Polyurethane Foam Systems Inc. Offers Experience, Service and Top-Notch Products to Canadian SPF Market
Polarfoam PF-7300-0 SOYA and the Handi-Foam® Quick Cure Are Among Company’s Unique Products

Polyurethane Foam Systems Inc. (PFSI) is one of Canada’s leading spray foam suppliers. Based in Waterloo, Ontario, the company offers a wide assortment of foam products and equipment for various applications including residential, agricultural and commercial locations.

The company’s flagship product, Polarfoam PF-7300-0 SOYA, is a “closed cell rigid polyurethane foam that solves building insulating design problems while combining proven thermal protection with superior air barrier/vapor barrier protection.” In fact, Polarfoam exceeds the requirements of a Type III air barrier as outlined by the National Research Council of Canada. Made from recycled materials and soybean oil, it is environmentally friendly and classified as a “zero ozone depletion substance.” Polarfoam insulation “provides increased energy efficiency that noticeably lowers utility bills while offering a healthier, cleaner environment through reduced dust and pollen.”

PFSI’s other notable products include the Handi-Foam® Quick Cure and E-84 Class 1 spray foams. These unique moisture-cured foam products are dispensed using the patented Handi-Gun® Dispensing Unit, a user-friendly, disposable, pressurized container. They are available in a variety of sizes, from small aerosol kits to large refillable systems.

Offering a typical R-value of 4-5 per inch, “Handi-Foam is intended to economically fill and insulate small cracks, gaps and voids in and around: air conditioners, electrical outlets, pipes, conduits, heating ducts, sill plates, refrigeration units and any other spaces between building products. Hand-Foam forms a permanent, crack-resistant barrier against drafts, noise, moisture, dust and pests. It bonds quickly to almost any surface, including wood, masonry, metal, glass and plastic. It is tack-free within 10 minutes, cuttable within 1 hour and cures within 12-24 hours.”

In addition to a proven product line, the extensive experience of PFSI’s staff helps set the company apart from their competition in the Canadian spray foam market. Dan Clayton, who founded the company in 2000, has 34 years of industry experience. Additionally, he has been a member of the Canadian Urethane Foam Contractors Association (CUFCA) for 21 years and a member of their Board of Directors for the last 10 years. PFSI’s consultant, Clifford Strassburger, has over 40 years of commercial polyurethane foam experience and is their primary contact for architects, inspectors, engineers, chemists and contractors. In total, the company’s staff has over 175 years of combined experience in the spray foam industry.

PFSI lists exceptional service as another of their differentiators. The company offers machine training programs in conjunction with the CUFCA as well as full certification courses. Additionally, they provide “comprehensive trade show support with advertising brochures, booths and promotional material featuring the company mascot Paws the Polar Bear.”

The company’s strategic locations throughout Canada also offer another competitive advantage. In addition to the company’s headquarters in Waterloo, Ontario, PFSI maintains warehouse distribution locations in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg.
