ECOFOAM POURING is a fully-blended rigid polyurethane foam system best used for repairs. It is prepared by mixing two chemicals which are measured in a 1:1 ratio; these are mixed manually with common mixing materials and poured into molds or compartments to be filled and insulated. This can be used to insulate panels and pipes or repair spray-up PU foam damages. It contains flame retardants which give the cured foam a fire rating of B3 standard according to DIN 4102. It is designed to have a high resistance to solvents such as petrols, kerosene, toluene, and xylene.
PROPERTIES OF CLOSED CELL
FEATURES, ADVANTAGES & BENEFITS
High Thermal Resistance
Ecofoam has the highest thermal resistance value of 6.3-8.7 ft2.hr °F/BTU thereby having the lowest thermal conductivity among the other insulating materials in the market.
Quick and Non – disruptive
Ecofoam cures in less than 10 minutes and does not disrupt any ongoing construction activities during application. It is manually-mixed and applied without using machines, thus, it is easy to prepare and low cost compare to other PU foams.
It can be easily cleaned and maintained. It is easy to repair since damages on the Ecofoam are localized; repair can be done on the damaged part without the need of removing the entire foam system.
It weighs approximately 1 kg/m2. Thus it will not add additional stress to the roofing system if applied on roofs.
It forms no gaps, no joints, and connections when it is applied properly and evenly by spraying or pouring.
Self – flashing
It expands and seals multiple penetrations, eliminating the use of additional flashing materials
Prohibits Air Intrusion
Ecofoam eliminates air leakage by effectively sealing the building envelope to create an optimal energy-efficient and healthy environment.
Ecofoam can be applied over a wide variety of clean substrates and can conform to any shapes of a substrate.
Inhibits Mold Growth
Ecofoam is not a food source; Ecofoam limits air supply; and Ecofoam limits the potential of water condensation within the walls.
Ecofoam offers low life cycle cost,and it offers many years of service life as its physical properties hardly change over time with proper maintenance.
Ecofoam is CFC free and does not use blowing agents that are deteriorative to the ozone layer and far safer than other PU foam canister. Thus, this is safe to use and worry-free when applied.
This enables the foam to grip the building walls, thereby holding tight in the face of strong winds. Roofs with SPF resist roof uplift during high wind drafts.
