Bagram, Afghanistan - Spray foam may have uses for insulating army structures in Afghanistan, and the contracting agency has put out a call for information on the process from Bagram Air Base (BAF).
According to the request, BAF is "researching the possibilities of having spray foam insulation applied on buildings and structures throughout the Afghanistan area of operations. The foam will be applied to buildings and structures built with a variety of construction materials including fabric (tents), wood (b-huts), stone (local construction)/brick and mortar and metal (relocatable buildings] that is modified connex container structures)."
An estimated 4 million sq.ft (371 700 sq.m) of surface will require covering with sound-insulating, waterproofing and fire retardant foam, the organisation says.
BAF is looking for a contractor to provide trained operators, supervisors and inspectors from either the local population or from outside Afghanistan, who have the knowledge and experience to apply this foam according to the manufacturer's recommended process.
When applied, the foam should have insulating properties of R-4 per inch with a total R-rating of R-8 or greater, the request said.
