Description

PolarFoam PF-7300-0 SOYA is a closed-cell spray polyurethane foam with some soy oil and recycled-plastic content. The soy content of the finished foam is 3%–5%, according to the company, and roughly 1,000 20-ounce recycled PET bottles are used in each "set" (two 55-gallon drums) of the polyol (B side) of the foam components. Like most other closed-cell, medium-density SPF products, PolarFoam SOYA is is now ozone-safe, but its HFC-245fa blowing agent has a high global warming potential (GWP). The product is identical to Heatlock Soy 200, which is produced by the company's sister company, Demilec USA.
