New Canaan, Connecticut -- Spray Foam Polymers, said in a statement that its Flameguard FG500 spray foam formulation has passed preliminary tests which will help it meet ICC/IRR appendix X approval without an ignition barrier.
Spray Foam Polymers said it wanted to create a high quality, high yield fire-safe foam. The company adds that its FG500 has less smoke output, virtually no flame, and better performing physical properties when compared to the competition.
"With the rapid and ongoing changes in today's building codes, it is important to offer a completely fire-safe foam without the need to coat the foam with an ignition barrier in attics and crawl spaces," said Richard Ettinger, General Manager of Spray Foam Polymers. "We are extremely excited about the launch of FG500."
Ettinger said: "Flameguard FG500 will increase our customers profits and eliminate the need for an ignition barrier.".
