ELASTOSPRAY® spray foam is a closed-cell, rigid polyurethane foam. It is produced by an exothermic reaction between a polyol component and an isocyanate. At the end of the reaction phase, the foam begins to solidify and cure. Applied with a spray gun in several layers, ELASTOSPRAY® provides seamless thermal protection.
The field of application covers virtually all areas of flat and pitched roofs, ceilings, walls and floors. This was the best choice for insulation as it sealed the hard to reach places in the building.
The BASF spray polyurethane foam application process features a wide range of specially formulated offerings that meet specific site and surface requirements. Due to the technical skills required for this technology, BASF deployed local expertise to train and guide the approved spray contractors.
BASF is conscious of its responsibility and is continuously investing in a strong innovative capability, by not only improving the performance of our products, but also in enhancing their environmental profile. The latest outcome of these endeavors in the spray foam insulation sector is the development of a new generation of spray foams that sets new standards of environmental compatibility.
BASF also offers its customers a comprehensive technical support from start to completion of a project ensuring that the customers’ needs are fulfilled.
