Breakthrough Formulation Creates New Spray Foam Insulation Category
Mesa, Arizona (PRWEB) February 20, 2016
SWD Urethane, a spray polyurethane foam (SPF) manufacturer in the southwestern United States, has announced the release of their new Quik Shield 108 Ultra-Low Density SPF, creating a revolutionary new category of open-cell spray foam insulation.
Quik-Shield 108 is the first Ultra-Low Density product ever, at a nominal 0.4 lbs./cu. ft. This gives a 25% greater yield over traditional 0.5 lbs./cu. ft. open-cell spray foam. Greater yield significantly reduces material cost for projects, allowing contractors to be more competitive in bids.Quik-Shield 108 bridges the price gap between superior performing spray foam and the cheaper traditional insulation products.
Quik-Shield 108 also features:
- Revolutionary Expansion and 360° Cavity Fill—enables applicators to fill an entire wall cavity with a single, zipping motion: This reduces applicator fatigue and increases job productivity by up to 20%.
Long-Range Application—applicators can now spray an 8-inch pass on a roof deck from up to 15 feet away without the foam dripping or falling off the deck. Contractors can do away with ladders and scaffolding in some instances, which makes the job safer and less time-consuming.
"We're really excited about Quik-Shield 108 and the effects it will have for spray foam contractors and applicators," quoted Jim Perkins, President of SWD Urethane. "It's always been our goal to make spraying foam easier for applicators and to make jobsites safer and more efficient. No other product on the market makes such huge strides in application ease and job site efficiency like Quik-Shield 108 does—the unique single pass full fill of the wall cavity and spraying a roof deck from 15 feet away. It will transform the way spray foam contractors stage and complete jobs."
