When used on buildings, B-huts, DFACs and even tents, SPF helps eliminate air infiltration, reduce hot and cold air and moisture penetration, reduce utility costs and meet aggressive federal energy reduction mandates.
SPF is used in military installations around the United States – Ft. Bliss, Ft. Belvoir, Ft. Bragg, Ft. Carson, Ft. Drum, Ft. Eustis, Ft. Irwin, Ft. Jackson, Ft. Knox, Ft. Lee, Ft. Leonard Wood, Ft. Stewart, Ft. Wainwright, Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, Parris Island and Peterson Air Force Base – and forward operating bases FOBs) – Afghanistan, Iraq, Djibouti and Kuwait – around the world.
BENEFITS OF SPF IN MILITARY APPLICATIONS
  • Helps reduce casualties (in war zones) by reducing the fuel demand/number of fuel convoys
  • Helps meet Building Air Tightness Requirements (ECB 2009-29) mandated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for new and renovation construction projects
  • Provides more comfortable living conditions for troops

SPF has high thermal resistance and restricts air infiltration (which can account for up to 40 percent of a building's heating and cooling costs), thereby lowering the overall energy demand.

BENEFITS OF SPF IN COMMERCIAL BUILDING APPLICATIONS
  • Reduces energy consumption and helps save up to 50 percent in heating and cooling costs
  • Seals the building to prevent energy loss due to outside air infiltration
  • Restricts moisture, outdoor allergens, pollutants and sound, and prevents condensation and mold
  • Adds structural strength to buildings (closed cell) and added benefit in high wind or hurricane zones

More than 40 percent of the energy used in buildings goes into heating and cooling. SPF in the building envelope can reduce heating and cooling energy loads significantly.

In federal buildings, SPF helps meet Executive Order 13514 – which requires all new federal buildings to be net-zero building energy requirement by 2030.

BENEFITS OF SPF IN INSTITUTIONAL BUILDING APPLICATIONS
  • SPF's energy savings benefits make it a wise choice for buildings designed for long life
  • Helps meet R-value requirements in ASHRAE Standard 90.1 and IECC
  • Some types of SPF are GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified®

SPF can be sprayed directly onto existing roofing material as a re-cover, or applied onto new substrates, making them weather-proof, light-weight, durable. Additionally, roofs sprayed with SPF require less maintenance compared to traditional roofing systems.

BENEFITS OF SPF IN INDUSTRIAL BUILDING APPLICATIONS
  • Provides thermal and sound insulation
  • Delivers high-performance, energy efficiency
  • Extends the life of roofs and heating and cooling equipment
  • Prevents condensation problems common in metal buildings
  • Can absorb sound, resulting in a quieter environment

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF), available in open cell and closed cell, provides an effective, tight thermal and air barrier around a building's envelope. This results in a reduction in energy loss due to air infiltration, and significantly lower heating and cooling costs. Energy efficiency and green building practices are at the forefront of new home/building construction and retrofit projects. SPF helps architects and builders design and build more energy efficient homes/buildings, thus allowing the home/builder owners to reduce their energy consumption and costs.

BENEFITS OF SPF IN RESIDENTIAL BUILDING APPLICATIONS
  • Reduces energy consumption and helps save up to 50 percent in heating and cooling costs
  • Seals the building to prevent energy loss due to outside air infiltration
  • Restricts moisture, outdoor allergens, pollutants and sound, and prevents condensation and mold
  • Allows for a reduction in the size of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, reducing the cost to the homeowner
  • Adds structural strength to buildings (closed cell) and added benefit in high wind or hurricane zones
  • Contributes to the United States Green Building Council's LEED®-H and the National Association of Home Builders Green Building Standard&##8482; for homes
