What is Spray Foam?
Spray polyurethane foam, commonly referred to as SPF, is a sprayed foam insulation that starts as a liquid and then goes through equipment and is then mixed at the end of the spraygun. It gets, sprayed onto a surface and expands multiple times past its original volume. SPF formulas can be adjusted to have different physical properties depending on the type of application you need it for. For example, the same basic materials can make an insulation foam that is semi-rigid and soft to the touch, and those same materials can also create a high density roofing foam that is resistant to various weight and water.
Why is Spray Foam Used?
Spray foam is used in both residential and commercial applications because of it’s ability to seal and insulate structures. Common uses for it include home insulation and structure sealing. The properties of spray foam make it a much tighter sealant and insulator than packaged material you might generally apply to your house or commercial structure. The ability to spray it also allows it’s use on extraordinary shaped structures.
Commercial Spray Foam Applications
Numerous commercial applications for spray foam Calgary businesses and manufacturers need abound. These applications might be spray foam used as a containment system or a sealant. Spray foam is largely used as a secondary containment for prevention of leaks and spills of materials that could cause environmental harm. When used in this manner spray foam can provide help in protecting surrounding environments from pollution and can also help protect ground water from being contaminated.
As a primary containment system spray foam can also be used to help with corrosion resistance, leak prevention, and cross-contamination protection. The Oil and Mining industries greatly benefit from spray foam containment as well as sewer, trash, and wastewater systems.
These are only a few of the commercial applications for spray foam. Contact us for additional uses and reasons to treat your structure or facility with spray foam.
