Spray form is also known as Spray polyurethane foam (SPF). It is made by mixing liquid chemicals together and once they react, they quickly turn into a foam that hardens and become insulating material which is great for homes, commercial buildings and other residents.
This foam acts as a barrier which seals gaps, forming a vapour and moisture barrier, preventing entry of these elements into the building. SPF is known to be heat resistant making it a great material for use in construction. When it comes to sealing cracks, seams and joints, SPF is a highly effective material for those hard to reach places.
There are 3 types of Spray Polyurethane Foam;
- High density SPF – Used in exteriors and roofs.
- Medium density SPF – Used for continuous insulation and for cavity fills.
- Low density SPF – Used for cavity fills and in unvented attics.
When choosing an insulating solution, SPF comes highly recommended. It is a great way to reduce energy costs since it is such a great insulating material.
It also ensures there are no cracks or gaps when it comes to corners or on contoured surfaces, ensuring there is a seamless insulating cover from end to end to ensure the comfort of all building occupants.
Additional benefits of SPF include;
- Strengthens the walls of a building and secures the building envelope
- Protects homes and buildings from mould and airborne diseases
- Keeps away pests, dust and rodents
- Keeps energy bills low
- It is permanent, sturdy and durable
- Meets current building codes
The use of SPF varies and can be applied on surfaces made of concrete, wood, steel and more. It is a great material especially for roofing because it is so versatile and it can be used on corners and on tapered roofs.
