Washington, DC - The safe use and handling of spray-foam polyurethane insulation and insulating sealant products is the focus of a website launched 22 Sept by the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI).
The site - www.spraypolyurethane.com - is intended for SPF contractors, weatherisation professionals, do-it-yourselfers (DIYers), and homeowners. It was developed in cooperation with the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance, which represents professionals in the sector, and aims to provides up-to-date information on the benefits and safe handling of the two product families, according to a statement from the CPI.
The site is easy to navigate and organised by audience sector:
* Homeowners having SPF installed in their home;
* DIYers who plan to seal gaps and cracks with insulating foam sealant; and
* SPF professional and weatherisation contractors.
The site gives access to a wealth of guidance materials, posters and videos, making it a storehouse of information on SPF - including product types, applications, benefits, and, most importantly, safe use and handling. Users will quickly find sections suited to their particular needs, CPI says.
The CPI is a sector group within the American Chemistry Council (ACC) while the SPFA represents professional contractors, chemical manufacturers and distributors of polyurethane foam, equipment and protective coatings, surface preparations, inspections and other services across the US.
