SPF Professionals (Contractors, Homebuilders, Applicators, others)

As a spray polyurethane foam (SPF) professional—contractor, homebuilder, applicator, architect, marketer or helper—you’ve probably seen the growth in demand for SPF products and your services.

SPF insulation has grown in popularity in large part because it is so good at keeping homes warm in winter and cool in summer.

Because it is sprayed directly into the gaps, cracks and other surfaces that contribute to heat loss, it both insulates and air seals, offering one of the easiest and most effective ways of insulating and weatherizing existing homes and new construction.

Some Benefits of SPF in homes

  • Increases comfort
  • Impedes entry of insects and pests
  • Minimizes air infiltration that can generate condensation and result in mold growth
  • Seals small cracks to help insulate large areas, such as walls and roofs
  • Resists settling due to its general stability
  • Can qualify for utility rebates, tax credits and green certification

Among other benefits, it can help save on energy use, reduce heating and air conditioning size, and reduce drafts and noise. These and other benefits have probably been something that you have been asked to describe to customers.

As an SPF professional, you’re in a position to talk about the benefits of SPF and answer questions from customers. SPF professionals have a responsibility to stay informed about the safe use and handling of SPF products. This site will help you achieve that. An initiative of the American Chemistry Council’s Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) it is designed to help you be a better—and better informed—professional.
