Ecofoam SPF

ECOFOAM is a two component, closed-cell spray applied polyurethane foam insulation material having highest thermal resistance value among readily available insulation materials, designed as a structural insulation system for commercial, residential and industrial application. It is comprised of diisocyanate and a blended component which includes polyols, fire retarding materials, catalysts, stabilizers and non-ozone depleting blowing agent.

Where can we apply EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation?

  • We can apply our EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation on existing built-up roof, all loose gravel and debris is removed.If necessary blistered and saturated areas are removed. Pressure washing is done on metal roofs to remove all dirt and debris. A rust inhibitor is used on roofs when dust is present.
  • The EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation is applied as a liquid and rises in seconds. The roof can be walked on in a matter of minutes. Areas where the roof sags can be built up for proper drainage by applying more foam in the problem areas.
  • The Ecofoam Polyurethane Insulation roof is now ready for coating. An elastomeric, weather resistant coating is applied to seal the foam. The normal coverage is two coats with the final coat being white. Other colors may be used but the white coating further reduces heat. The foam must be recoated every 8-10 years.
  • We can apply our EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation in various sites such as; Residential, Commercial and Industrial
✔ Roofing application (roof top) ✔ Floatation
✔ Dry wall application (ceiling) ✔ Theater and Movie Set Design
✔ Dry wall application (concrete) ✔ Spray Molding
✔ Dry wall application (steel/ plywood) ✔ Insulation Material

General Applications

 

How do we apply EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation?

 
We can apply the EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation if the substrate to be applied for is clean and dry. If the substrate is neither wet nor dirty, the EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation might not bond with the substrate causing it to pill off. The equipments that we are using are the proportioning machines, air compressors, hoses and spray air guns. Our insulation terms are experts in terms of applying the EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation in any substrates and they usually apply it with a 90° angle to be much more proportions. We are using 40% Freon or blowing agent in order for our EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation to be a good insulation material. EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation should be sprayed if the weather is not humid, or we can apply it if the sun is high in order for it to cure effectively and efficiently.

Features, Advantages and Benefits

✔ SEAMLESS – It forms no gaps, no joints and connections when it is applied properly and evenly by spraying or by pouring.

✔ SELF-FLASHING – It expands and seals multiple penetrations, eliminating the use of additional flashing materials.

✔ LIGHTWEIGHT – It weighs approximately 1.2 kg per m2. Thus, it will not add additional stress to the roofing system if applied on roofs.

✔ EASILY MAINTAINED – It can be easily cleaned and maintained. It is easy to repair since damages on the EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation are localized; repair can be done on the damaged part without the need of removing the entire foam system.

✔ SUSTAINABLE – EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation offers a low life cycle cost and offers many years of service life.

✔ ENERGY-EFFICIENT – EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation is considered as one of the commercially available foam products to have the highest insulating R-value per inch. With typical values ranging from R 5.6 to R 8 per inch, EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation provides efficient insulation; thus helps in saving electricity cost by maintaining coolness.

✔ VERSATILE – EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation can be applied over a wide variety of clean substrates and can conform to any shapes of a substrate.

✔ ELIMINATES AIR LEAKS – Air leakage contributes around 30% of a home’s annual cooling costs; also to problems with moisture, noise, dust and pollutants. EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation eliminates air leakage by effectively sealing the building envelope to create an optimal energy-efficient and healthy environment.

✔ REDUCES WIND UPLIFT – EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation is self-flashing and offers 100% adhesion. This enables the foam to grip the building walls, thereby holding tight in the face of high winds. Roofs with SPF resist roof uplift during high wind events.

✔ VAPOR RETARDER – EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation functions as Class II vapor retarder at greater than two (2) inch thickness. This limits the potential for vapor condensation within walls..

✔ REDUCES SOUND TRANSMISSION – When properly installed, EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation forms an air-tight seal, void – free walls that prevents air leaks and greatly reduces noise transmission through walls. The Sound Transmission Coefficient (STC) is 43. This means that loud speech is audible but not understandable; it is an onset of privacy.

✔ QUICK AND NON-DISRUPTIVE – EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation cures in less than 5 minutes and its spray application could cover a minimum of 150 sq. m. per day per machine. It does not disrupt any ongoing construction activities especially during above the roof application.

✔ WATER DOES NOT MOVE LATERALLY – EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation adheres fully to its substrates that even if damaged, water cannot travel under the foam roof.

✔ 90% CLOSED CELL CONTENT – Air and water particles cannot pass through the material thus preventing leakage and heat penetration.

✔ LOWEST THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY – EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation has the lowest thermal conductivity among other insulating materials in the market having a value of 0.019 W/m-K. The lower the k-value, the better is the insulating property of the material.

✔ ADDS SIGNIFICANT STRUCTURAL STRENGTH – Closed-cell SPF in wall cavity applications has increased racking strength by 330-400%.

✔ INHIBITS MOLD GROWTH – Mold spores are always in the air and could endanger the structure if allowed to grow. Mold spores require three conditions to grow: Food, Oxygen, and Water. EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation inhibits or prevent the growth by removing any one of the conditions. EcoFoam Polyurethane Insulation is not a food source; it limits air supply and limits the potential of water condensation within the walls as well.
