Huntsman Corporation announced its publication of a white paper titled, “Wind Uplift and Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF).” The paper addresses the role closed cell SPF plays in achieving a strong roof adhesion, which can help prevent damages caused by wind uplift and water from rain during heavy storm events. 

“Preparing your home or structure for extreme weather conditions is of the utmost importance,” said Trent Shidaker, Business Manager, Huntsman Polyurethanes. “The use of spray foam insulation provides reinforced protection against damage from wind uplift caused by hurricanes.” 

The white paper discusses effective air barrier design and installation; how SPF helps a roof’s racking strength and how SPF can be used to combat and minimize wind damage.
