In support of its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while delivering sustainable innovation, DuPont has announced a new standard for two-component polyurethane foams with the launch of the HFC-free Froth-Pak™ Spray Foam.
Froth-Pak Spray Foam offers customers an innovative solution with a significant global warming potential (GWP) reduction, while helping advance DuPont’s 2030 Sustainability Goals. The newly enhanced, innovative line of spray foam solutions deliver a GWP reduction of more than 99% as compared to current formulations. Froth-Pak contains no ozone depleting chemicals or HFCs while elevating the performance attributes professional contractors expect from DuPont.
This latest innovation from DuPont represents the next step forward in the evolution of the Froth-Pak brand, introduced more than 50 years ago. Froth-Pak is the all-in-one self-contained and easily portable low-pressure spray foam kit designed for professional contractors. These heavy-duty, two-component foams work quickly and efficiently to fill larger gaps and penetrations, providing thermal, air, and moisture management that contributes to operational building energy efficiency over the lifetime of buildings.
Proper air sealing and insulation with spray polyurethane foams such as Froth-Pak, combined with HVAC systems, helps improve indoor air quality, reducing air infiltration and the dust and allergens that come along with it. By controlling moisture intrusion, Froth-Pak closed cell products can mitigate the effects of moisture damage in the form of rot, decay, and mold, improving building resilience. Properly installed sealing and insulation products such as Froth-Pak can save homeowners on average 30% on heating and cooling bills annually. Compatible with other materials used to obtain LEED® certification, Froth-Pak Spray Foams quickly adhere to a variety of building materials and substrates. In addition to the elimination of HFC blowing agents, Froth-Pak Spray Foam now has improved curing time, reduction in overspray with new patent-pending application nozzles, and further improved closed cell content.
Froth-Pak is available in variety of options and sizes, including: Froth-Pak Spray Foam Sealant, which is a two-component, quick-cure polyurethane foam that fills penetrations and cracks in rim joists, roof wall junctures, and around pipes and ducts greater than 2″ and less than 4″ wide; and Froth-Pak Spray Foam Insulation, which is a Class A Fire Rated two-component, quick-cure polyurethane foam that fills cavities, penetrations, and cracks in rim joists, roof wall junctures, and around pipes and ducts up to 2” thick.
