  • 10.25.2011 What is Spray Polyurethane Foam? Modify to include chemistry / components  SPF Insulation is created by the reaction of two liquids  2 component, 1:1 ratio mixture to create finished foam insulation on the jobsite  Not a DIY product – takes trained, qualified applicators to properly install  Product quality and finished material is highly dependant on ability of applicator to follow manufacturer and industry guidelines  35+ year performance history in commercial construction  25+ year performance history in residential construction  Can be used safely when wearing proper protection equipment View slide
  • 10.25.2011 SPF Chemistry and “Green” Content  SPF chemistry is nearly ALL the same:  Component A- Isocyanate: MDI-PMDI (Adhesive/Hardener)  Component B- Polyol resin: Polyols, catalysts, blowing agents, flame retardants, smoke suppressants & surfactants  “Green” or sustainable components can make up only a portion of the polyols in the B drum – all other components remain fairly equal amongst spray foams  Post-scrap plastics reprocessed (recycled soda & water bottles)  Renewable or plant-grown materials (sugar beets, soy, cane products)  Based upon the total percentage of all polyols that have the capacity of being recycled or renewable in content, spray foams contain no more than 15-20% of these materials total Isocyanate Flame Retardant Blowing Agent Petroleum Polyol Renewable Polyol Agricultural Polyol Additives

  • What You Need To Know about SPF  Closed-cell Spray Foam  “2-lb.” density – Rigid SPF – High/medium density  Not full wall thickness – Controlled expansion – Hybrid system applications  Non-ozone depleting (HFC) blowing agent – Millions of tiny closed-cells trap this high- efficiency gas  R-value = 6.0-7.0 per inch  Offers up to 300% increased structural value (over 2”)  Open-Cell Spray Foam  “½-lb” density – Semi-rigid spray foam – Low density  Fills up the wall cavity – High expansion – Shaving required  Water blowing agent – Expands & leaves open air pockets  R-value = 3.4-3.9/inch  No structural value
  •  Open-Cell Foam  Air Barrier at 3.5” – Meets sealant requirement of IECC  Vapor retarder typically required in cold climates – 5” application = 10 perms  Water can absorb (up to 40% by volume) – Do not use below grade or on ductwork  Offers sound absorption and barrier performance  Closed-cell Foam  Air Barrier at 1” – Meets sealant requirement of IECC  Code defined vapor retarder at 1.5” or greater – 1.5” application = 0.95 perms  Difficult for water to absorb (less than 4% water absorption) - Hydrophobic – FEMA Flood Resistant  Offers sound barrier performance only (will not absorb noise) What You Need To Know about SPF
  • 7/11/201313 SPF Myths - What about rigidity and long-term adhesion?  Closed-cell spray foam has been used successfully for residential and commercial construction for over 30 years  Exhibited dependable performance, when applied properly, in extreme weather conditions, without loss of adhesion or bond  Properties that enhance it’s performance  Elasticity  Mechanical / Chemical Bond to Surfaces  Racking Strength
  • 7/11/201314 SPF Myths – What about Flammability and Fire?  BASF’s Foam Systems for residential construction are Class 1 rated construction materials  Contains fire retardants and smoke suppressants  Class 1 exceeds Class 2 requirements of International Residential Code  ALL FOAM INSULATION applications (open cell, closed-cell spray, rigid board, etc.) for interior use must be covered with thermal barriers, i.e. ½” Gypsum Board, for fire safety, with few exceptions
  • 7/11/201315 SPF Myths – What about Outgassing and Air Quality?  No Urea Formaldehydes - Never had them, Never will  Honeywell’s Enovate® is a non-flammable HFC-245fa that replaced HCFC and CFC blowing agents.  Zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP)  Low Global Warming Potential (GWP)  Not considered a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) in US  Inert Plastic Remains in place - No outgassing  Studies by AMA and others to prove no physical effect  Used in American Lung Association Health House  Asthmatic daughter – benefit to sealing up assembly  Non-fibrous insulation

  • Ventilation and Re-Occupancy of Residential Homes Sprayed with High Pressure Spray Polyurethane Foam  Joint research study between BASF Corporation, Honeywell and Air Products  Hypothesis  Engineering controls (ventilation and isolation) can be used to: – Reduce chemical migration outside of the spray area – Reduce the re-entry time to less than the 24 hour industry standard  Goals  Utilize ventilation and isolation strategies that are: – Cost effective (equipment) – Simple (isolation from the home HVAC) – Quick (reasonable prep work) – Easily incorporated into part of overspray protection used on SPF job sites  Prove exposure limits are reduced or limited to allow reoccupany more quickly
  • Air Monitoring in 3 Test House Cases  Measurements were generally not taken in the sealed and ventilated application areas (attic & basement).  The objective was to measure inside the house for MDI, TVOC’s, catalyst, bl owing agent and fire retardant which are components of spray foam.  Measurements were taken at several areas within the home before, during and after
  • Ventilation Strategy 3811/1/2012 Original Diagram courtesy of Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA)
  • Ventilation Equipment  The flexible duct comes in 20 ft. x 12” diameter sections for approx. $75 each.  The two speed fan (110 volt) is priced about $180.  2905 ft3 per minute capacity  About $330 total cost, plus furnace filters replaced on every job.
  • Ventilation Strategy 4011/1/2012
  • Exhaust Strategy 4111/1/2012
  • Estimated Air Change Air Inlet (23.5 ft2) Air Exhaust (1.57 ft2) The estimated attic air volume varied and the fan operation is about 2000 to 2500 ft3 per minute (after filtration) which is an air change of about every 1 to 3 minutes not considering inlet and exhaust factors.
  • Considerations 4311/1/2012
  • Conclusions – ADD pitch for Bruce’s program to implement this CONTROL  Sealing or containing the work area works well.  Ventilating during and after spray reduces re-occupancy times.  MDI was never detected at the exhaust from the home.  At one to three air changes per minute, there was no observed decay rate of total VOC (TVOC) after the first hour.  One hour of ventilation after the completion of spraying in each home yielded very low concentrations of flame retardant, amine catalyst, TVOC and 245fa. MDI (Iso) was never detected.  Later testing of the three SPF applications from 1 to 6 months later showed no recordable amounts of concerned chemicals.
  • Conclusions  Current PPE and work practices recommended for SPF should be continued. (SAR, suits, eye protection and gloves)  When utilizing the ventilation methods and rates as in this study, unless other trades are entering the spray area, PPE should not be required and they may enter other areas of the building.  With ventilation of the spray area and plastic to segregate the area being sprayed from the rest of the home, one hour (with ventilation at one air change per minute) appears be a safe recommendation for re-occupancy of the home. In most cases, more material such as a intumescent coating or drywall will need to be applied.

  • Application Overview with SPF  Attic / Roof Insulation Retrofit Options  Unvented attic assemblies – Best for improved efficiency – Full SPF or combination systems on the underside of the roof deck  Vented attic - Insulation on the flat ceiling – Conventional application – Combination system of SPF for air seal & blown in for balance – Encapsulated or foamed ductwork  Basement / Crawlspace / Bonus Room Floors / Exposed Garages  High performance, fully adhered solution to problem areas  Retrofit Case Studies – Do we have any more health case studies?
  • Ignition barrier as required by code SPF Insulation for Unvented, Conditioned Attics and Cathedrals Closed-cell SPF is the best insulation for unvented, semi-conditioned attics and cathedral ceilings •Improved energy savings when HVAC equipment is in the attic1 •May reduce damage from rainwater intrusion in attic2 •Wrap around trusses to get thermal break •Can be used as part of a hybrid approach when using proper SPF thickness 1. Unvented-cathedralized attics: Where we’ve been and where we’re going, A. Rudd, J. Lstiburek and K. Ueno, Building Science Corporation. 2. Literature Review of the Impact and Need for Attic Ventilation in Florida Homes FSEC-CR-1496-05 31 May 2005 3. Attic and Crawlspace Ventilation: Implications for Homes in the Urban-Wildlife Interface, S.L. Quarles and A. TenWolde. Forest Products Society proceedings, 2005 ISBN I892529. Moisture is controlled due to low vapor and low air permeance of the closed-cell spray foam Spray foam is sprayed in direct contact with the roof deck
  • Benefits for High Wind / Storm Resistance  Closed-cell spray polyurethane foam (ccSPF) insulation - One of the best solutions for strengthening the connection between the roof deck and the trusses in both new and existing homes.  Sealing the venting with ccSPF to create an unvented attic has other benefits over improved fasteners and adhesives.  Prevents unwanted internal pressurization of the roof during high winds  Blocks wind-blown rain from entering the home  Acts as a backup waterproofing layer that minimizes water entering the home  Stops water absorption – only FEMA approved cavity insulation for use in homes built in flood zones
  • Closed-cell SPF Insulation for Unvented, Conditioned Attics
  • Special Considerations for Unvented Attics  Building Code - Now allowed by code in an unvented attic  Combination Systems must use specified foam thickness per Climate Zone  Shingle Manufacturers’ Warranties  Homeowners are consulted to check with all other manufacturers before proceeding with unvented roof assemblies  Option to install continuous vent chutes in each bay, then install SPF over vents to create a sealed attic over a vented roof deck  Install code required ignition barrier or thermal barrier over SPF surface  Combustion air for appliances – must be high efficiency or vented to the exterior  Humidity control – Active spot ventilation through to exterior (not attic!) and/or dehumidification needed in interior of home  Removal of old insulation is required
  • 7/11/201352 SPF Myths - What about Roof Leaks?  Closed-cell spray foam acts as a secondary rain barrier, ESPECIALLY valuable in a coastal zones and rain prone areas, to keep the elements out of the home prior to repairs during high wind events and damages  Open cell foam MAY let the water flow through, but can also retain moisture against the sheathing  Water will also migrate within foam mass before showing up usually  Consider the BENEFITS of closed-cell SPF on the underside of your roof..  Would you rather have water in your living room, or within one section of the roof sheathing? Easier to identify and repair  Damage is limited to a specific area, not allowed to move or create additional damage and mold potential
  • SPF Insulation for Vented Attics (Floor) - Combo Systems •SPF can be used below other insulations to air seal and strengthen attic floors* •Covered with blown fiber glass or cellulose – To be determined by local building official what qualifies as ignition barrier per code requirement •It is ideally suited to seal crevices around recessed lighting**, vent pipes and wiring in the attic *Use caution when spraying onto sheetrock – ½”-1” initial passes **Maintain 3” separation from all lights and fireplaces flues, per building code
  • Closed-cell SPF Insulation for Ductwork Computer Modeling of Heat Flow From Insulation Buried DuctSection Through Foamed Over Insulation Buried Duct R-6 Duct R-6+ Foam Insulation  Studies have proven substantial performance improvements using ccSPF  Controls duct air leakage  Increases insulation (control heat gain)  Controls condensation  Crawlspace ducts always foamed and attics only when it a unconditioned space
  • SPF Insulation for Under Houses / Garage Ceilings SPF can be applied to the underside of the bonus rooms above garages •Prevent or fix call back issues related to “cold floor” complaints •Completely seals against air infiltration – reduces potential for freezing pipes and other moisture concerns •Covered with sheetrock – no exposed SPF in garages “In the retrofit area, Medium-density spray foam can do things no other insulation system can do with respect to both air-tightness and vapor control. … In such applications the Medium-density spray foam is not water sensitive, it provides both a thermal barrier and air barrier without creating a vapor barrier. A vapor retarder is provided to allow drying of the assembly in both directions.” Rigid Spray Foam Insulation: Residential and Low-Rise Commercial Construction – Joe Lstiburek, Building Science Corporation report, March 2006 courtesy Honeywell
  • Closed-cell SPF Insulation for Rim Joists / Cantilevered areas SPF seals and insulates rim (band) joists, overhangs and behind stairs •Easily applied in hard-to-reach places •Does not compress or sag like fiber glass batt insulation…Remains in place •Eliminates air infiltration and controls moisture at rim joist, mud-sill and masonry •In IRC, spray foam is allowed in this area with no fire protection necessary per Plastics code section, if meets limitations (3.25” max and Class 1) •Caution on pressure treated lumber – picture frame to ensure proper adhesion
  • Closed-cell SPF Insulation for Basements The ccSPF water-resistance and vapor retarder properties are ideal for internally- insulated below-grade walls •Best if used continuously between masonry walls and framing. •Great for renovation/retrofit •IECC specifies R5 of continuous SPF to be equivalent to R13 of cavity insulation •Must be covered by Sheetrock or 15 min. thermal barrier “Interior basement application of medium-density spray foam in both new and retrofit applications has significant advantages over most conventional interior insulation basement approaches. … Interior approaches using medium-density spray foam have no cost conventional alternative technology – particularly in regions prone to flooding.” Rigid Spray Foam Insulation: Residential and Low-Rise Commercial Construction – Joe Lstiburek, Building Science Corporation report, March 2006
  • Closed-cell SPF Insulation for Crawlspaces ccSPF is an ideal answer for problem crawlspaces •Can be applied between and around joists or on walls (conditioned) •Easily fits around obstructions and permanently remains in place •Due to its water resistance, it offers the best insulation alternative for un-vented crawl spaces •Retrofit opportunity •Must be covered with ignition barrier – fiber / mineral glass or rigid board Detail of an un- vented crawlspace application of SPF Figure 7.35 from Builder’s Guide to Cold Climates by J. Lstiburek
