SPFA was invited to be a presenter at the 2013 NAHB International Builders Show (IBS) in Las Vegas Jan. 22, 2013. The session addressed issues related to SPF health and safety,installation practice, SPF performance, the SPFA Professional Certification Program, the new SPF industry Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), and other issues of interest and relevance to home builders. To answer many questions on SPF, SPFA also delivered a “Builder’s Package” of information on SPF condensed in a manner that would make it easy for home builders to get the information they need about SPF. In addition to SPFA, Lee Salamone, Senior Director of CPI and a homebuilder familiar with SPF use, participated on a panel discussion during the session. Ms. Salamone addressed regulatory topics, industry research and CPI/Sprayfoam Coalition’s recent activities.

SPFA sponsored part of the National Institute of Building Science (NIBS) Annual Meeting: Building Innovation 2013 – in Washington, D.C. This is the first in a series of independent annual events that will support the Institute’s commitment to bring together representatives of the entire building community to review advancements in science and technology and develop solutions for our built environment.

Results of SPFA's Life Cycle Assessment study were included in a recent issue of PU Magazine International, which features the latest information about the rubber, polyurethanes and thermoplastic elastomers industries. SPFA's technical services director, Richard Duncan, PE, Ph.D., contributed to this article entitled "LCA of SPF insulation for residential and commercial building applications."
