Introducing the low pressure foam that thinks it's high pressure
Installing spray foam in homes used to mean a significant expense for builders, who had to invest in a large spray foam rig.
Now, with the introduction of FROTH-PAK™ ULTRA Premium Foam Insulation from Dow Building Solutions, builders can get the same performance attributes as high-pressure foam in a low-pressure spray foam system, without the expense of a rig.
“This innovative solution to the marketplace helps fill an unmet need – opening up new job opportunities for contractors, helping them boost profitability and grow their business," said Joe Barrow, project leader for Dow. “FROTH-PAK™ ULTRA can be used on smaller jobs, without tying up large rigs.”
The product is considered a game-changer in the industry, allowing builders to do jobs they couldn’t do before. It also enables contractors looking to enter the market to do so without having to purchase a large spray rig.
FROTH-PAK™ ULTRA Premium Foam Insulation is approved for use in many more applications than other low-pressure spray foams. It has no length or width restrictions and can be left exposed up to 8 inches thick in rim joists and 10 inches thick in uninhabitable attics and ventilated crawl spaces. And occupants can re-enter after one hour (when proper ventilation is employed) vs 24 hours with high pressure drum systems.
