What is Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF)?

SPF or Spray Polyurethane Foam describes a category of high-performance spray foam insulation and air barrier material that delivers multiple benefits in one application. These advantages include high insulation values, near-zero air permeability, increased building strength, severe weather and flood resistance, increased occupant comfort, improved indoor air quality, reduced operating costs and lower environmental impacts.


Because spray polyurethane foam is fully adhering and seals hard-to-reach penetrations, it provides unequaled air sealing properties for the entire building envelope. Reduced uncontrolled air leakage results in lower utility bills and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.


BASF manufactures both closed-cell and open-cell spray polyurethane foam products for residential and commercial construction, providing the right SPF system for any type of well-engineered building envelope. The BASF two component application process features a wide range of specially formulated polyurethane spray foam offerings that meet specific site and surface requirements.


Additionally, BASF also offers a number of waterproofing or damp-proof coating materials resulting in high performance, durable BASF SPF Roofing Systems for any climate that stand the test of time.


Due to the technical skill required, these systems must only be applied by trained contractors within BASF's approved applicator network.


SPF is part of the BASF Performance Materials Construction division, which provides better, faster and more cost effective construction solutions. Whether new construction, retrofit or restoration, BASF higher-performing materials improve energy efficiency, increase durability and help speed construction, while also offering a lower lifecycle cost and reduced environmental impact.
