Reducing energy costs with PFAS

With energy costs rising to unprecedented levels, the demand for increased home and building efficiency is higher than ever. Proper insulation can help you cut the amount of energy you need to cool and heat your home.

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is a foam insulation with blowing agents that enable the foam to expand and harden during application, effectively sealing any cracks, joints, or seams. The blowing agent properties effect the insulating ability of the foam and they create air tight barriers with minimal material or space.

Not only does this enable a significant advancement towards reducing the amount of energy used to heat and cool a building, SPF also provides enhanced indoor comfort, with better temperature and humidity regulation, sound proofing and improved air quality, as well as added structural integrity and strength.

HFOs (Hydrofluoroolefins) act as blowing agents in the production of insulation foams. HFOs have unique physical properties enabling energy efficiency innovations for a range of different applications and can play an integral part in achieving the goals of the European Green Deal. Additionally, they showcase ultra-low global warming potential (GWP) and zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), making them one of the most sustainable solutions for the polyurethane foam industry.
