DC 315 Passes NFPA 286 Over Lapolla Closed-Cell Spray Foam
Testing satisfies the requirements of the ICC regarding acceptable testing certification requirements

International Fireproof Technology, Inc. ran a NFPA 286 test of DC 315 over Lapolla FL 2000 2lb/ft³ closed-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 Lapolla FL 2000 closed-cell spray polyurethane foam.

Gary Wolfe, Executive Vice President of IFTI states, “We have proven that DC 315, 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, “We have passed NFPA 286 testing now on both open cell and close cell foams, using both the NFPA 286 standards to show the power and performance of our DC 315”.

“I would like to personally thank all the staff of Lapolla 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.”
