SPRAY POLYURETHANE FOAM (SPF)


Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) involves combining two different ecologically safe chemicals, an Isocyanine and an organic resin Polyols. When combined expansion of the foam starts immediately.

Spray polyurethane foam is an excellent roof coating and insulation system. Once applied, it forms a monolithic, seamless, fully sealed moisture and air barrier.

For roofing, spray polyurethane foam insulates and eliminates thermal bridging through fasteners or gaps in decking while providing a long-lasting roofing system that has a life that can be extended by re-coating in an average of >10-15 years.

As a result spray polyurethane foam is used in a wide variety of applications including, but not limited to:
  • Roofing
  • Air barriers
  • Commercial and residential insulation in walls, ceilings, attics and basements
  • Industrial insulation for pipes and tanks, cold storage facilities, walk-in coolers, and climate controlled buildings such as produce storage and clean rooms
  • Flotation for boats, ships, barges, floating docks, etc.
  • High density spray polyurethane foam has been used to increase the structural strength of wings in airplanes
Benefits of SPF
  • Has high R-value per inch (open-cell 3.5 per inch and closed-cell 6.0 per inch)
  • Eliminates air filtration
  • Helps control moisture and condensation
  • Reduces convective current in walls and attics
  • Eliminates wind washing
  • Effective at low and high temperatures
Other benefits include...
  • Closed-cell SPF adds structural strength and glues a building together, thereby making it more resistant to racking events, such as hurricanes and high winds
  • SPF reduces noise from outside by sealing the building
  • Closed-cell SPF can provide an added barrier against water intrusion
