Seattle, Washington -- Gaco Western has announced that its WallFoam 183M has met flammability test criteria for attics and crawl spaces set by the International Code Council Evaluation Services (ICC-ES).
With the approval, the polyurethane foam can be used in unoccupied attic and crawl spaces without the use of ignition barrier or intumescent coating, a 30 July Gaco statement said.
"WallFoam 183M is HFC-blown zero ozone-depleting liquid spray foam insulation containing polyols derived from naturally renewable oils, post-consumer recycled plastics and pre-consumer recycled materials," Gaco said, adding that the product contains no CFC's (chlorofluorocarbons), HCFC's (Hydrochlorofluorocarbons) or other gases harmful to the environment," Gaco said.
"Contractors are focused on the bottom line; this new technology will help them increase profits without sacrificing quality or safety," said Tom Sojak, vice president of sales for the company's WallFoam division. (RD)
