Sprayed Polyurethane Foam

What is Sprayed Polyurethane Foam Insulation? Quite simply, it is "insulation plus sealant.” As a rigid cellular plastic with over 95% closed cell content, Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation acts as insulation, an air barrier and also a vapour barrier. Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation will cut energy costs and improve comfort levels in any building.


What are the properties of Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation (SPFI)?

  • Continuous and seamless with no joints

  • Adheres to wood, metal, concrete, masonry, most plastics

  • Almost totally impermeable to air

  • Durability and long service life

  • NewCan be sprayed overhead and doesn't sag


What properties does an air barrier system component (SPFI) require?

  • Continuity through the envelope

  • Ability to fasten to supporting structure

  • Ability to resist peak wind loads

  • Sustained stack effect

  • Pressurization from mechanical ventilation


Where in the envelope are Spray Polyurethane Foams used?

  • Large components

  • Connecting large components


Is SPFI recognized in the National Building Code?

SPFI is not only recognized as a protective barrier system while meeting the levels set in the building code, it EXCEEDS these air barrier levels by acting as an air barrier, a vapour barrier and also as insulation. SPFI has one of the highest R-values per inch of any insulating material available.
