NAIMA (North American Insulation Manufacturers Association) is dedicated to concentrating all efforts into promoting energy efficiency and environmental preservation through the use of fiberglass and mineral wool insulation. Backed with building science, today's fiberglass protocols mean better results, in less time, with fewer hassles-and it promotes a safer environment for homeowners and installers. We'll help you achieve more with everything you need to know about proper installation and air sealing techniques for any location, any standard, and any code.
NAIMA is recognized as the voice of the North American insulation industry for architects and builders; design, process and maintenance engineers; contractors; code groups and standards organizations; government agencies; public interest, energy and environmental groups; and homeowners.
The Insulation Contractors Association of America (ICAA) is a non-profit trade association and the only national voice representing residential and commercial insulation contractors.
Our membership base is comprised of insulation contractors; suppliers of materials, services, and equipment; and others who have compatible interests.
ICAA informs and educates about the latest industry news, products, technologies, and government regulations. ICAA represents small and large insulation contractors who install all types of thermal and acoustical insulation.
