Sources for Structural Insulated Sheathing (SIS) Products
I found a post from 2018 that listed a few of these, https://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/question/osb-with-integrated-insulation
And have also looked at the Nailbase post by Martin Holladay (2016)
It seems like there are more companies now.
I have found the following companies that make structural insulated sheathing (SIS) products with their highest R value sheet:
Zip R – R12, poly, seems to used the lower long term cold weather R values
OX-IS – R10, uses Poly, so it is lower than listed value
ArmorWall – R21, poured urethane (waiting on an back from the company about long term cold weath R value), it also really heavy, the lightest 4×8 panel is 92lbs. For refence, 5/8 OSB weighs 66.6lbs.
ArmorWall is a unique one that one might want more info on
Go to the bottom of the and select “Max Facts: ArmorWall Goes Green”
ROK-ON – R10.5, EPS core, surrounded by sheets on both sides
Hunter Panels Xci Ply and NB -R25.8 uses poly, so it is lower than listed value
Barricade® Thermo-Brace® S.I.B – R5, uses GPS
Rmax Thermasheath®-SI – R6 uses Poly, so it is lower than listed value
C-SIS Sheathing – R6 uses Poly, so it is lower than listed value
Does anyone know of any other companies that make SIS’s?
I’m just looking for as many options as I can get.

This thread talks in depth about DOW’s SIS.
Thanks for the link. Based on what I can find online, Styrofoam SIS is now OX-IS. Searching the Duponts website, they do not offer a SIS anymore.
ArmorWall just got back to me, they use polyurethane, from which I can tell, is the same stuff closed cell spay foam is made of.
