The SPRAYTITE material offers a closed-cell content of greater than 90 percent, eliminates
costly and risky uncontrolled air leakage by contributing to a monolithic, air impermeable
building insulation system and meets ASTM 1029/SPFA guidelines. Our closed-cell technology
is unique in the way that it allows you to specify a material that is engineered to meet and
exceed required performance criteria for every code and climate.
The SPRAYTITE insulation and air barrier material uses the versatility of polyurethane chemistry
to combine a superior effective R-value (over 6.0* per inch) with seamless, almost-zero air
permeability for increased energy efficiency, durability and occupant comfort, health and
safety. Combining air impermeability with high insulation R-value translates to a highly energy
efficient building that costs less to own over time.
The SPRAYTITE material is accepted by all major building codes, including the International
Code Council encompassing both commercial and residential applications. Accredited
third-party testing of the SPRAYTITE material using ASTM E283 / ASTM E21781 proves that
closed-cell polyurethane foam insulation is a Building Code-recognized air barrier material.
Spray-applied, closed-cell polyurethane foam has also been proven to add substantial structural
integrity throughout the wall system. Testing conducted by the National Association of Home
Builders (NAHB) Research Center shows closed-cell polyurethane foam insulation installed
between wood- and steel-stud wall panels increased racking (shear) strength two-to-three
times compared with standard stick-built components with fiberglass insulation, when sprayed
onto gypsum wallboard, vinyl and plywood siding, and oriented strand board (OSB).
The SPRAYTITE insulation and air barrier material is a formaldehyde-free formula that emits
no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and uses ZONE3® zero ozone depleting blowing agent
technology. By eliminating condensing surfaces and offering no food source, it helps to resist
mold, mildew and pest infestations, contributing to a safer, healthier indoor environment.
* The R-value of this insulation. “R” means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Compare insulation R-values before you buy. There are
other factors to consider. The amount of insulation will depend upon the climate, the type and size of your house, and the fuel use patterns and family size. If you buy too much
insulation it will cost you more than what you will save on fuel. To achieve proper R-values, it is essential that this insulation be installed properly.
