ECOFOAM SPRAY POLYURETHANE FOAM INSULATION

Ecofoam Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation

ECOFOAM is the flagship brand of foam insulation offered by SEA Olympus Marketing Incorporated that caters to basic thermal insulation needs within the Philippine market. Ecofoam Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is an air-driven, two-component mixture that is sprayed into a substrate to be insulated and instantly forms into rigid foam with excellent adhesion and secondary structural support to the substrate itself. Ecofoam SPF is also used to improve air quality inside domestic households and commercial establishments because the foam inhibits air intrusion that may carry pollutants and moisture that can result to water condensation and molds. Ultimately, Ecofoam SPF is best known and used to lower costs significantly in electrical consumption from HVAC (heating ventilation and air for most establishments.

TYPES OF INSULATION
Thermal Insulation
 

Ecofoam’s main purpose is to reduce heat to pass through either from outside or inside of our homes, tanks, pipes, etc. It has the highest R-value making it more effective if applied on comparing to using other insulation materials. With proper application and right thickness, insulation efficiency could be more than 40%. It is available on spray and pouring applications and can be applied either on the exterior or interior.

Exterior

The type of Ecofoam suitable for exterior application is the closed cell. This is made up of more cells of smaller size making the foam more rigid, dense, and a much better choice for thermal insulation. This is applied on the substrate improving structural durability, insulating it from UV damage and moisture accumulation. It is applied with topcoat for added protection, and for its maintenance.

Interior

Ecofoam application on the inside can also use closed cell type. It is usually applied on under the roof or on the walls reducing heat passage and prevents air infiltration thereby providing comfort to occupants in their homes. The applied foam is less in maintenance as it is not directly exposed to the adverse attacks of the outside environment. This system is also seen in cold storage applications such as vans and warehouses or on other establishments.

FEATURES, ADVANTAGES & BENEFITS
Self-flashing

 Self - Flashing

It expands and seals multiple penetrations, eliminating the use of additional flashing materials.

Improved Structural Strength

Improved Structural Strength

Closed cell SPF in wall cavity applications has increased racking strength by 330-400%.

Seamless

Seamless

It forms no gaps, no joints, and connections when it is applied properly and evenly by spraying or pouring.

High Thermal Resistance

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.

Energy-efficient

    Energy Efficient

Ecofoam is considered as one of the commercially available foam products to have the highest insulating R-value per inch which helps in saving electricity cost by maintaining coolness.

Easily Maintained

Easily Maintained

Ecofoam offers easy cleaning and maintenance. Repairs on damaged Ecofoam can be done only on the damaged part without the need of removing the entire foam system.

Prohibits Air Intrusion

Prohibits Air Intrusion

Ecofoam eliminates air leakage by effectively sealing the building envelope to create an optimal energy-efficient and healthy environment.

Inhibits Mold Growth

       Inhibits Mold Growth

Ecofoam is not a food source; Ecofoam limits air supply; and Ecofoam limits the potential of water condensation within the walls.

Sustainable

Sustainable

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.

Sound Transmission Reduction
 

When properly installed, Ecofoam forms an air-tight seal, void-free walls that prevents air leaks and greatly reduces noise transmission through walls. The Sound Transmission Coefficient (STC) is 36. This means that loud speech is audible but unrecognizable; an onset of privacy. Open cell is mainly for this application on its observed thickness. Its foam cell size is bigger than of closed cell PU foam. It can reduce medium to high frequency sounds and help reduce energy consumption by reducing heat passage. Open cell is suited to use at movie houses and theaters.
