The trade association representing the spray applied and injected polyurethane foam industry has created a new website to cover the product’s benefits and applications in a variety of situations. The website for the British Urethane Foam Contractors Association is at www.bufca.co.uk.
Spray applied or injected foam should assist specifiers who need to meet the increased fabric performance requirements of the 2014 Part L Building Regulations in new build and Scottish Building Standards, Part 6 ‘Energy’. The process is also recommended to bring older properties up to high standards of thermal performance, including hard-to-heat properties which may be difficult to treat with other materials. It is particularly useful in flood plain areas as an extra layer of resistance to the ingress of flood water through the outer walls.
