Spray Polyurethane Foam - Health and Safety Guide

With the use of spray polyurethane foam (SPF) expected to increase over the coming decades, the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) of the American Chemistry Council and other trade associations are working together on a product stewardship program intended to enhance the professional spray polyurethane foam (SPF) contractors’ understanding of both the benefits of spray polyurethane foam and safe use and handling practices during installation.  This important program will also reach beyond professional workers to homeowners and those in the building and construction community. is proud to help support this program by sharing program materials and facilitating discussion in the spray foam community about health and safety.

SPF applicators, helpers and other on-site workers need to understand that proper protective equipment and other precautions are essential to the safe installation of spray foam.  In addition, applicators can play a critical role in helping to educate home and building owners not only about the benefits of SPF, but the importance of safety during and after installation.
