Seattle, Washington -- Gaco Western's GacoGreen 052/052N open cell foam has received an evaluation report from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), which the spray foam insulation maker says provides evidence that the spray-applied polyurethane foam meets certain fire code requirements.
Gaco said in a 14 June news release that GacoGreen 052/052N has one of the thinnest coating requirements for alternative ignition barriers with only 3 dry mils (0.076 mm) required when using DC 315 intumescent coating.
The Seattle, Washington-headquartered company added that the open cell foam is a Class 1 fire rated foam and meets the requirements of ICC-ES AC377 acceptance criteria for foam plastic insulation.
It is a water-blown, spray-applied system cures to a semi-rigid very low-density foam that forms a "completely sealed air barrier that guards against air infiltration for the life of the building," Gaco said.
"Contractors are focused on the bottom line and their ability to meet code requirements for alternative ignition and thermal barriers over GacoGreen 052/052N will help them save time and increase profits without sacrificing quality or safety," commented Tom Sojak, vice president of Sales, Gaco WallFoam.
