Spray Foam Finally Gets a Price Competitive Edge Against Fiberglass Insulation and Batting

November 7, 2008 - Clinton, NJ - We in the sprayfoam insulation industry have battled, since the beginning, with upfront cost challenges of foam insulation versus fiberglass batting products.

We all have become experts at expounding on payback periods, the improvements in sound, air, mold, moisture, and structural rigidity that foam insulation provides. We've also become proficient at explaining inherent air conditioning, furnace, ducting and lumber cost reductions spray foam insulation allows. We have our payback calculators honed to a tee to help builders and owners see the true systems saving. Full Article

ICC-ES Approves New Fire Test Protocol for Spray Applied Polyurethane Foam in AC377

Birmingham, AL. June 3, 2009, the International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) approved changes in AC-377, Acceptance Criteria for Spray Allied Polyurethane Foam. This approval had the effect of sun-setting a previous fire testing method and implementing a new one, with phaseout milestones extending to December 2010.

The new fire testing protocol, an NFPA 286 test modified for the purposes of testing alternative ignition barriers for SPF, becomes one of several available tests recognized within the AC-377. Full Article
