NCFI Says Spray-Foam Insulation Earns ICC Approval Under 2012 Building Code

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Comment | More

NCFI Polyurethanes (Mount Airy, N.C.) reports that its Sealite™ open-cell spray-foam insulation meets new 2012 building-code requirements based on a recent International Code Council (ICC) Evaluation Service report.

NCFI Polyurethanes

Specifically, the report (ESR-1154) certifies per ASTM E 970 that the spray-foam insulation can be left exposed on attic floors without an ignition barrier; recognizes the product for all building types under the IRC and IBC; and qualifies DC 315 fireproof paint applied over the product as a thermal-barrier alternative.

The product is a spray-applied cellular polyurethane foam plastic that can be installed in cavities of roofs, ceilings, floors, and stud-wall assemblies, the company says.

ICC-ES evaluates product compliance with ICC codes and standards used to construct residential and commercial buildings.
