Sprayed Polyurethane Foam delivers results!
The architectural, design and engineering communities have utilized the many benefits and unique characteristics of sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF) for nearly half a century.
It stops airflow problems that lead to:
Why is Spray Foam the BEST for your Building?
There is a reason why polyurethane foam is used in most every refrigerator, hot water heater, refreshment cooler, insulated flask, and hot tub. You don’t see fiberglass batts wrapped around the space shuttle either. That’s because polyurethane foam is far more superior in its R-value, structural strength, air/moisture sealing, and form fitting characteristics.
Owners and facility managers are becoming more educated and more demanding of the building materials used in the construction of their properties. They are seeking the best, highest performing, and sustainable materials for their properties and their occupants, not to mention their wallets. And even though spray foam is more expensive, it can absolutely help to save money and create much greater value and performance over time.
Sprayed polyurethane foam has an aged R-value of approximately 6.0 per 1 inch thickness (depending on the particular formulation and application, higher values have been achieved), enabling it to provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of commercial insulation material. SPF systems are frequently used to insulate and protect a wide variety of commercial and industrial buildings.
Reduce Moisture and Mold
Molds produce tiny spores to reproduce. Mold spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.
