How SPF Helps Protect Commercial Roofing & Buildings, Lincoln, Nebraska
When it comes to keeping office buildings well-insulated and free of mold, spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is the ideal material to install. That's because its chemical properties are designed to create barriers to block out moisture, air, and contaminants. The commercial roofing experts at A&M Contractors in Lincoln, NE, often outfit businesses with SPF installations. Below, they share how the material works, so you can decide if it will best suit your needs.

A Guide to SPF & How It Works

Chemical Makeup

Commonly known as SPF, the material is formed through a complex mixing and heating process that produces insulated foam. The chemical makeup, which includes polyol resin and isocyanate, creates a rigid foam that can expand up to 30 times from a liquid state. After the material is cured and solidified, the final product is the powerful SPF.

Creates Durable Barriers

The durable seal offers optimum insulation designed to keep unwanted cold drafts out and comfortable air in. As a result, building owners will notice savings on heating and cooling bills.

Mold Prevention

Because the SPF forms a rigid barrier after application, it also keeps moisture from infiltrating the building. Dampness is the trigger point for mold and mildew to incubate and spread. An SPF application prevents this type of scenario, which can lead to health hazards and property damage. 
 
For maximum energy efficiency, air-tight insulation, and mold spore prevention, SPF remains the ideal solution for a wide range of buildings.
