Spring, Texas – Covestro has introduced a new open-cell spray polyurethane foam designed to save both time and money on construction projects.
Bayseal OCX enables fire protection code requirements to be met with a single product.
The product can be used without an additional ignition barrier or intumescent coating in service–only attics and crawlspaces. By removing the need to apply a separate ignition barrier, the company claims residential projects can be completed faster.
The foam meets the requirements of acceptance criteria AC377 Appendix X, and complies with both International Building Code and International Residential Code requirements for fire resistance. Furthermore, it is in compliance with the 2012 and 2009 International Energy Conservation Code, and can contribute to third-party sustainability programmes such as EnergyStar and LEED, Covestro said.
“As a former builder myself, I know time is money on the jobsite,” said Jeremy Parker, national sales manager at Covestro.
