Project Name: Cold Storage Container Van

Location: Cadiz City, Bacolod

Company: Mr. Allan Daniel

Applicator: S.E.A Olympus Marketing Inc.

System: Ecofoam Spray-up Application

Total Area: 186 sq. meters

Date Completed: April 22, 2010

PROBLEM

  • The Owner of the container van Mr. Allan Daniel wants to convert it into a cold storage in which he will be using it for his fishing business. Because the container van is made of metal which is one of the best heat conductor, he wanted to eliminate heat transfer and so are the rust. Rust forms when metals containing iron mix with the oxygen in the air or the water and create a compound named iron oxide. Wehn oxidation occurs it produces a chemical reaction that creates iron oxide (rust). To eliminate all this problems he needed a certain material that could resist thermal transfter as will as help preserve his container van from rust. Upon knowing about ECOFOAM Polyurethane Insulation, he then decided to use such material.

SOLUTION

  • ECOFOAM Polyurethane Insulation sprayed foam is chosen due to its high R-value, vapor blocking, thermal resistance, flexibility and performance under extreme temperatures. The Container van was then cleaned, removing all the rust then the cleaned area was then primed using an expoxy based, low temperature primer system. The next day installation of polyurethane foam was then made having a 2 inches standard thickness sprayed inside the container van, because it has the capacity to conform to any shope that it completely seal all gaps and crevices with an air-right barrier. Application was completed in less than 3 days, ECOFOAM polyurethane foam then both block moisture or vapor movement and insulate more effectively than any other vable alternatives.
