DC 315 Passes NFPA 286 Over NCFI’s Sealite 0.5 lb/ft³ Open-Cell Spray Foam
NCFI Polyurethanes and International Fireproof Technology, Inc. (Paint to Protect) announced the test results

The companies ran a NFPA 286 test of DC 315 over NCFI’s Sealite™ 0.5 lb/ft³ open-cell spray polyurethane foam. This testing satisfies the requirements of the ICC regarding acceptable testing certification requirements to be used in lieu of the requirement for a 15 minute thermal barrier when applied over NCFI’s Sealite.

Gary Wolfe, Executive Vice President of IFTI states, “We have proven that DC315, when applied to our specifications, per the test reports, is a low cost, easy to use solution to a building code issue.” Mr. Wolfe goes on to say that, “We have passed testing now on many national brands of foam, using both the NFPA 286 standards and the UL1715 standards to show the power and performance of our DC 315.

I would like to personally thank all the staff of NCFI Polyurethanes that have been working with us on testing, and their efforts to educate the market on proper application of Ignition and Thermal Barriers to satisfy the codes.”
