Washington, DC - The US Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) has released a new video to show professional installers good safety practices for low-pressure, two-component spray polyurethane foam (SPF) application.
The video, the latest of the free resources offered by CPI, part of the American Chemistry Council, is available to view or download from the CPI Spray Polyurethane Foam Health and Safety website, www.spraypolyurethane.org.
The nine-minute video, "Working Safely with Low-Pressure Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation," is targeted at weatherisation professionals and spray foam contractors applying low-pressure SPF.
It includes information about the chemicals used to make SPF, personal protective equipment (PPE), appropriate places to install SPF, job site preparation, clean-up, and safety practices, says CPI. The video complements CPI's high-pressure SPF health and safety training programme.
"Spray foam is an excellent insulation material that offers many great benefits. CPI and our members want to help make quality information about appropriate safety practices readily available. This video and CPI's other free resources are a reflection of the industry's commitment to product stewardship, health and safety. We offer a growing library of information that can help spray foam and weatherization professionals better recognize and employ good safety practices," said Lee Salamone, senior director of CPI, in a 14 Nov press statement.
