For some, a work truck is just a truck. It's simply a vehicle that gets employees and equipment to the job site. For sprayfoam professionals, depending on the weight that needs to be hauled, the vehicle could be light duty, it could be a box truck or it could be somewhere in the middle. Be sure to read "Top Trucks for SPF Contractors" by Fiona Soltes to help determine which type of truck is best for your operation.

SPFA News and Announcements
Thanks to SPFA Technical Director Rick Duncan, spray polyurethane foam is the subject of quite a few articles in various industry publications. These articles are examples of how SPFA continually educates others about the benefits of SPF and promotes and invests in SPF's future. These articles are also excellent pieces for SPFA members to use for marketing purposes.
The winners of the SPFA National Industry Excellence Awards 2016 were announced at the Sprayfoam 2016 Convention & Expo during the Awards Luncheon on Feb. 10, 2016. See who won!

R-value alone does not tell the whole story. R-value of an insulation can be derated, based on poor application, this is where effective R-value comes into play. Insulation is designed to be installed so that it is in contact with an air barrier at all six faces of the insulation. So, if fiberglass or cellulose is not installed properly – is not uniform and has gaps and voids – it can be derated. Meaning its effective R-value would only be a fraction of the listed, tested value.
