Myth: Spray foam chemicals are not safe or environmentally friendly.

Truth:

  • The spray foam we use is actually more environmentally friendly than traditional insulation types.

  • Due to the fact that it has no food value, bacteria cannot grow on it, and it is not a food source for animals. This means that you won’t attract any rodents or fungus once applied.

  • Our concrete lifting foams are water blown, which means they have ultra-low-GWP (Global Warming Potential) and zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential).

  • Earlier used blowing agents had very high-GWP and ODPs. Common insulation materials used today are made with hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) blowing agents that have high-Global Warming Potential. HFCs have no ozone depletion potential; however, they still have high-Global Warming Potential.

  • Newer developments in technology and science have allowed us to use ultra-low-Global Warming Potential blowing agents, called hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs). HFOs are unsaturated organic compounds that contain carbon, chlorine, fluorine and hydrogen.

  • HFOs only live in the atmosphere for weeks-compared to HFCs, that live for years, decades, and so on. Our foams have an ultra-low global warming potential (GWP) of 1. This represents a 99.9% reduction compared to HFC alternatives.

Myth: Spray foam is always toxic.

Truth:

  • When spray foam hardens and cures, the chemicals become inert. If these chemicals are not mixed in the right proportion or are applied in the wrong conditions, the foam may not completely harden upon application. This means the foam applied can begin to produce off-gas. This is why home and business owners should always take it into their own hands to research and find a company that is educated, certified and able to apply polyurthane without any safety or toxicity concerns.

  • We use the most sophisticated equipment that aids us when mixing the chemicals for application. Our proportioner makes sure that the 1:1 ratio required for application is met during each and every injection and application point.
