High-performance building envelopes
High-performance building envelopes for all types of buildings are achieved using BASF spray-applied polyurethane foam (SPF), one of the most effective, versatile systems products available. BASF SPF is your leading systems house, offering open-cell and closed-cell SPF wall insulation, insulating air barrier systems and high-performance roofing systems.
Unequalled air sealing properties, high insulation values, near zero-air-permeability, increased building strength and severe weather resistance contribute to increased occupant comfort, improved indoor air quality, and reduced operating costs. A lower environmental impact is achieved with zero-ozone-depleting blowing agents and low VOCs—some formulations also use significant recycled content and rapidly renewable resources.
SPF products in the BASF portfolio include COMFORT FOAM®, ENERTITE™, WALLTITE®, WALLTITE® ECO™, ELASTOSPRAY®, ELASTOCOAT™ and SPRAYTITE®.
