Spray Polyurethane Foam Field Quality Assurance Program

Exova is the Field Quality Assurance provider of choice for the Spray Polyurethane Foam industry in Canada and the US, providing a practical method of assuring customers, architects and inspectors that installed product complies with the requirements of the building code and national standards.

As a site-manufacture product, the application of spray-applied polyurethane foam does not benefit from the isolated and controlled environment of a manufacturing plant and the rigorous quality checks that many products undergo before making it to their end use. It is therefore vital for the performance of spray polyurethane foam to be assessed in the field.
Infrastructure spray polyurethane
In order to be applied in the field, the material itself must undergo testing in the lab. Exova is well equipped and experienced in assessing the compliance of any Spray Polyurethane Foam system to North American standards referenced by Canadian and American Building Codes, or for listing by the Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CMMC), to verify that the manufacturer is producing a quality product.

The next step of the Field Quality Assurance Program is to ensure that the application of that foam is producing a product that will peform as expected. There are many key factors that affect the quality of an applied Spray Polyurethane Foam product:

  •     Site Conditions (wind, temperature etc);
  •     Substrates (dirt/grease, too hot/cold);
  •     Applicator knowledge and experience;
  •     Equipment malfunction;
  •     Chemical handling and storage.

Exova's FQAP Program
