Polyurethane foam application allows an optimal insulation and significant energy savings by improving home comfort and reducing the cost of heating and / or cooling.
This solution is applied not only to buildings and structural components, but also to industrial plants and pipelines.
What is Polyurethane Foam?
Rigid polyurethane foam, which is used in construction, is an insulating foam with a ultra-fine closed cell structure.
Thanks to the ability of the polyurethane foam to conform perfectly to volumes and surfaces to isolate and to adhere firmly to any type of support it is today the best solution for thickness-cost-performance ratio.
The insulating treatment can be applied to flat, inclined and vertical surfaces.
Applications in Construction
The insulation with rigid polyurethane foam, in case of application for industrial or zoo-technical use, makes it possible to insulate and prevent condensation on the warehouses roofing.
P.I. 2000 performs insulation interventions by spray polyurethane applied both in extrados and in extrados of the roof or wall covering layer. Depending on the request of the thermotechnic specialist or the customer it is identified the correct thickness of the material to be laid.
The insulation is accomplished through the use of special high-pressure machines that allow a fast diffusion of the compound powder. Its application allows to coat and insulate in a short time every type of coverage, even if dimensions are large.
Its use is also indicated as an encapsulant for asbestos in fiber cement.
The outside of the polyurethane is protected by special paints available in the following colours: red, green, gray, white.
The insulation with spray polyurethane in the case of civil construction makes it possible to effectively recover all types of roofing, interior ceiling, wall or floor, having acoustic or thermal insulation problems.
It is possible to run the application both outdoor and indoor. The recovery of roofingss will prolong the life of tar sheaths or covers, with the possibility of subsequent applications of the tiles. This ensures a perfect insulation and therefore significant cost savings in heating.
The internal application on ceilings, walls or floors, solves every problem of sound and moisture insulation. Once realized the polyurethane layer it is then possible to cover the affected area with any type of coating.
In the case of civil covers this type of insulation greatly reduces the dispersion of the internal temperatures and incoming noise emissions but especially in output, ensuring a full insulation and reducing the costs of households.
The Main Benefits
The main advantage of the polyurethane foam is to conform perfectly to the surfaces and adhere to any type of substrate, creating a continuous insulating layer, without any thermal bridges and solidly anchored to the structure.
It is suitable for all building works, even those complex and complicated, and it also provides good thermal and acoustic insulation.
- It is environmentally friendly/strong>. Polyurethane is an inert material that does not release fibers and does not constitute pollution factor; also it allows to reduce the emissions of gases derived from heating that favor the greenhouse effect thanks to the good insulation of the housing.
- Greater insulation. At the same thickness the polyurethane insulate more than any other material.
- It is walkable. And it is resistant to loads and compatible with other building materials.
- It lasts over time. It insulates forever stating the energy performance in the long run.
- It is light. Its structure is made of foam cells, so slight that thanks to the low thermal conductivity it allows a lower use of material compared to other insulation products and therefore a lower weight.
