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

Who applies SPFI?

Only trained, certified applicators from the Canadian Urethane Foam Contractors Association (CUFCA) are allowed to apply the SPFI, ensuring professional and consistent installations.

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.
