Description

The Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA) is a trade association dedicated to the spray foam insulation industry. SPFA lists 337 members, including distributors, contractors, and chemical suppliers. The density of open-cell polyurethane ranges from 0.5–1.4 lbs/ft3 and the R-valueMeasure of resistance to heat flow; the higher the R-value, the lower the heat loss. The inverse of U-factor. ranges from 3.7–4.0 per inch, increasing as the density increases. The density of closed-cell polyurethane ranges from 1.5–3.5 lbs/ft3 and the R-value ranges from 6.0–6.8, increasing as the density increases. Blowing agents in spray polyurethane foam (SPF) commonly have a high global warming potential (GWP). GreenSpec encourages readers to use our listings to find products, but we list SPFA as a resource for installation directions. SPF is tricky to install correctly, and there are health hazards to avoid.
