Bayer MaterialScience LLC Rejoins SPFA

Bayer MaterialScience LLC has rejoined the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA) and will support its efforts to raise industry standards for spray foam application training and certification.  

The SPFA has designed a sprayfoam insulation contractor certification program that requires applicators to have the necessary background, training, and testing to install spray polyurethane foam safely. Bayer, who had developed its own applicator training program, will now recognize the SPFA Insulation Master Installer certification as comparable to the Bayer bronze accreditation level for spray polyurethane foam application.

Bayer will work with the SPFA to improve their current certification program, as well as expand its coverage to include contractor companies, distributors and manufacturers. As an industry leader, Bayer recognizes the importance of customer accreditation and for every spray foam applicator to have the proper safety and application training. Bayer will continue its efforts through the SPFA, the Center for the Polyurethane Industry’s Spray Foam Coalition, the Insulation Contractors Association of America and other organizations to advance spray polyurethane foam product stewardship along the value chain.  

Renewing its membership in the SPFA will give Bayer an added opportunity to support the industry through product stewardship, codes initiatives, research, and educational programs to connect with customers.
