

The NIA represents manufacturers, system certificate holders and installers of cavity wall, external wall, internal wall, loft, roof and floor insulation and draught proofing in the UK.

For Lucideon, membership of the NIA will facilitate introductions within industry and the promotion of its services, as well as the opportunity to attend members’ meetings and the annual conference. The sharing of industry news and briefings on policy matters, regulations and technical matters will ensure Lucideon remains abreast of developments within this sector.

Neil Marshall, chief executive at the NIA, said:

“As the insulation industry’s leading trade association, we’re very pleased to have Lucideon join us as they will not only bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise regarding EWI, but will also strengthen our industry voice with Government and external stakeholders.”

Joanne Booth, business manager, construction at Lucideon, added:

“Being a member of the NIA will enable us to further support and provide up-to-date advice to our own customers who are key players in the External Wall Insulation (EWI) industry.

“I’m very much looking forward to participating in the EWI Technical Committee meetings. Using our extensive knowledge and testing experience,

we will be able to provide an insight into the key factors affecting the performance of EWI systems under the current controversial aspects of durability and resistance to wind loads which are negatively affecting the industry.”

Lucideon provides support throughout the lifecycle of products, systems and buildings, from developing new materials and laboratory testing,

to factory production control and on-site investigations.

The purpose-built, large-scale construction laboratory at Lucideon’s Stoke-on-Trent headquarters has a 300 anchorage strong floor, loading rigs with 900 tonne capacity, as well as large-capacity hygrothermal testing chambers and an indoor dynamic wind loading and wind uplift test rig.
