Item 8.01 0ther Events.


On November 3, 2016, the Company was informed by the staff of the Federal Trade Commission (the “Commission”) that the Commission has filed a complaint against the Company in the United States District Court Western District of Pennsylvania. In the complaint the Commission alleges that, among other matters, the Company does not have substantiation of claims made by the Company regarding the R value and energy efficiency of its INSULTEX House Wrap products.


The Company strongly denies the allegations and intends to vigorously defend itself. It is the Company’s belief that the complaint is based on improper testing of the INSULTEX products using the wrong type of testing equipment.









Pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
