What is Spray Foam?
Spray polyurethane foam, commonly referred to as SPF, is a sprayed foam insulation that starts as a liquid, goes through specialized equipment, and is then mixed at the end of the spray gun. It is 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 weights and water.
Why is Spray Foam Used?
Spray foam insulation is used in both residential and commercial applications because of its 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 its use on extraordinary shaped structures.
Insul-Foam Services offers a wide variety of spray foam insulation applications as well as other unconventional uses of polyurethane foam.
Insul-Foam Services provides spill safety and containment of chemicals preventing leakage and environmental contamination.
Commercial Spray Foam Applications
Numerous commercial applications for spray foam are available for Calgary and the surrounding area businesses and manufacturers. These applications can be 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 information and to discuss treating your structure or facility with spray foam. .
