Various grades of Envirospray, from 8 to 80 kg/m3 density
Spray Applied Insulations
Sprayed PIR/PU insulation is a cost effective and versatile way to insulate all kinds of areas, including awkward and hard to reach spaces.
- The polyurethane foam is produced directly on the substrate to be insulated using a spray process.
- The material forms a continuous, even layer with no joints or gaps, eliminating any possible thermal bridges.
- Spray insulation is the ideal solution for a very wide variety of surfaces and shapes because the material adapts to any profile without gaps.
The field of applications covers virtually all areas of flat and pitched roofs, ceilings, walls and floors
- For example, it is often used to seal a roof space, providing insulation, draught proofing, weather proofing and sometimes a degree of structural stability.
- Like all PIR/PU insulation, the sprayed version has lower thermal conductivity than many other commonly used insulation products, so does not need to be as deep to achieve the same level of insulation.
- Other advantages include the fact that before application it is a very low-volume product, requiring little space and therefore reducing transportation costs.
- It is simple to apply and needs no fixing devices, helping to keep costs down.
- Unlike factory manufactured insulation products, the quality of spray applied insulation is largely dependent upon the skills of the applicator.
- It is important that customers choose responsible and experienced contractors, preferably using one of the members of the national association, BUFCA (British Urethane Foam Contractors Association)
Depending upon the end application requirements, fire retardant grades of foam may be necessary
- IFS Chemicals manufacture a two-part foam system that achieves a Class 1 fire rating when tested to BS 476, Part 7.
- The company has a range of roofing grades (foam density from 40 to 60 kg/m3).
- IFS also supplies a very low density, fire-retardant product (8 kg/m3) for general building applications.
- Prospective clients are encouraged to discuss their requirements with IFS directly in order that a suitable contractor can be recommended.
