BCBEC 2017 Half-Day Workshop: Spray What? Is Spray Polyurethane Foam Safe and Environmentally Friendly?
February 2 at 7:30 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0
Harold Louwerse, Building Science Consultant, will be presenting Spray What? Is Spray Polyurethane Foam Safe and Environmentally Friendly? at the 2017 BC Building Envelope Council (BEC) Half-Day Workshop.
Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is a popular insulation material and one of the fastest growing insulation materials in North America. Approved for use in Canada, these products have undergone rigorous testing and approvals. However, there is another side to this popular insulation. Some homeowners and construction professionals recount SPF horror stories, blaming the chemicals in SPF for starting fires, reducing air quality and increasing health risks.
This presentation thoroughly reviews SPF best practices: what to avoid and how to successfully use it.
