Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is a spray-applied insulation found in all types of residential housing and commercial buildings. SPF is an insulating plastic that is installed as a liquid and then expands up to 100 times its original volume, creating an unparalleled air-tight seal. Spray polyurethane foam is found in multiple forms which allow it to be applied in many applications. SPF may be formulated to achieve a variety of final forms, from a semi-rigid insulation foam that is soft to the touch to a high density roofing foam that is resistant to foot traffic and water. SPF requires a collection of specialized equipment for its application as well as proper training to ensure ideal performance and results.

SPF's diversity makes it the leader in insulating building products. SPF achieves high R-Values while providing a seamless air barrier and giving strong support to the moisture control of a structure. For roofing, spray foam insulates and negates thermal bridging through fasteners or gaps in the roof deck while providing a monolithic, long-lasting roofing system that has a life that can reach well beyond 10 to 15 years. As a result, SPF can be used in a wide variety of applications, including, but not limited to:

  • Residential and commercial insulation in walls, ceilings, attics and basements
  • Sloped or flat roofs
  • Air barriers
  • Industrial insulations of pipes and tanks, cold storage facilities, freezers, walk-in coolers, and climate controlled structures such as produce storage and clean rooms
  • Flotation for boats, ships, barges, floating docks, and other waterborne structures
