Features & Benefits of SPF

Spray polyurethane foam insulation (SPF) used in residential and commercial construction has been in use since the 1960's. The material that makes up the cushion in your car seat, the cushion in your couch, your mattress, the insulation wrapping your refrigerator are all in the same family of products as SPF. NASA engineers recognize SPF's superiority as insulation medium as it is used on the space shuttle to protect astronauts from the deep freeze of space and the surface of the sun like temperatures experienced during re-entry into earth's atmosphere. One product attribute that makes SPF unique and superior to other forms of insulation is its ability to be manufactured on site to custom fit the spaces, nooks and cranny's that make up your home or office building. The custom installed nature of SPF in conjunction with its material characteristics make it the best insulation material currently available. Characteristics such as

COMFORT:
• SPF eliminates drafts and air seals.
• SPF helps maintain a comfortable, constant, temperature throughout the building, from room to room and floor to floor.
• SPF helps to reduce sound transmission through walls and roofing assemblies.

HEALTH:
• SPF assists in improving indoor air quality.
• SPF reduces the infiltration of outside air pollutants (ie. lawn chemicals, dander, pollen, etc)
• SPF can reduce moisture condensation and mold growth within the building walls and roof.
• SPF is VOC free, contains no formaldehyde and is inert.

VALUE:
• The increased efficiency of SPF can reduce heating and cooling usage dramatically.
• HVAC equipment can be down-sized, thereby reducing construction costs.
• SPF will not sag or settle or change dimensional installed shape.
• Highest available R-value.

ENVIRONMENT:
• SPF helps conserve energy while reducing pollution emissions.
• SPF contributes to sustainable construction programs (ie. LEED, NAHB Green Builder).
• SPF (Closed Cell) can help reduce structural damage caused by high winds.
• SPF contains no formaldehyde or ozone depleting substances.
• SPF formulas offered by Ecologic contain rapidly renewable organic resources as well as recycled content.
• Ecologic has unique product offerings and installation techniques to minimize job site waste.
