From the Current Issue of SPRAYFOAM PROFESSIONAL Magazine
Since 2009, the ACC Center for Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) has worked to answer several questions posed by federal agency representatives. These questions relate to the installation of spray polyurethane foam (SPF) and to the final product itself.

One project is to develop an emissions testing protocol specific to SPF insulation and the other project is to consider changes in ventilation rates on the airborne concentrations of chemical vapors and particulates associated with SPF application work. Both projects are underway now and regular updates are provided at the annual CPI Technical Conference and other spray foam meetings throughout the year.
