NEW ASTM STANDARD PRACTICE FOR SPF
INSULATION INSTALLATION NOW AVAILABLE

A

pril 26 - Last month the ASTM C16 committee approved and
published a new standard practice for the installation of spray
foam insulation. This consensus standard was developed over the
past 18 months by an ASTM task group (WK41440) as part of the
ASTM C16.40 subcommittee, with input from the SPFA Building
Envelope Committee. This practice, ASTM C1848-17 "Standard
Practice for Installation of High-Pressure Spray Polyurethane
Foam Insulation for the Building Enclosure", outlines general
procedures that are recommended for correct installation of spray
polyurethane foam (SPF) as an insulation in the building enclosure
including; walls, ceilings, attics, floors, crawl spaces, attics and
foundations. It provides high-level guidance for substrate preparation, SPF equipment, installer qualifications, safety, products,
protective coatings, application and inspection/sampling. It will
become an essential reference for SPFA's Professional Certification
Programs, and may be used by SPF customers (building owners
and managers, general contractors, architects and specifiers) to
help establish minimum 'best practice' installation requirements
to be used by SPF insulation contractors.
This document can be purchased directly from the ASTM
website here: https://www.astm.org/Standards/C1848.htm

Director at rickduncan@sprayfoam.org, (703) 222-4269.
