SWD Urethane (Mesa, Ariz.) announced the development of a no-heat spray foam designed to work with the new Graco E-8p Reactor.
The product, Quik-Shield 106 ZH, is a 1/2 pound, open cell spray-foam insulation with a 4.0 R-value, is both ICC and CCMC (Canada) approved, and has passed the demanding SPF smoke and flame test, ASTM E-84 at 4 inches, the company says. The foam also carries the GREENGUARD Children & Schools certification for indoor air quality, with low VOCs and zero formaldehyde.
Jim Perkins, SWD Urethane president, said the spray foam combined with the E-8 Reactor offers a “breakthrough” system for the home-remodeling and retrofit market,” providing opportunities for improved energy performance and an economic system cost that could encourage expansion into spray-foam application by contractors.
The lightweight reactor is described as well suited for spraying attics and rim joists in existing homes and touching up foam insulation in tight areas, and can serve as a backup system for spray rigs. The foam is supplied in 5-gallon buckets rather than 55-gallon drums, due to the compact size and light weight of the spray equipment.
